    I agree. However, I also:

    In any case, I've emailed my contact but I have an old ATK email address for her -- and as of 2015 or so, the ATK ammo/sporting goods business was spun off into Vista Outdoors, so it may not even go through. Or she may still be with ATK, and not Vista. Who knows. In any case, the email didn't immediately bounce but that doesn't really mean anything. I'll give it a couple of days and then given her a call (assuming the number I have is still good).

    There are logistics companies that can handle this activity.....

    Possibly better.... If Federal shows any interest we could reach out to an ammo retailer like SGAmmo and see if they would be interested in joining. Maybe work a deal with them for distribution.....

    I just know the insane volume that LeVista moves, and for them to change their production line? Brother...I remember a while back on another site, someone tried to put together a group buy of 20,000 rounds of XM193, and ATK at the time didn't even give them the time of day...and that's a round they were actually making...

    SGA boxes up their "LE" ammo and sells to us dirty civilians. I dunno how that would work out...LeVista isn't like Hornady thankfully, but they still don't market their LE stuff direct to civilians.

    I really donít think thatís a problem we need to worry about. The likelihood of this working out is exceedingly low.

    Why are you looking at that? M1 or m2?

    Looks like the email address no longer works:

    There was a temporary problem delivering your message to xxxx.xxxx@atk.com. Gmail will retry for 47 more hours. You'll be notified if the delivery fails permanently.

    Are you a company/business owner? If not, you need to contact LEVista via a distributor. They do not sell to individuals, no-matter how much money you want to spend.
