Freedom Munitions Still In Business??

Last night I was online ammo shopping. My go to used to always be FM and I checked there site first, very disappointed. Are they still in business?
I was needing target grade, cheapest possible in .357mag, .44spl, .460Rowland, .300Blk. Everything "Out Of Stock." Well they don't show 460R. In stock ammo was high priced. So I moved on.

Georgia Arms was next, there prices are a little more but they had all 4 calibers "In Stock." ready to ship. I didn't order yet, I think my wife wants to visit her BFF who happens to live in Villa Rica GA, so I'll just go to the factory and buy direct.

This is I think the fourth time I have tried to order from FM and everything I need is out of stock.

I’ve checked with FM several times over the last few months and found like you did. Mostly out of stock and when in stock it’s too expensive anymore.
I’m glad that I found a new local gun smith that specializes in 1911’s and also manufactures .45.

Great Lakes Ammo, very good remanufactured ammo and reasonable prices. Check their web site.

P.S. they are local to me here in Michigan. I have personally been through their manufacturing plant and shot many rounds of their reman ammo. Top quality.

I had heard FM filed Chapter 11 last year. I thought I read something from the company about reorganization or something along those lines. I have not seen anything actually develop so it is not looking good.

Their sister company is still supplying Bulk Bullets (Xtreme Plated Bullets). I ordered some last month and they shipped pretty quickly.

I still get emails from FM but I haven’t ordered anything from them in a long time. I don’t even check their site anymore because nothing I want seems to be in stock when I was checking.

Pretty tough to compete with companies like Federal. 9mm selling for 15 cents and 5.56 for 22 cents delivered from Palmetto. Federal rebates are ending tomorrow.

I buy from Lucky Gunner or SG Ammo, whichever has the best price. I loved FM, but they were always sloooow.
