We all know there is an ongoing ammunition shortage here in the United States of America. All ammunition manufacturers are running at or as close as possible to 100% production. Reloading supplies are in short supply because the manufacturers are using what they used to ship out for reloading, to load bulk ammo from what I hear. Could this shortage effectively limit the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Hamas, etc... ability to have small arms battles with our troops, in turn result in the increase of IED attacks, or just plain slow the war to a slow and grinding halt? I'm not naïve to think other countries aren't supplying them with ammo but many other countries have to be feeling this also. For instance Russian made ammo is being shipped here to capitalize on our shortage(not that the Russians would supply them due to past conflicts). Just a thought that popped into my feeble mind out of nowhere!
