No More Ammunition From Russia? —A Hoax Gone Wild

    Earlier we posted about the rumor of ammunition supplies from Russia drying up and there would be no more.

    During our event today we had representatives from Wolf ammo present. Of course this was our first question. The short and sweet answer is no this won’t happen and it was simply a rumor started on the Internet. Wolf is still able to order a shipping container of ammunition from Russia without any difficulty at all.


    The representatives also stated that even if it were true the supplies of the same ammunition from countries eastern European countries would more than makeup for any shortfall.There are just to many other former Soviet plants in these other countries to make it a non-issue if it did happen sometime in the future.

    So readers it’s just another rumor than gained traction. There’s no need to run out and stock up on any Russian ammunition and those are the facts straight from the source.
