    Default Hornady takes stand on New York

    "While it may not make a difference to New York, Hornady will not knowingly allow our ammunition to be sold to the State of NY or any NY agencies."

    As a loader I've leaned to Sierra's, but gonna throw some business their way.
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    Steve Hornady understands how marketing works and that taking this stand will likely benefit his company with additional sales revenue.

    I support him nevertheless. Hopefully the residents of NY will start to wake the fudge up and realize what their state government (Cuomo) is doing.

    Good for them. I wish other companies would follow their lead.

    I applaud Steve Hornady, it’s a great jesture. However, not one NY agency will cry over the lack of Hornady ammo. As good as their bullets are, they don’t have the ability to manufacture the ammo quantity large agencies like NYSP, NYPD, PAPD, Nassau and Suffolk Co require. Even small departments piggyback on the state contract. Federal, Speer and Winchester rain supreme in NY.

    Again, nice jesture...

    It's still symbolic, just like Dick's announcing that they will not sell AR15s - when they weren't selling AR15s anyway (except for one of their small subsidiaries).
    A Russian tale: Prince Igor is hunting in the woods in the dead of winter. The icy wind makes his eyes tear. A bird turns to another bird and says,"Look! He's crying!" The other bird says,"Don't watch his eyes, watch his hands."

    Thanks CEPH!

    I just ordered a bunch of .416 Rigby bullets from Buffalo Bore, Beartooth Bullets, and Natchez Shooting Supply, sadly none from Hornady.

    But I'm gonna fix that by ordering Hornady's on my next re-order.

    I tried to rec your post, but apparently I have to spread it around...

    Remember when Mark Serbu told the NYSP to go pound sand when other 50 caliber rifle manufacturers told NY they would not sell to them due to the Safe Act? We did a group buy on that and 96 guys jumped in on the fun...Looks like I might have to try some Hornady 308 heads...

    Now if we can get the major firearm manufacturers to follow suit. Didn't something like this happen out in California a few years ago?
