    There’s a ton of that 9mm at my local sporting goods store, at $1.15 a round. It can sit there.

    I disliked this video. The content could have been ok, instead you found hungover employee of the month attempting to speak. Worst part is the question of, “where is ammo the ammo?” Never got an answer.
    *note: Sig makes some of the best fmj ammo for accuracy imo. And the Vcrown jhp is a winner too. I’ll be buying more and more as I see it. Thanks for video

    Yawn !

  4. Rocky Stellone on November 9, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    Not enough

  5. SNOW FALL on November 9, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    Crazy because they definitely are holding back ammo from the market

  6. Dominick Colasanto on November 9, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    SIG #1

  7. drakke125 on November 9, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    i remember watching one or two guntubers sharing gun industry news, didn’t Sig have a contract with the US military in weapons and/or ammo?

    More ammo for civilians please. Don’t need to be arming the military that can be used against the people.

  8. Michael Hayes on November 9, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    I haven’t seen any sig ammo in two years I thought they were closed

  9. saisandoval on November 9, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    If people are buying up all the ammo. Why are they so expensive if there is so many boxes on the shelves. It’s demand, it’s called gauging. We really need money right now but these large companies are greedy.

  10. Xyr on November 9, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    They don’t even sell 5.56 or 223, cringe

  11. rk ow on November 9, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Good video It’s some of the most consistent ammo I’ve shot and weighed.

  12. BigD888123 on November 9, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    Not enough.

  14. How bout Using your head on November 9, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Read some of the posts and some of the replies and alot of them are right. Isn’t any 9mm in my area of Arkansas

  15. Art Vogt on November 9, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    cylindrical shape closed on one end opened on the other. That would be a cup. 😉

  16. Joe Robertson on November 9, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    They need that ammo in Afghanistan 9mm and 5.56mm to go with the 300,000 weapons Bunker Joe gave them.

  17. AmeriCanonStudios on November 9, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    this guy doesn’t seem like he knows what he’s talking about by the way he talks about the factory he supposedly runs

    Working in Pharmaceuticals, They could double or triple their output if they went full automation. It would be a hefty investment, but the demand surely isn’t going to go away…I am an automation engineer and we have increased our capacity at my facility by over 50 million vials….Where they though t the "Cap" was 29 million…..

  20. Donnie Savage on November 9, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Where is the ammo somebody’s lying

  21. AllFouRoux on November 9, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    I am 99.9% sure this video does not contain the proper FTC disclosure.

  22. Brian Bertram on November 9, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Im sure part of the reason, there are more firearm owners now than ever. Means more people are buying ammo.

    Those who have been buying ammo for awhile, when they go to stores it looks like they have less ammo, so they buy more even if they dont need it. But just in case they cant find it later. I know ive bought ammo that way.

    Everyone wants ammo and it seems harder to find. Thats what I think.

  23. David on November 9, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    Ball ammo has been out of stock for quite some time on their website , they will sell you some expensive hollow point though , come on sig give us shooters some ammo

  24. SpaceRanger on November 9, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    No wonder there’s no ammo.i would have thought there were hundreds of people working here

  25. RUSSIANAK47 on November 9, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    That’s alot of ammo for stores to have shortages….🤷🏻‍♂️

  26. G Love on November 9, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    The making of all this death and destruction, this is nothing to praise and bost about! These idiots talk about this like they are making candy.

  27. Jason K on November 9, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Their pro shop in NH barely has any in stock. But I did witness a truck delivering ammo to them, with an armed guard escort.

  28. Karl Marz on November 9, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    I assume the military are gobbling up their ammo, Sig in general, hopefully has got quality control in mind from past fails!

  29. Leland Holton on November 9, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Too bad 1 out 10 boxes of 50 round fmj is missing a primer.

  30. Andy P on November 9, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Just 1 machine from 1 company produces 26 million rounds in 6 months and there are a dozen ammo making companies in the US, yet there is still an ammo shortage. Somebodies have been hoarding ammo like crazy or what ??

  31. SNOW FALL on November 9, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    Taliban must’ve got this cause I can’t get any …

  32. D. Jensen on November 9, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    Wonder how difficult it would be to manufacture primers? That’s all I need…any ol’ large rifle primer. Plan "A" (waiting) isn’t working. Time for Plan "B" methinks.

  33. Michael Sweaney on November 9, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    So, how much of the ammo was going to Afghanistan??? 🤔🤔

  34. Fahk Joe Byden on November 9, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Title shouldbread:
    How much 9mm ammo isnt going to you the consumer.

  35. J Perry on November 9, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    price gouging at its best just bc they can 500,000 9mm in an 8 hour shift lmao

  36. Jean Luc Picard on November 9, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    The answer: "Not enough!"

  37. dande tande on November 9, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Not the best ammo tho

  38. Jt Nelson on November 9, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    Everytime Jason spoke, I felt the energy being drained from my body as if I had taken a sleeping pill…or a big a55 shroom…

  39. FRED MERTZ on November 9, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    SIG SAUR needs to form a strategic partnership with Ruger to expand and double production. There is no need to change over from caliber to caliber. Down time is wasted time and money.
    You want to sell guns ?
    GROW A HEALTHY GUN CULTURE.. it’s a message these gun manufacturers just don’t get.. keep ammo cheap, good quality, and plentiful.. people will shoot more. Shooting more wears out gun parts faster leading to more gun purchases.
    The gun club where I live and am a member has to close a few days a week because the members do not have the ammo to continue shooting as much as they are used to.

  40. Doug Caldwell on November 9, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Made in America. Just keep it up. 500K 9mm rounds. And the market just shot it right away and wants more.

  41. ray b on November 9, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Half a million rounds of 9mm in an eight hire shift…… then where the hell is all the ammo going ..

  42. Stephen Hart on November 9, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    people keep asked where all these rounds go, 26 million rounds is not that much ammo. thats 26,000 thousand round boxes. plus they have a DHS and Army m248, .300 win mag contracts.

  43. Larissa Powell on November 9, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    There full of bs my husband used to work for fiocchi ammo you notice how they don’t show the brass being made fiocchi had a contract with black stone ammunition than got bought out by fiocchi and the contracts transferred over the brass is made by fiocchi and shipped to sig in those plastic lined crates they showed

  44. Ken Lemanski on November 9, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Being fully automated, is there only one shift?

  45. Razorbak on November 9, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    A little of topic here but….when potato head says "they told me not to take questions" after his appearances…. why is there not a reporter asking him "Who is they?"

  46. DingDongDaddy on November 9, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    I don’t buy sig ammo – but I cc a 938. 👍🏽

  47. Thomas Puma on November 9, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Thanks for your time we need as much ammo as possible

  48. Walther502 on November 9, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    The only ammo y’all are pushing are hollow points and it’s a shame. No FMJ anywhere??????????

  49. John Pick on November 9, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    I second most comments about availability. I’ve only seen sig ammo once. Employees wearing "woke masks" tells you everything.

  50. W SMITH on November 9, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    First time watching this channel. Please do some volume leveling. The host is like 2-3 times louder than the guy in the factory. I skipped everything the host said because it was just too LOUD.
