We just got word that Remington Ammunition, recently purchased by the people who own Federal, Blazer, CCI, and Speer (Vista Outdoors), has just launched their website at Remington.com.
While the website looks to be populated with products, as of right now you cannot buy any ammo from their website. Each listing says “check with your local ammo store for availability.”
On the FAQ page, I ran into this question while searching for more info:
Can I buy direct? Remington does not sell ammunition direct at this time. We are proud to offer a wide selection of Remington accessories and merchandise available for direct purchase. To find an ammo store near you, click here.
So, they are not currently selling ammo “at this time.” Still, this is promising because just like Vista does with their other ammo properties, they will likely be selling ammunition online and shipping it direct to consumer (as long as you can do this in your area) at some point.
Here is a quote from Joel Hodgdon, Remington Ammunition’s Marketing Director in the press release we were sent:
Our redesigned site with new content, detailed product information, and easy shop-ability will allow Big Green fans to see Remington ammo in a new light. We want everyone who pulls a trigger to learn about our products and find out everything they need to know about Remington ammo.
The new website is only the beginning of what Big Green ammo wants to offer hunters and shooters. The new site is the tip of the iceberg…it shows our renewed commitment to quality, education and innovation in all things ammo.
This is great news and hopefully we’ll start to get pulled out of this ammo shortage we’re finding ourselves in once Remington is back up and running, and selling ammo at, full capacity.
