It was announced yesterday the new plant in Marshall was cutting back production due to low demand for shot gun shells. That site would turn to distribution and logistics. I guess they should make .22.

I hate to hear that. I have a sxs Winchester that I thought the firing spring pins were bad, but the "Winchester guru" at McBrides told me it was the primer. He put me onto Rio's and haven't had a problem since.

Some of that is Rio's own doing, i know of several youth shooting groups who contacted them to try and set up youth group accounts and they refuse just told our group to purchasr through retailers. There competitors however were more than happy to set up with 4h and FFA clubs. There are a lot of youth shooting groups in the nation some other companies figured that out and have been grooming there relationships with the organizations.
