Two boxes of CORBON ammunition


COR®BON 9mm High-Velocity Loads

Getting the Lead Out — of the Entire U.S.?

Doe Run Company’s primary lead smelter based in Herculaneum, Missouri — the last such facility in the United States — is scheduled to close in December. The Herculaneum smelter is currently the only smelter in the United States which can produce lead bullion from raw lead ore that is mined nearby in Missouri’s extensive lead deposits, giving the smelter its “primary” designation, according to NRA-ILA. So, will consumers eventually feel this shutdown at the retail level — for example, reduced supplies of bullet components, higher prices, or more alternative bullet alloys?

This is not a custom race gun. This is a standard model 51567.


“Right on Target. Right On Price.” Armscor/Rock Island Armory Company Profile

Philippines-based company Arms Corporation of the Philippines (Armscor) has been in the firearms business since 1905. After receiving the country’s first official firearms license from the government in 1952, Armscor has moved full speed ahead ever since. They plan to grow their production facilities by double in 2013 and 2012 saw the development of the Armscor exclusive .22 TCM caliber. In 1985, Armscor Precision International opened its U.S. doors in Nevada and shortly after purchased Rock Island Armory. Armscor is some of the most reliable and consistent ammo for the cheapest price that Cheaper Than Dirt carries. As production grows, I’m anxious to see what lays ahead for Armscor and Rock Island Armory.
