Beggars can’t be choosy!
I was trying to see what is going on?? I can only guess at this point.
You don't have to beg, you have to reload. PRC brass is available in-stock currently, and 7 PRC ammo is expected in-stock within a week-ish; from the usual online places.
If you want to know what's going on, you don't guess; you ask questions of those supposedly involved. If that seems intimidating to you, Occam's razor is really simple.
Which is more reasonable:
A) Hornady sits at the head of the Kabal, and is pretending an imaginary contract with some guy named not you, somehow binds you to it's terms.
B) Your gunsmith has a contract with Hornady for testing products(early releases, etc). Rather than doing so, he chose to make a buck selling it to random people. But in an attempt to shift his obligations on to you, is blaming them for "making him" hold you liable for his dealings.
They may want him to send early prototypes back to them. Prototypes aren't supposed to be out in the general public's hands. He is attempting to shift his responsibility on to you, plain and simple.
