I saw that in the news yesterday. It failed to mention where they were moving from.

The plant is to be located in Chatham Co. near Savanah to get easy port access for shipping.

We need ammo shipping to interior America, NOT overseas!

With our manufacturers shipping millions of rounds to the Ukraine, ammo shortages are here to stay in the foreseeable future.

My guess would be Special Op's command is fielding new weapons with new cartridges and looks like Norma is one of them from what's in the rumor mill 338 Norma Mag.  U.S. does not like buying not made in the USA if they can help it,  Maybe that's why Norma is setting up a plant in the States, just like Beretta and Sig.

As long as the E U is buying F-35's made here, I'll take ammo from most sources!

US Special Operations Command has become the point of origin and point of sale for several .30 caliber and .33 caliber cartridges, plus the 6.5 Creedmoor and 6 ARC. No matter who makes the ammo, it is match grade (because it has to be) and there is no doubt in my mind the same specs will flow into the civilian market.
The research done by a Marine colonel showed hollow point match bullets can be used by US scout / sniper teams without violating the Geneva Convention rules on weapons. I donít know if this increased the prices of 168 grain Sierra Match Kings, but that was a go-to bullet for the teams using modified rifles chambered in 308 Win.
