International Sportsman obtained a letter to dealers from Vista Outdoor President Jason Vanderbrink, which announces a price increase on Federal, Remington, CCI, and Speer ammunition of 3-15 percent. We have reached out to Vista Outdoor to confirm. You can read the letter below:
Thank you for your business and for your continued support of American manufacturing. We have hired hundreds of people over the last 12 months and invested millions of dollars to produce more ammunition to meet our customer and consumer needs. During this year we have seen significant increases in raw material prices such as copper, zinc, and lead. Additionally, increases in labor and health care have exceeded our projections as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all.
Effective 4/1/2021 Federal, Remington, CCI, and SPEER ammunition will take a price increase of 3-15% across all products from our last price list. Unless you notify us to cancel an order, we will reprice all existing and future orders shipped on or after 4/1/2021 to the new 4/1 prices.
You will receive your finalized price list no later than February 19th.
Thank you for your continued support of our brands and our American workforce.
Jason R. Vanderbrink
