Default Question about Hornady and Remington

I emailed Hornady the other day and asked them if they were planning on producing a round for the 7mm Ultra Mag. Their answer to me was that they thought the manufacturer of the current rounds were doing a good job with them and weren't going to produce any rounds as of right now.

I have never heard of one company giving this type of answer unless they had their hands in it.

Last night I saw that Remington has some cartridges with the Hornady V-max bullets.......in the Premier shells.

Is Hornady producing the Premier shells for Remington.......That is what it looks like to me....

Since Remington is one of the world's "big boys" as far as arms and ammo manufacture is concerned, I kinda doubt it. However, it is possible that Rem. is buying Hornady bullets for that ammo line....

The return message from Hornady is very perplexing...can you give us a name?

It's very common in many industries for competing companys to sell components and materials from each other. I know it don't make sense but it's just the way it is.

Hornady bullets have shown up in Remington cases for a long time. Sierra and Nosler and Swift bullets show up in Federal ammo even though Federal is a sister company to Speer.

Federal cases was used by Estate prior to the takeover of estate making them a sister company with Federal.

Hornady is not producing loaded ammo for Remington. However, Big Green uses the V-Max in it's premier Varmint ammo and the new bonded core polymer tipped bullet in it's Premier Accutip Ammo. Look for a 150 gr. Accutip load later in 2004 for the 7MM Ultra Mag.
