GH&G is running with an unverified rumor that Remington will be releasing a line of amm0 specifically designed for use in silencers. Which might help to explain the shortage of subsonic .300 BLK ammo recently, if they’re about to re-brand the whole lot. Anyway, the move makes sense for a company that sees AAC’s cans as the perfect up-sell from their stock firearms, but that’s where they run headlong into an issue: AAC hasn’t actually produced anything “new” in years . . .
To add a little more gossip to the mix, our sources say that after the sacking of AAC’s founder, Kevin Brittingham, Freedom Group killed the company’s entire R&D division, meaning they have no new products in the works. It’s a smart business move – in a Bushmaster/Marlin kinda way – if you’re a corporate overlord looking to turn a quick profit. But with new materials and construction processes being developed these days, it’s also a good recipe for AAC to lose its hold as the leader in silencer sales.
