    I hope PRIME breaks it off in their ass. I'm no businessman but this sounds to be beyond horsecrap.

    Well that sucks. Im not a prime customer but it seems like they got the shaft- pretty much like anybody that uses norma products. Cant imagine a business model that 100% relies on one company to make your product from raw materials to packaged product. Guess thats why im not a rich businessman

    You care to fill us in on the rest? This is bad for one of our small industry’s companies

    No, how would I know, I just stated that the vid shared an opposing sides synopsis of the situation. If it makes it to court, we will all find out.
    IMO, if Prime started a business to sell only ammo made by RAUG, well, they needed a rock solid agreement. If RAUG broke said deal, then they will suffer the backlash.
    If you like a Charmin mega roll, it never hurts to have a Northern quilted in the vanity just in case.

    Exactly right. Never put all your eggs in one basket- especially if said basket is a competitor of your business!!!

    Wonder if they’d try that with Weatherby.

    Right, but in this case, far from a competitor as I know it.
    I cannot be the only one, but it surfaced right away Prime ammo used Norma brass, owned by RAUG. A moron could decipher that a rd costing 1.24 was not using 1.00 brass, and a 35 cent bullet, but did nothing to squelch the rumor.
    Make your name as a stand up company.
    You know what, screw Prime, I have neve bought their ammo, but do use Norma brass.
    I had a friend who bought 6.5 creed ammo, lot to lot sucked, it surfaced in the primer pockets prepping brass, showed down range too. It is one thing to buy enough brass for a rifle, buying enough ammo takes coin, make your shit right.

    I don’t need anything. You inferred that you knew the prime is only telling half the story.

    I do not know jack shit, I watched a vid of a guy making a claim w/o detail. And like you referred to, "the rest of the story" will surface.
    If some kid gets injured on one of your rides, I am not gong to be the one to crucify you immediately, even though the press may. The same post is on SH if you need drama.

    I think you guys need to go back and listen to that video again. Many bizarre statements are made. For example, at the very outset why does he state that Ruag “refused to negotiate a fair price” for Prime?? What does this have to do with the question at hand? Is Prime in financial trouble and needs to sell?

    Contrary to BS folklore, large companies don’t sue in Delaware Chancery court based on frivolous claims! Prime must not be totally honest here. If there was something to what Prime is saying wouldn’t you think he would have stated Prime is suing Ruag to have their contract enforced?? Not one whiff of a Prime lawsuit. Fake news!

    If a lawsuit is imminent, why would you go public like a little bitch, other than to garner chickenshit support from supporters who are clueless?

    So under every one of those counts citizens demand in excess of one million dollars- is that for each count or the same million demanded for all? Im sure not a lawyer so that was hard to read. Halfway thru it looked like citizens never paid their bills then it took a turn where ruag was definitely screwing them over. Whats the accurate shooter legal team say?
