The explanation is fairly plausible. I don't think manufacturers have been on a 9-5 leisurly pace in a long, long time. And I don't remember 5.56 being "dirt cheap" amytime in the last few years, but I guess he's talking in relative terms. I think the author is missing another factor. Election and Newtown definitely. Take that and add the Christmas season to it and it was all over.
So now I sit on what I amassed last summer before all of this. :(
