    Wait. Did I read this right? $16 Million, not for ammo, but to “model” the ammo supply chain?? And how long is that “model” good for, before overcome by events?? How about just drop some contracts for ammo, and have the IG write up a report on the bottlenecks that are identified? If I was a cynic, I’d say someone inside the Beltway is making the right campaign contributions.
