I thought I had posed this issue before in the forum, but can’t find it anywhere now. I was noticing again today that Corbon seems to have virtually nothing available on their store website, and their retail distribution has dwindled down to a few scraps scattered around here & there. Corbon was, for a time a fairly relevant player in ammo sales, and became a household name among shooters through the 90’s and 2000’s. The production of Glaser Safety Slugs and Pow’Rball ammo seems to have ceased a few years ago just after having switched to boxed packaging as opposed to the hanging plastic blister packs.
On their website (shopcorbon) now they offer a smattering of loads, only 17 different calibers, with a few oddballs available such as 6.5x284 Norma, .338 Norma Mag, and 6x45mm. On the price-aggregator website Ammoseek.com a search for handgun calibers in general by Corbon returns only a page and a half- mostly .40S&W, and .45acp, with no 9mm results. By comparison, a similarly sized company like Double Tap returns six pages of results for anything & everything pistol caliber.
From this I surmise that they are going out of business. Their last gasp seems to have been the “MPR” (Multi Purpose Rifle) ballistic tip ammo which came in .308 and 30-06 and which came out in early 2015. Their last splash in pistol calibers was the very short-lived “Urban Response” load in 9mm, which seemed to get no distribution, and was only available from their website store for less than a year back around 2014 (it’s just a black-tipped Pow’Rball load). When I try to contact them they either never answer their listed phone number, or don’t return emails. Their online store works though, so somebody is boxing stuff up and processing sales.
