Russians tended to stockpile shells in fortresses such as Novogeorgievsk and Kovno where Germans captured 3000 guns and 2m shells. Russian War Council sought to save money, did not fill requests from the army for more shells. Starting in 1915, War Council began to place large orders from munitions from America, and from the British Vickers company, and Vickers set up an Anglo-Russian comany, RAOAZ, to make guns in Tsaritsyn, but all this would take time and only 10% of American munitions reached Russia in 1915. The Trans-Siberian RR from Valdivoskok could only send 280 railroad waggons per day. The Archangel port was closed 5 months every winter. A railroad to the port of Murmansk was partly open in 1917, but would not be finished until 1923. American suppliers of boots mailed them to Russia, 3 boots per parcel. More impt than the shell shortage was the crisis of authority in the Russian Army, the lack of officers (60,000 casualties by July 1915 wiped out the officer corps of 1914) and the lack of NCOs (2 per company when Germany had 12 per company), the growth of revolutionary behavior among the soldiers.

These attitudes were reinforced by the fact that the United States had
made a substantial investment in the Allied war effort. As the war progressed
it became apparent that the British blockade would permit American trade to be
carried on only with the Allies. Before long, American factories and farmers
were producing weapons and food solely for Great Britain and France. Industry
expanded and began to enjoy a prosperity dependent on continued Allied
purchases. Between 1914 and 1916 American exports to the Allies quadrupled.
Allied bonds totaling about $1.5 billion were sold in the United States in
1915 and 1916. It was quite apparent to the Germans that there was little
neutrality on the economic front in the United States.

In the course of war it turned out that the economy of tsarist Russia could not satisfy demands it was front in the armament and the ammunition. Thus, for the waging of war were necessary 17 mln. rifles, whereas industry could give not more than 37% this need.

Varje månad tillkom det 350 000 soldater men man kunde bara förse 200 000 med gevär, det saknades alltså 150 000 gevär.
Låter mycket tycker jag men jag kan inte bedöma om det är rimligt eller ej.
