If you are not getting the high demand bonus even when selling in sessions with lots of players, that is a bug, open a ticket with R* support & report it. You are doing the Far sales aren't you? Like if your warehouse is in Blaine or paleto, you are selling in los Santos & vice versa? High demand is only for far sales if I remember right. Not to mention, selling in the next county makes you a lot more money.
Beyond that I don't see how you can't be making a profit.
Five bars of coke sells for $420,000 - Meth for $357,000
I understand that it's maybe a little over 10 supply bars to make 5 bars of stock for those businesses. So minus 'roughly' 150K of supplies, that would mean a profit of around 270k for coke & 207k for Meth
Obviously there are staff costs. You can dodge em and reduce the chances of raids by disbanding your MC whenever your not buying or stealing supplies, selling, or doing contracts.
While your waiting for product to be made you can do whatever, do biker contracts, missions etc.
There are players on here who have made tens, or even 100+ million from their biker businesses. If you have the upgrades, even if you buy all supplies, the coke & meth will make a profit.
The thing about gunrunning and biker business is that it's mostly passive. It allows you to go off and do other stuff while product is being made.
With other stuff like crates or cars, you need to be there, stealing the crates, stealing the cars, building up your crates for a big sale. Or with cars, steal a car, sell the car, steal another car, sell the car etc etc. If you aren't actively engaged in the work, your not making money.
Its a matter of preference.
