How is Ammunition Made?

The ammo making process has several steps and safety measures that must be taken. Brass must be cleaned, polished, and inspected before loading.

After the brass has been inspected, it is then run through our machine. First, a full length sizing of the brass is performed. Once the sizing is completed, the primer is seated in the primer pocket. Then an exact measurement of powder is added to the casting. To ensure this measurement of powder, each press is equipped with an alarmed powder check sensor to verify consistency. This system provides accuracy and safety in production.

The bullet is then seated into the casing at the precise length based on the weight and object of the projectile. Once it is seated, our press crimps the brass to hold the bullet in place. Once the cartridges are completed, every piece is re-inspected and placed in to the packaging.
