Default Tour of the CCI factory, .22LR (video)

I found these two videos about .22LR ammo particularly educational and interesting.

Part one, the manufacturing process:

Part two, quality control and testing:

I've seen a lot of "How Do They Make That" videos but not that one.
Enjoyable, thanks for posting.

Like said.....
All kinds of progressive manufacturing processes are interesting to watch. Whether it is ammo or frying pans.
I've done a lot of work making parts and pieces that make different processes work. Rarely got to see the whole process in action.
Thanks

Back when I lived in Moscow, I would occasionally drive down to Lewiston to shop at the Speer outlet. There you bought bullets like penny candy, taking them home in paper bags. Miss that.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
At least things seem to be coming back onto the shelves again.
