This week I made it back to Sedalia, MO for a tour of Starline brass.

They purchase their brass in cup form and extrude it from there. Some
cases were different but most of the lots I saw go through about 25
steps some being inspections. They do mostly straight walled cases but
are tooling up for .308. I noticed some brass that had a Hornady head
stamp and asked the tour guide. He said they make brass for several
companies but didn't elaborate on which ones. Another interesting tour.
A very loud work place.

I bet that was an interesting tour.

After seeing how stuff is made, I sometimes wonder how they keep the price down.
