You Can't Find .22lr Ammo? Watch This Instead.

This video may have been posted here another time, but I've never seen it until today. It's kind of a virtual video tour of how CCI Stingers are made. Kind of fun to watch.

That was cool, have never seen how that worked before. Made me wish I could grab a pallet...or two.

Yes, I was kind of surprised at how little space 250,000 rounds filled. That would fit in the second bedroom quite nicely.

Guess we shouldn't take .22s for granted.
Lots of goings on to make them.
4 million made per day?
Where are they all going?
An alternate universe?

Yea really, 4 million per day? And that's only at CCI. How about the other 100 manufacturers? But there's none on the shelf at Wally World or my gun shop? Something doesn't smell right!

4 million per day? Those are some crazy sounding numbers right there.

Seems like I have no problem finding Stingers on the shelves in my area. But the number of 4M is quite a bit, and I'm sure other places like Federal/Winchester that sell a lot of their value packs are making tons more.

Wow, Thank you for posting that. I've always wondered how they make the little buggers.
