Amazing video, always wanted to know how it was made, now if they are making 4million rounds a day why have I not seen a box on the shelf in months?

Ammo manufacturing numbers are impressive. During WWII, Frankford Arsenal produced 1.5 million rounds of .30 caliber ammo a day. Of course that was more complex and required more time than making .22 rimfire.
