Here's a short video, showing CCI's rimfire operation in Idaho -

There is quite a bit to it.

The problem with using steel instead of brass is that it is tougher to deform, so would probably have trouble with primer ignition at the rim.

Yes, inserting the wet pellet of primer compound and evenly distributing it around the rim is one of the "arts" of the process.
