While I knew that S&B made good ammo, I didn’t imagine they were putting out 3 million rounds per day. Interesting video

Good to know. I have a sleeve of them. Usually, I use CCI, but I'll throw the S&B's in the mix.

I wasn’t aware that S&B made them in-house.

I posted in the CZ section where Larry also tested out a Bren 2 while at S&B. I'll also have to check out this video later on since I'm interested in ammunition.

I caught that video last night surfing youtube on the Roku box

while a decent video I felt it could have shown forming up center fire brass to be more interesting

YMMV

S&B used to sell the 00 buck for $55 for 200. I shot a lot of it in the combat shotgun matches and it was great ammo. When the ammo crunch hit it got way more expensive.

About sums up my thoughts too...

The one that Tim at MAC did on the MKE plant in Turkey (on ZQI ammo) was just about perfect...

Very cool! have been reloading for my 8 mm Mauser and 5.56 AR and alot of my brass is S&B. Good stuff. Just found 3 boxes of new/old stock 8mm I bought in Prescott Az yrs ago at J&G..can't wait to send it down range. They tend to load it hotter than American 8mm.
