    Ammo Mfr's?

    Just curious to see exactly how many ammo makers there are - in case I have forgotten some. I am thinking here of handgun/rifle mainly and not considering milsurp either. Do correct me or fill in gaps.

    I can think of right now - (probably will forget some - plus there is overlap with names - some being common to a single source). -


    Winchester (Olin Corp) - including WWB
    Remington - by name
    UMC (was Union Metallic Cartridge) but this is Rem yeah?
    Federal - included American Eagle (and Champion 22's).
    CCI - Blazer etc - numerous others
    Speer - Gold Dots etc
    Hornady
    MagTech
    PMC
    Sellier and Bellot (S&B)
    Fiocchi
    Eley - 22's
    Aguila - 22's
    Hirtenburger
    PCA
    Russian - Barnaul, Wolf etc

    Amerc - let's not waste time on that!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    What have I left out or got wrong?

    Oohh - thx Euc - I had quite forgotten about the specialist guys - I think there are one or two more too.

    I should have also included Lake City in first post - all 100's and 100's of acres of manufacturing facility. I know I will have left out quite a few.

    Norma
    Lapua
    Ultramax

    Remington does own UMC but they are still sold separately.

    Then there are the real specialty guys like MagSafe &
    Cor-Bon/Glaser/PowerBall (all one company) and then there is RBCD out of San Antonio, TX.

    Also I think Lazeroni makes it's own unique propietary ammo for it's unique calibers: 7mm WARBIRD or the like.

    Are you including companies like Georgia Arms, that manufacture ammo, or excluding them because they are assembling other manufacturer's parts?

    Great HG - thx. I always think of him for special brass etc but yeah - the complete ammo too. Excellent - helps fill more holes and finally we'll have pretty much nailed the lot.

    Useful reference.
