We took a tour at the hornady factory on our way to colorado. It was very nice to see how things are made and where they are packaged. Everyone was very nice and answered all of our questions. I would go back!

Interesting tour! When you see what goes into the manufacturing of bullets, it really is amazing that boxes do not cost more! This plant employs 300+! They engineer and repair all their own equipment. Tour is 30 minutes. Every non-hunting wife should take this tour.
