Factory tour: Going behind the scenes at Sellier & Bellot (VIDEO)

Founded in 1825 in what is now the Czech Republic, Sellier & Bellot has become a household name in small arms cartridges. In the above video, Larry Vickers meets up with Mike Fisher of S&B to take a look at the company’s state-of-the-art facility outside of Prague in Vlašim where they make 3 million rounds every day in as many as 71 different calibers.

The tour is interesting as it shows the process from soup-to-nuts starting with rolls of brass and basic components to packed rounds. They export about 90 percent of their production outside of the country with a bunch of it headed to the U.S.

They even have a game preserve as part of the factory property — complete with a herd of red stag. Below are some more detail from the factory if you are curious.
