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.

Free, Don't know about morning but I went in to office at 12 and they said they run every half hour from 130 on. Check with them.
