After around 6 months of being out of stock, Freedom’s 325gr FMJ .50AE from their Big Grains line is finally back in stock, and the price has gone down to $20.40 per box of 20rds, or $1.02 per rd. This is the best price on the internet for this caliber (for any load type) at the moment by over 0.10 cents per rd, and Freedom also has a promo going where any order over $99 is only 0.05 cents shipping. So 100rds of that for $102.00 only costs $102.05 shipped. Relatively very good price for .50AE. I’m hoping they are also doing a custom headstamp for it now, but that is doubtful.
Also saw this full factory tour video recently which is great for going over their whole process. I see they are using some Ammoload machines, and they also have an interesting high-speed photo setup to spot-check primer & bullet seating:
They’re not averse to having a little fun at Freedom where at the 25:20 mark in the video above they load a baby into a shipment with some ammo… yes really.
Here is the high-speed photo scanner to check primers, seating and O.A.L.:
