How they make .22 rim-fire

I was surprises at how much hand labor is involved.

With the amount of .22 rimfire they can produce daily with those machines, and you throw in Federal, Remington, Winchester, and all of the foreign makers, it really makes you wonder WHY dealers could not get deliveries for the better part of two years, from anyone?

And yes, I was working retail at that time, and there were no answers forthcoming from said makers… greed to drive up the prices on the wholesale end was our rationale.
