Gunwerks is now manufacturing brass, not sure what cartridges there making because the firewall at work won't let me open the website. Probably not cheap but probably pretty good brass.

Are they making it themselves, or having someone make it for them? There are many brass manufactures that will make a custom head stamp for you to stamp anything you want on the case head. I doubt they are mfg it themselves.

We load our own Gunwerks ammunition with the same ammo because we know it meets our high standards where everything else falls short.

​Specifications:

Extreme consistency piece to piece and lot to lot
Consistent weight & volume to reduce velocity spreads
Minimal neck runout for superior precision

Exactly! They can help engineer it, but they are not making it. I have a company I use for some brass that I can head stamp CRD for Custom Reloads of Dallas, or anything that will fit on it if I want. I have to pay about $500-$800 for the tool head set up, and then this company makes the brass for me. Yes, it's really good brass and tight tolerances. I've tested it. It's good brass. But GunWerks is in the rifle, scope and ammo business. They don't make their own brass.
