    If I knew someone who worked at CCI they'd automatically be my best friend.

    I was amazed at how much manual work is still done, and how much lead they would go through in one day, which would make a very large number of bullets, yet STILL not be enough to meet demand in the US and their panic buying

    Plus all the other ammo manufacturers in the US and Europe.
    Reckon after 200+ years, 22LR is still the most popular round in the world - beats even the 'wastage' of centrefire, in the conflicts around the world.

    you will find that lead is now a major commodity and the chinese are buying every single kilo they can, no its not for ammo!

    allot of chinese have been using 2 stroke scooters and bikes to get to and from work causing massive oil based pollution in the central cities, the answer they have chosen is to use electric powered bikes using lead acid batteries. of course this only means that the pollution is used elsewhere to generate electric to charge the batteries but hell !! who says logic makes any sense

    Sorry to hijack this thread - have watched the video, and truly impressed by the 'relatively' efficient method of 22LR production.
    @gonetropo - in support of part of your post.
    The pollution generated elsewhere, seems to be conveniently forgotten by proponents of all-electric vehicles. Power generation, mining of rare earths, downstream processing of same, shipping to manufacturers plants, production waste at vehicle makers plants among others.
    So are electric-only vehicles a valid option to hybrid petro-electric systems, hydrogen based power packs, and other forms of power for motor vehicles?
    I don't know, but have yet to be firmly convinced that electric, solar powered or hybridised power systems aren't creating more pollution than the older, well developed but finite resourced hydrocarbon engines, during the production processes for the 'new' technologies.
    Stanley Steamer anyone?

    lithium mining is now a major part of east europe, the processing is mainly done in china before the final assembly is done in japan.
    electric is "green" : yeah right

    Having recently moved from a city that had two stroke scooters as the main form of transport(Taipei) to a city that is all about electric scooters(Shanghai) I would like to point out that it's not really just about the overall amount of pollution, it's where that pollution is in relation to your population and the noise difference. I much prefer 100 electric scooters taking of from the lights outside my building every change to the 100 2stroke ones I used to have.
    Also I don't feel sick riding my bike on Chinese streets like I did on Taiwanese streets, even though the air in China is officially much worse it's actually vastly better on the road.

    So yea, electric vehicles are not what some make them out to be-but they are still a massive steep in a positive direction.
