Hornady Factory Tour – Grand Island, Nebraska

The Hornady Factory Tour of the Factory is really informative. It is an incredible factory tour through a manufacturing plant that makes 5 million bullets a day, Everyday, all year long. From little tiny bullets to 50 caliber bullets, they make them all and are very proud of their product.

When you enter the lobby it is like entering a natural history museum The trophy’s that these people have on their walls and standing on the floor are incredible. You name the animal and it is mounted here.

No photos were allowed while on the Hornady Factory Tour while inside the shop where they make the bullets. Photography is, however, allowed in the office where the mounted animals they have taken over the years are mounted. It is like going into a natural history museum however it’s in a workplace.

Incredible Factory Tour

The Hornady factory tour has an incredible feel due to all the machinery. The staff which numbers in the hundreds has an amazing number of processes in place all the time. There are people inspecting the bullets, both visually and by weight. There is lots of lead and it is in both solid and liquid form. The machines used to create the casings and the processes they use are well tested and create product that is top notch.

The gal who took me around the plant was very knowledgeable as she had worked there over 20 years and knew the place and everyone in it, at least that was the way it felt. Hornady employs hundreds of people and is a family-owned business. A most interesting factory tour no matter where you stand on their product. It’s always good to know what’s going on in the world. And if you want precision ammunition, this sure looks like the place to be.
