I'm classed as a manufacturer and have the proper licenses and insurance to back that up. I suppose I shouldn't post in the "what did you reload today" thread because I am a manufacturer. I make somwhere around a quarter of a million rounds a year. When I use new brass like I did for the 45-70 and .357 It's newly manufactured ammo just like the big boys. When I use used brass like I do for 9mm it's re-manufactured ammo. The production process is the same but the prep work is different.I used to do that but the liability regarding a single mistake has become too egregious to contemplate these days. And too my homeowners policy will not protect me. The last time I checked the cost of a specific insurance policy to protect me was too ridiculous to consider purchasing such a policy.
I've a good friend with a business as a firearms instructor, tactical and concealed carry. He has a small range and rental firearms, he provides ammunition. His insurance policy will not even allow re-loaded ammunition on his property. Which is a shame as he used to re-load a bunch of his ammunition before he started his business.
