Freedom Munitions Rifle Case Manufacturing Facility Now In Production

New .223 Remington Cases Ready for Loading

Freedom Munitions is proud to announce their 10,000 sq ft facility dedicated to rifle ammunition case making is operational and producing Freedom’s own .223 Remington cases.

In the summer of 2022 Freedom Munitions announced the groundbreaking on this new building, now fully equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and highly trained operators to ensure utmost quality, tolerances and consistency. Freedom Munitions has been manufacturing cases for various pistol calibers for some time, while sourcing out rifle cases from well-respected manufacturers in order to load .223 Remington, 5.56 NATO, .308 Winchester and many other popular calibers.

“Research and development has been going on for some time while building the facility, but now the first lots of cases have been tested in live .223 with excellent results,” said Toby Thill, President of Freedom Munitions. “Now having the ability to produce our own rifle cases greatly alleviates issues with case shortages, bottlenecks and pricing shifts, allowing us to consistently provide rifle ammunition at fair pricing.”

Freedom Munitions loads many variations of .223 Remington ammunition from target and hunting, to professional match grade, with the 55 grain FMJ bullet from X-Treme Bullets being the most popular. Freedom Munitions is also equipped with its own ballistics lab and underground firing range for extensive testing on all calibers, ensuring accurate and reliable performance on these new cases. The new Freedom made cases feature the X-Treme Bullets headstamp, which is a brand of Freedom Munitions, LLC that specializes in components, primarily plated bullets.

The first 500,000 units out of the factory are available now in 223 55 grain FMJ, with more to come. This expansion is expected to open up 20-30 jobs in Lewiston, Idaho as more calibers start being processed.
