When we set out to develop the tooling to manufacture brass rifle casings in the two popular CheyTac calibers (.408 and .375) we set a number of goals for ourselves.

Bench-rest shooters: “You’re gonna love this box.”
Recently one of our employees was at the range and other shooters began to gather around his bench. Of course he presumed it was because of his prowess as a marksman. But instead of asking for his autograph or his expert advice, they asked him, “Where did you get that box?!”
Recently our ballistician had some extra time in his schedule, and asked what he should work on next. We said, “Just for the heck of it, see how many times you can fire our .308s before you experience failure.” So that’s what he set out to do.
We make some of the best brass available today.
