Montana is home to more than 230 federally licensed commercial ammunition manufacturers. The businesses range wildly in scale from Stevensville’s HSM Ammunition to boutique manufacturers of hard to find cartridges.
There are also a number of options available for hunters who want the accuracy of handloaded ammunition at a price up to 30% cheaper than the local big box store without loading the rounds themselves.
Browns Ammo Service in Shepherd has loaded millions of rounds since Richard brown started loading commercially in the late 1980s, according to the Billings Gazette.
Brown has the capability to load 120 different calibers but his most popular rounds are common pistol and rifle calibers. Brown told the Gazette is top sellers are .223 Remington, .308 Winchester, .45 ACP and 9mm Luger. The recently popular 6.5 Creedmoor has cracked the top five in the last year as well.
