I know CA has a handful of firearms/parts manufacturers. I'm curious if there are any ammunition manufacturers in the state? I realize there are small businesses that sell reloads, but I'm looking for a company with the ability to produce their own custom brass for a cartridge design I'm interested in prototyping and I'm hoping to work with someone in CA, if possible.

There are many licensed ammo manufactures in CA. Most ammo manufacturers do not make there own brass though. There are a couple custom brass manufactures that I've seen at SHOT shows but, they are few and far between.

I was in the munitions manufacturing business for over 15 years. Company name was Minuteman Munitions. Produced in excess of 10 million rounds annually. I sold the business because of the this states continued increasing hostile business environment and declining customers etc. I'm sure you have a good idea. If you need a bounce board, maybe I can help.
