    It is very automated, I have been to a place near me that makes their own bullets and I found it to be an interesting but noisy operation.

    There are a few outfits that cast by hand still. Not all molds are adaptable to automated machines. Most size/lube on some form of Star w/ auto feed & air assist.

    To do any large amount it needs to automated or you will hit a production limit which limits your income.
