Manufacturing Metallic Cartridges

Manufacture—Sheet metal of the required thickness, from .025 inch to .09 inch, is used for the various kinds of cartridges. This is fed to a double acting die and punch, which cuts out a disk and forms it into a cylindrical cup at one operation. The cup is reduced to a cylinder of the required length in from four to six operations by dies and punches, and is called drawing or reducing. The cylindrical shell is trimmed to a standard length in a machine called the case-trimmer. After washing, the shells or cases have a flange formed at the closed end by pressure in a special machine called the header.

The headed case is tapered to a standard size. The open end is made cylindrical for the length the bullet enters it, so as to enclose the latter snugly; and if it be inside-primed, like the present service cup-anvil cartridge, the anvil is inserted and fastened at the same time by crimping the case around its edge.
