Shadow Fire Cartridges, LLC

About our new hand loaded cartridges . . .



Starting with new brass, all cases are visually checked for grit, packaging or brass chips then the cases are trimmed and deburred to the recommended length to ensure proper chambering and uniform crimp on all rounds.


The cases are fed into the loading press that sizes the case. This sizing forms the metal case to standard dimensions. The case must be within 0.001 inch for it to function correctly.


The primer is then pressed into the case primer hole flush with the base. The primer must be flush or the cartridge will not feed properly in the magazine, causing a “jam.” At the same time, the mouth of the case is slightly expanded, in preparation for receiving the bullet.


The case is “charged,” with the correct amount of propellant. This step is of utmost importance, for miscalculation or double charging could be disastrous.


The bullet is firmly seated into the open end of the case. Then the bullet is crimped into the case to give the correct overall length of the cartridge. The crimp reduces the diameter of the open end of the case and captures the bullet tightly, sealing the assembly together so moisture cannot invade the powder.


After assembly, the finished cartridges are cleaned and packaged, 50 to a box, and prepared for sale to the shooter.


We shoot 10% of each lot as part of our quality control program and process.

Closing Thoughts . . .

“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and link the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” Samuel Adams, 1865


. . . that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

. . . with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.                                                    Declaration of Independence, 4th July 1776 


Save the future by remembering our history.
