Larry Vickers Tours the Sellier & Bellot Ammunition Factory

Sellier & Bellot (S&B) is one of the oldest ammunition manufacturers in the world and was founded in 1825. S&B has grown dramatically since then and was acquired by the Brazilian firm of
Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC) in 2009. Americans will know CBC better as “MagTech”. Not to go too far off topic, it’s interesting to note that CBC also owns the German ammunition maker Metallwerk Elisenhütte GmbH (MEN) also.

S&B is located in the town of Vlašim, not far from Prague in the Czech Republic. The factory is on 385 acres, including a game preserve they oversee, and they are the largest employer there.

Larry Vickers, of Vickers Tactical, toured the factory and had a chance to discuss their business model with them. S&B is producing about 3 million rounds per day of pistol and rifle ammunition in 71 calibers and about 70% are exported. The two dominant calibers are 9×19 and 5.56×45 not surprisingly. Larry commented that he sees this dominance everywhere.
