Factory Tours

Experience Hornady® for Yourself

Join us for a tour of our Grand Island, Nebraska factory, where our engineers and craftsmen have been producing award-winning bullets, ammunition, and reloading products for over half a century. You'll see how every part of our process from concept to packaging is done right here, often utilizing the original methods and equipment developed by our founder, J.W. Hornady.

Tour Tips

While our factory is a wonderful place to visit, it is important to remember that it is, after all, a factory. Please keep the following in mind in order to make the tour safe and enjoyable for all. Call 308-382-1390 with any questions or concerns.

  • NOTE: Visitors must be at least 13 years of age to tour our plant floor. Anyone under the age of 13 is able to tour our office area and view some pretty amazing wall mounts.
  • Space is limited. If you have a group of seven or more, (MAX 25) we require prior reservations so we can adequately accommodate your group. However, we appreciate reservations for groups of all sizes-- large or small.
  • Solid footwear with flat soles and good traction should be worn. In addition, there is quite a bit of walking and some stairs involved when you take the tour. In an effort to be able to evacuate quickly in case of an emergency, we cannot provide tours to our visitors who are unable to walk without assistance (i.e. wheelchairs, walkers, and canes).
  • Due to the nature of manufacturing, protective eyewear must be worn at all times in the factory. Bring your eyeglasses or borrow a pair of ours. We will also supply ear protection, which is mandatory for those under 19 years of age.
  • Although the tour does not include every aspect of our manufacturing process, you will still get a comprehensive overview of Hornady Manufacturing.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
