What Are Steel Munitions Baskets?

Steel munitions are durable containers for storing, transporting, and washing or cleaning ammunition throughout processing. With the right munitions baskets, gun manufacturers can reduce or entirely eliminate the risk of product defects. You can also speed up the process for other stages of gun and ammunition manufacturing.

Steel munitions baskets come in a wide variety of styles and designs to best aid different applications. Steel gives them long-lasting durability. Because the metal is also versatile, you can select baskets with or without handles, with stackable designs, and with lids.heat-treat-stainless-steel-barrel-basket-gun-manufacturing
