Frankford Arsenal Reloading Tools and Supplies Catalog Index
There are few veteran reloaders who are not familiar with the famous initials "FA" on military .30-06 Springfield brass - and for good reason. The original Frankford Arsenal Army Ammunition Plant was constructed between 1816 and 1830. In addition to massive small arms ammunition production, Frankford Arsenal was responsible for almost all of the research and development and manufacture of U.S. Army field reloading equipment for the .45-70 Government, 50/70, 30/40 Krag and .30-06 Springfield - beginning in the 1880's. Today, Battenfeld carries on that same spirit through our branded Frankford Arsenal reloading products. By offering well-designed and quality products, they have re-established Frankford Arsenal as one of the world's leading brands of metallic reloading equipment in hopes of preserving this famous name.
