CCI (Cascade Cartridge Inc.), based in Lewiston, Idaho, manufactures rimfire ammunition, centerfire handgun ammunition, and primers for reloaders and industrial power loads. CCI produced the first Mini-Mag rimfire ammunition in 1963, and in 1975 developed the Stinger, a high velocity .22 Long Rifle product. Today, CCI makes a wide range of rimfire and snake shot ammunition.[1]

CCI was founded by Dick Speer (brother of Vernon Speer, who founded Speer Bullets) in the early 1950s. As of February 2015, it was a subsidiary of Vista Outdoor, a spinoff of Alliant Techsystems.[2] As of the same date, CCI employed about 1100 people.[3]
