Much has happened at Kent Cartridge from our beginning in 1996 as a small group of sportsmen discussing the future of shotgunning to the innovative, international cartridge company we are today.

Our goal was simple, develop a non-toxic shotshell that would equal, and possibly exceed, the performance of high quality lead waterfowl loads. We not only accomplished this, we surpassed even our expectations.

In 1997, Kent purchased the Activ Cartridge factory in Kearneysville, West Virginia. This gave Kent a home base in the heart of wild and wonderful West Virginia. During the spring and fall, you can find Kent employees wandering the forests and fields around the plant hunting with Kent products. In 1998 Kent expanded to Europe with the acquisition of the Gamebore Cartridge Company in Hull, England.

The Kent-Gamebore Corporation was then formed and now carries on business throughout North America and around the world.


Performance, Innovation and Excellence

Constantly evolving and leading with proven performance and innovation, Kent products continue to set the benchmark. Tungsten Matrix remains the only true alternative to lead and the choice for hunters demanding the very best. Fasteel has established a reputation among steel shotshells that is unrivalled and well deserved as it has rewritten the record-books for speed and performance. Upland hunters and Turkey hunters are well covered with Kents Ultimate Upland, Upland Fasteel and Upland Tungsten Matrix shotshells. Not to be forgotten is Kent-Gamebores venerable target loads and our Protrial training blanks.
