Beginning in 1996 as a small group of sportsmen discussing the future of shotgunning, Kent Cartridge is now an international cartridge company. 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. 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. The goal was simple, develop a non-toxic shotshell that would equal, and possibly exceed, the performance of high quality lead waterfowl loads. Constantly evolving and leading with proven performance and innovation, Kent products continue to set the benchmark.
Consistent patterning, balanced shot string, less recoil, superior penetration and retained energy. It all adds up to how your day ends. Kent waterfowl products are proven performers day in and day out. Since its introduction in 2011, Kent’s SilverSteel has proven its performance and knock-down power. Kent started with one of the best steel shotshells on the market today – Fasteel – and made it better. The same consistent delivery and speed and now better penetration with SilverSteel plated shot and high quality custom blended powders. Proven performance and power helps Kent SilverSteel raise the bar even higher.
