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. Tungsten Matrix is the only non-toxic shotshell pellet that is specifically designed to match the physical and ballistic properties of premium quality lead shot. Unlike other non-toxic alternatives, Tungsten Matrix is uniform in size and density, and responds to all choke constrictions. Tungsten Matrix is not limited like steel and other non-toxics because of its malleable, lead-like properties. This also means Tungsten Matrix is safe for use in older nitro-proofed or high grade fixed choke barrels.
