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. Whether you hunt the open plains of the United States, in Europe or Britain, whether the birds are pheasant, chukkar, bobwhites, grouse or woodcock… Kent’s Upland range of products outperforms. They have to: upland hunting is a demanding and challenging experience. With “drop dead” performance and consistency from the venerable Upland Fasteel, a day in the field means a bird in the hand.
