When most people think of the history of firearms, they think of the weapons themselves. But a gun is useless without its ammunition, which has a long and storied history in the United States and beyond.

While the use of gunpowder dates back to early tenth-century China, ammo in the U.S. started with the Springfield Armory – the primary arsenal during the American Revolutionary War, scouted and approved by George Washington himself in 1777. This government armory, and others throughout the 19th century, became a hub for invention and development. But what about commercial ammunition brands?

In 1816, Eliaphalet Remington founded what is now the oldest manufacturer of firearms in the United States. What began as a business smithing rifle barrels, transformed into an iconic gun brand that is the only company in the nation to produce both firearms and ammunition domestically. It is also the largest producer of rifles and shotguns in the United States, as well as the largest developer and adopter of cartridges in the world.

While there are plenty of other American-made brands like Hornady, Federal and Winchester – there are also international ammunition manufacturers that have been arming people for centuries. Italy’s Giulio Fiocchi Enterprise began manufacturing sporting ammo in 1877, and is now known for their world-class shotgun ammunition and NATO specification ammo for military use. Tula was started in Russia around the same time. In 1880, Tsar Alexander II approved its opening with a contract for the first seven years. It’s now known for its quality ammunition and economical prices. Other ammo companies around the world include Wolf in Russia, Magtech in Brazil and Sellier & Bellot in Prague.

Explore the brands we offer, and learn how they have helped shape the history of ammunition for centuries. From American-made ammo to international bullet brands, our extensive list of ammo options features something for every kind of shooter.
