A long time major player in ultra-quality and specialized American made ammunition may be a company you have never heard of? So who are these guys anyway?

Hunting Shack Munitions

Hunting Shack Munitions

Stevensville, MT --(  Hunting Shack Munitions, Inc. (HSM) is not a little outfit with a batch of hand operated presses.

HSM Ammunition is a major player with 45 highly-experienced employees turning out 500,000+ rounds of high-power rifle and pistol ammunition a day!

In business since 1968 HSM started primarily by supporting law enforcement with range and duty ammunition. The company then quickly moved into the manufacture of restricted special purpose ammunition for certain law enforcement and federal organizations.

Over the last 20-years while continuing to service special units with unique ammunition HSM has moved more into the commercial market with a truly huge variety of ammunition; would you believe some 950 loads over 120 calibers?

HSM markets exclusively through 2,100 retailers which include Cabelas, Sportsman’s Warehouse and major catalog outlets as Midway USA and Sportsman’s Guide.

One unique commercial line of hunting ammunition HSM produces is their Trophy Gold brand.Trophy Gold is exclusively loaded with famed Berger Bullets. For many years Berger Bullets has been producing incredibly accurate bullets primarily used by high-level competitors.

HSM in collaboration with Berger Bullets developed their Trophy Gold line of ballistic efficient very low drag (VLD) match grade accurate ammunition for extended range hunting. The Trophy Gold VLD rounds are specifically designed to deliver 100 percent of their energy inside the animal for quick kills at long range reduced velocities and yet to do so without destroying meat at closer ranges either; a neat trick!

HSM Ammunition, a company you will hear much more of in the future.

    1. I used to buy HSM reloaded ammunition at Turner’s Outdoorsman in Pasadena about 15 years ago, haven’t seen that brand around in years.

      Wish I’d seen this yesterday. I just got back from taking 2 of my Grandchildren back to DFW and met my Daughter and Son-in-Law at Cabelas. Saw the HSM ammo (.223/5.56mm) on the shelf, opened the box and saw WCC headstamps, and put it back. These boxes DID NOT HAVE RE-MANUFACTURED on them. Different loads from HSM were marked RE-MANUFACTURED. BTW, I liked the price on the RE-MAN, but I do not buy ammo I have a question about, and Cabelas was packed at that time. I did buy some different 5.56 at a reasonable price. About the only ammo not in stock was .22LR and 9mm that was not Top Dollar duty ammo.

    3. INFO ONLY. HSM also sells by the name BVAC which stands for Bitterroot Valley Ammunition Co. They sell new ammo and reloads and both boxes are clearly marked. Been using it for years and no complaints.

      HSM, Inc. and BVAC are two seperate companies not to be confused with each other. They are however in the same town.
