BRG ETHICS & VALUES
HISTORY OF BUFFALO CARTRIDGE CO.
The Buffalo Cartridge Company was founded in 2013 in Findlay, OH. At that time, firearms dealers and shooting ranges across the country were having a very difficult time finding enough ammunition to support their retail operations. BCC began manufacturing ammunition in response to this shortage and experienced tremendous growth during its first 4 years. The company quickly expanded its original target ammo lineup and grew a reputation for its high-quality product offerings including hunting, competition, and cowboy action ammunition.
Building upon a foundation of quality and trust, BCC built strong industry relationships that helped to carry the company through lean years from 2017 to 2020, when the company added importing to its business strategy. Through its international relationships with ammunition imports, BCC was introduced to Burgu Metal, and in 2021 Buffalo Cartridge was proud to become the exclusive U.S. importer and distributor of BRG handguns.
