First Issue of Cartridge

Cartridge: The Official Journal Of Peterson Cartridge

2022 was a big year for us at Peterson Cartridge. Our production numbers were higher than ever. We launched several new calibers, including completing offerings in the Weatherby and Nosler Families. As we move into 2023 you'll notice we've made some more changes including this now-quarterly journal that will replace our general newsletter.

Down Time

If you're anything like me, and your life revolves around hunting, the months of June, July, and August are a painful time of year. Unless I can convince my wife that I NEED to sneak out west on a spring bear hunt or that I absolutely HAVE to travel to Africa or Australia on safari, my hunting seasons are over until the fall. This simply does not work for me.

Peterson Cartridge Calibers

Trying to Find Ammo or Components in a Shortage

It is perhaps one of the most frustrating obstacles a hunter or shooter ever has to deal with. Going into a sporting goods store in the current market and attempting to buy powder, bullets, brass, or primers will have you shaking your head in disgust.
