Introduction to Belmont Ammunition

Belmont Ammunition was first established in 1971 (then known as Belmont Firearms) and was situated in Lower Hutt. The concept of the business in those days was to import high quality firearms and ammunition for the competitive shooter.

Since those early times Belmont has grown and is now  involved in the importation, manufacture and selling of ammunition and firearms for both domestic and overseas markets.

The business moved to Wanganui in 1987 and has almost 1700 square metres of production and warehouse facilities.

At Belmont we do more than just manufacture, import and market ammunition. The management and staff who are responsible for all development, manufacture, quality control and sales, personally test the products. Our dedicated team continuously put theory into practice with many years vast experience including New Zealand representative target shooting.

Range testing is carried out by Belmont staff at an indoor test facility. The rifles used are an assortment of standard hunting rifles. Accuracy and consistency obtained under these conditions ensures suitability of our products in all NZ conditions and often results in customers obtaining results well beyond expectation.

Cartridges are checked for quality before and during manufacture, then re-examined when each cartridge is individually hand packed by members of the Quality Control team. Effectively each cartridge is examined many times during manufacture.

Belmont Ammunition remains committed to the supply and production of quality ammunition that exceeds the expectations of the purchaser
