Since 1932, the Barnes name has been synonymous with accurate, quality bullets. Though it has changed names and ownership a few times, now landing under Remington Outdoor Company, it's still driven by the same passion for shooting and constant innovation that got it started way back when. Barnes runs an immaculate facility and takes great pride in making sure that every detail of every step of the process is up to par.


At Barnes, employees hand inspect, gage, and package the ammunition.
