H&N Sport Acquires British Pellet Brand Prometheus

Prometheus-HN tn+i

Pax Guns’ UK pellet-manufacturing plant – which produced pellets like Prometheus and Dynamic to name but a few – has been acquired by mighty German ammo maker, H&N Sport…

Renowned German pellet manufacturer H&N Sport has announced its acquisition of the airgun pellet line of Pax Guns – Prometheus Pellets.

As featured in the December 2014 edition of Airgun Shooter magazine, Pax Guns was founded by Hugh Earl – the inventor and ballistician behind the award-winning, hi-tech range of pellets manufactured from the manufacturing plant in north London. The range includes the original Prometheus non-lead brand right through to the very advanced Defiant and Piledriver brands.

A spokesperson for H&N Sport said: “Pax Guns is a premium pellet manufacturer with some outstanding pellets for hunting, field target and leisure shooting. We are very happy to expand our product line with some of the finest pellets in the market and we are proud to continue Hugh’s great legacy.

H&N Sport told Airgun Shooter that all the pellet-making plant in London will be transferred to Germany and installed in H&N Sport’s new, purpose-built premises in Hann Münden over the next few weeks.

And it’s expected that H&N Sport will be presenting their new pellets in the spring of 2015, to arrive in gun shops around April time. The shooting trade will get a first look at America’s trade-only SHOT Show in January, and then the IWA trade show in Germany in mid-March.
