In this episode, I interview Bartt Brenton, owner of Brenton USA(www.brentonusa.com), manufacturer of premium AR hunting rifles. As an engineer, Bartt set out to build premium hunting rifles on the AR platform using the cartridges that best fit the AR-15 platform.
In this episode we discuss what led him to manufacture arms with the passage in Michigan of the ability to use certain straight walled cartridges in the southern part of the state verse the normal shotgun only. The 450 Bushmaster cartridge was the first mass cartridge in use and the start of Brenton arms.
As a lifelong hunter and reloader, Bartt wanted to build functional hunting rifles, using cartridges that took advantage of the Modern Sporting Rifle platform. If you have questions on the options available for Brenton USA firearms, please contact Brenton USA at 517-281-2571 or via the Contact Us page on their website.
