Welcome to Garrett Cartridges of Texas

Friends, After 26-years of running Garrett Cartridges, Inc., it is time for me to step back and hand the business over to another. GCI is now in the capable hands of Ashley Emerson of Texas. I have known Ashley for two decades now, and am very pleased that he will be at the helm of GCI as it moves into the future. He will continue to offer the same loads that GCI has become known for, so there will be no interruption in selection or quality for those demanding the finest in 44 Magnum and 45-70 ammunition.

It has been the privilege of a lifetime running GCI, and I thank you all for your support and confidence in Garrett ammunition products.

Since taking the helm of Garrett Cartridges over 2½ years ago we have continued on with the same integrity and quality that Randy Garrett maintained for over 20 years. Once we completed the company transition my first goal was to add to the line additional 45-70 loads but more importantly 45 and 454 loads. We have added the 45-70 Springfield load which has been a success and will soon add a 45-70 540gr Defender load. As for the 45 and 454, well the journey to achieve this goal has taken much, longer then anticipated. Finally, at last, I can report that we have the 45 and 454 loads on the shelf and ready to ship. As it was for Randy it is for me. This is not “just business”, it’s personal, I live and breathe this stuff and if I end up sitting across a campfire from you I will be able to look you in the eye knowing I have built this ammo the best I know how.

Thank you for your orders.


Have gun, will travel.
