Based in Trustach, just outside Banchory in Aberdeenshire, Trustach Shooting Supplies was established by Julian McHardy in 2016.

Previously known as Cairngorm Sporting Supplies and Caledonian Cartridge Company – we are based in Royal Deeside in the heart of Aberdeenshire and have been manufacturing and distributing shotgun cartridges to customers throughout the UK for over 30 years.

Royal Warrant

In 2017 we were delighted to announce that we had been awarded a Royal Warrant to Her Majesty The Queen for supplying shooting accessories and ammunition – One of only four Royal Warrants presented in Scotland that year.

Julian McHardy, Director at Trustach Shooting Supplies said “We are honoured to have been awarded this Royal Warrant. It demonstrates a level of quality of product and service of which I am very proud to be part of. This is a major vote of confidence in a Scottish business and we look forward to being of service to shooting sportsmen and women and the country pursuits industry for many years to come.”

We are the UK’s sole distributor for Caledonian Cartridges, a brand with which we have been associated for over 15 years. Distilled from years of traditional know how, using only the highest quality components, the Caledonian Cartridge range has an enviable reputation gained on some of the finest shooting estates in Scotland.

The cartridge of choice for many famous and elite shots, it’s no surprise that Caledonian Cartridges can be relied on to deliver a highly effective and consistent shooting experience, whatever the nature of your sporting passion.
