These shells are loaded in the USA, with the projectiles themselves being made in Brenneke's home country of Germany. Brenneke was founded in 1895 in Leipzig, Germany and survived two world wars to be re-founded in West Berlin in 1945 by the same man who started the company, Wilhelm Brenneke. Today, the company produces over 10 million shells annually and operates under the direction of Brenneke's great grandson, Peter Mank. Their products have become so popular in Europe that slugs are often referred to there as "Brennekes."
