About Us

American Marksman, LLC is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska.  The company was founded by Thomas A.K. Schmidt (current CEO) in 2014. 

American Marksman contracts with Orbital ATK to purchase ammunition that is produced at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri.   Orbital ATK Small Caliber Systems is the largest manufacturer of small caliber ammunition for the U.S. Department of Defense.  During the last five years, the company manufactured more than eight billion rounds of small-caliber ammunition for the U.S. military and other customers.  Typically, the ammunition purchased fails to meet strict federal specifications and might normally be destroyed.  Our Lake City facility takes apart the rejected pieces and recycles them for use in the commercial market. 

American Marksman oversees the recycling, sales and distribution of military and non-military grade ammunition which includes components of projectiles, casings and smokeless powder.  We sell ammunition components to other manufacturers and assembled ammunition as a retailer and supplier to other companies.

American Marksman focuses on U.S. Military ammunition pull-down, including packing and shipping, expanding into specialty recycling, manufacturing/remanufacturing, advanced research and development technology systems, and green technology ammunition projectiles.

American Marksman has experienced great growth in 2017.  In April, American Marksman purchased Stryker Ammunition (Searcy, AR) and Bullets First Manufacturing (Phoenix, AZ).  The purchase and acquisition of Stryker and Bullets First has added to our ability to increase our product offerings with manufacturing, enhanced shipping and speed of delivery.   American Marksman plans to spend $35 million renovating a vacant 336,000 sq ft building at the Lake City Ammunition Plant and create as many as 400 new jobs over the next six years.

American Marksman’s mission is to be the leading recycler of ammunition and technologies in respective target markets with the vision of delivering the highest quality ammunition and components to civilian firearms enthusiasts and sportsmen throughout the country.

American Marksman is a dedicated manufacturer and supplier of high quality ammunition in the primary calibers of 9MM, .223, 5.56, 7.62, 300 Blackout, and 50 Caliber.  For more product information and opportunities available for bulk, wholesale, and distributor availability please contact our Corporate Headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska (
