The Beginnings of Sellier & Bellot Ammo

The French merchant Louis Sellier, who was the 17th of 19 children (two of his brothers met their end at the hand of the guillotine during the French Revolution), started a factory in Prague to manufacture percussion caps, and extended an invitation to fellow Frenchman Jean Maria Nicolaus Bellot to join the company soon after production began. Sellier originally left France to avoid being conscripted into the Napoleonic Army in 1809, settling in Hamburg under the name Dell. His first business, with relative Barthelemy Sellier, was originally called the Rosenkranz Company and was based in Leipzig. The pair changed the company to Sellier and Company. While primarily in the business of producing luxury goods such as crystal and bronze, the company also dealt in hunting weapons and other supplies, which laid the groundwork for ammunition manufacturing later. A rather curious figure, Sellier returned to France secretly during his German sojourn. During one of these trips he met Annette Huré, the daughter of a French colonial governor. When he asked for his beloved’s hand in marriage, her father refused and hid her away in a monastery.

Sellier kidnapped her and everything seemed to have worked out for the best. The pair had their first child in 1815, getting married the next year. They then moved to Leipzig, where Sellier threw himself into his work with gusto. While Sellier was starting a family, Bellot studied at Paris’ Polytechnic School. He learned about potassium chlorate and mercury fulminate, the latter of which had recently been rediscovered in 1799. The alchemists of the medieval period knew how to prepare mercury fulminate, but their formulas had been lost and forgotten. Bellot diligently studied ammunition primers made from potassium chlorate and black powder. Around 1820, the entire ammunition industry began to change. The flintlock began disappearing in favor of more modern ammunition using percussion caps. Most workshops simply converted flintlock weapons, producing primers with very crude materials. Thus, they were unable to produce to scale and, as such, ammunition was very expensive.

S&B Ammo becomes the gold standard

By 1835, Sellier & Bellot ammo produced 150 million caps annually between two factories. This certainly made it the most prolific ammunition manufacturer in Europe, and quite possibly the entire world. They did all of this with a mere 120 employees at their factories, and they likely could have produced even more if the Austrian Imperial government had granted their petition to lift the amount of mercury fulminate that could be produced. Alas, His Imperial Majesty did not.

During WWI, Sellier & Bellot ammo shifted production to ammunition for military rifles and pistols – including the 9mm. After the end of WWI, they became the primary supplier of pistol ammo for the Czech army and police. They simultaneously expanded their commercial product lines with a focus on Sellier & Bellot ammo for competition and hunting. Then they grew again after WWII (exporting about 70 percent of their production), expanding their product lines to be able to sell more than 85 different cartridges for rifles and pistols, as well as all popular gauges for shotgun, with the 12 gauge being most abundant.
