Federal Premium recently secured a significant domestic military ammunition contract award with the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center-Crane Division, operated under the U.S. Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command. The five-year contract calls for the delivery of up to $20 million in .40-caliber frangible training rounds featuring Federal Premium's lead-free Catalyst high-performance primer. "We're proud the U.S. Navy picked Federal Premium for this important contract," says Jason Nash, senior director of marketing. "Our Catalyst lead-free priming technology is a major breakthrough."
