Winchester Ammunition was recently awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract worth $38 million for 9mm frangible ammunition.
The ammunition will be used for close-quarter battle (CQB), combat, and indoor/outdoor CQB training.
“This is another opportunity for Winchester to demonstrate its leadership in support of the U.S. Warfighter,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition.
Winchester is the largest supplier of certified U.S. mil-spec small-caliber ammunition to the U.S. military. The company says it will assume full operational control of the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in October 2020. Lake City is the largest military small-caliber ammunition production facility in the country.
“Since World War I, Winchester has been the U.S. Army’s largest commercial supplier of small caliber ammunition and has met the needs of law enforcement and U.S. armed forces with decades of support at the highest levels,” Winchester says.
