Winchester Ammunition Awarded U.S. Army Contract

Winchester has been selected by the U.S. Army as the second source provider for small caliber rifle ammunition. This most recent contract is for 5.56mm, 7.62mm and 50 caliber ammunition with an initial order of $37 million and is the third consecutive second source contract Olin Winchester has received.

Winning this contract, combined with being selected as the operating contractor at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, solidifies Winchester’s position supplying small caliber ammunition to the U.S. military.
