Federal Receives Navy Ammunition Contract Worth $41 Million

Recommended Posts

Federal Premium received a Navy ammunition contract worth $41 million over five years, the company announced recently. Additionally, the Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, awarded by U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC), is for Mk 318 Mod 0 carbine small rifle cartridges.

Federal will begin shipping the ammunition in early 2019 to Navy and Marine Corps units, according to the release.

Navy Ammunition Contract: Mk 318 Mod 0

Firstly, the Mk 318 Mod 0 cartridge utilizes Federal’s unique barrier defeating projectile and is compatible with existing 5.56mm weapons systems, according to Federal. Also, the 62-grain open tip match, lead free projectile is designed to defeat intermediate barriers. Further, the round provides terminal performance through barriers commonly encountered on the battlefield, including vehicle windshields and doors.

“This contract demonstrates the design and production strengths within our business, achieving our goals of meeting customer requirements,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “We are enthused Federal ammunition will continue to serve Navy and Marine Corps units, and their unique needs in combat. Design parameters and development of the projectile, a joint effort between Federal and NASWC, represent the continued innovation, and excellence required to support our units in the field.”

The NSWC conducts all Navy research, development, test and evaluation, engineering and fleet support for offensive and defensive systems.

This marks the second major contract Federal has announced in the last few days. The company also secured a $75 million contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Additionally, that contract provides .223 Remington duty and training ammunition to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Also, the multi-agency contract also provides the ammunition to several law enforcement components and other federal agencies.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
