Capstone Precision Group has been awarded the sub-contract from Ultra Defense Corporation to load the .300 Norma Mag. ammunition for USSOCOM's Advanced Sniper Rifle program. Capstone, part of the Nammo Group, produces Berger bullets and ammunition at its facility in Mesa, AZ, and also distributes Lapua components and ammunition, Vihtavouri Powders and SK rimfire cartridges in the United States.

The single-year contract specifies 800,000 rounds of .300 Norma Mag. that will be loaded with Berger's .30-cal., 215-grain hybrid bullets along with Lapua brass. The contract also includes 200,000 rounds of .338 Norma Mag. loaded with Lapua's .338-caliber, 300-grain armor-piercing AP529 projectiles and Lapua brass. This .338 Norma Mag. load extends the range for snipers over the .300 Norma Mag. load. Berger and Lapua products had already been chosen for the Advanced Sniper Rifle program ammunition—now the loads themselves will be produced by Capstone. Ammunition for the contract will be loaded and tested at the aforementioned facility in Arizona.

With both brands well known by competitive shooters for high quality and match-grade precision, the combination of Berger bullets and Lapua cartridge cases for the Advanced Sniper Rifle program's .300 and .338 Norma Mag. ammunition should prove potent for the U.S. military.
