The Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has selected Federal Ammunition as the primary awardee for a 5.56 mm NATO Service and Training, Reduced-Lead Ammunition contract. This multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract is for an ordering period of five years. Product delivery will commence in April 2021.

The FBI is the federal government’s principal agency responsible for investigating violations of more than 260 federal statutes. For this award, the FBI selected a service round with Federal Ammunition’s tactical bonded technology. Made exclusively for law enforcement, it achieves reliability, terminal performance and accuracy paramount to the survival of those in the face of violent confrontation.

Says Federal President Jason Vanderbrink:

“Federal continues to be honored that the most trusted law enforcement agencies, both domestically and internationally, continue to believe and value the products we make. It’s a solid validation of the technology and performance found in every round of ammunition made by our highly skilled American workforce.”

David Leis, Federal’s vice president of Law Enforcement, Government and International Sales, also chimed in on the nature of the contract.

“This is a prestigious award and substantiates Federal’s reputation as the manufacturer of the market’s most advanced rifle ammunition. From service to training, Federal offers the best rifle rounds for supporting the specified mission. The training round selected is designed with one of the most accurate bullets in the market. The cartridge is configured to replicate duty performance, so agents’ training experiences are authentic to their duty expectations.”
