The FBI has awarded Federal and Speer Ammunition all four categories of its handgun ammunition bid. Three of the rounds will be manufactured at the company’s Anoka, Minnesota, facility, while the fourth will be made in Lewiston, Idaho.

According to Federal, this award will keep 35,000 employees trained and ready for duty. Federal and Speer are the only brands to receive awards in all four ammunition categories: Service (full-size), Service (micro), Reduced-Lead Training and Frangible. Federal and Speer were the primary for the Training and Frangible rounds with secondary designations for the full-size and micro-service rounds.

This Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quality contract is a one-year base type with four possible option years.

Here is what Federal’s President Jason Vanderbrink had to say about the FBI handgun ammo contracts:

“It is an honor that our brands continue to be selected for use by the most trusted law enforcement agency and value the products we make. The ongoing validation of the technology and performance found in every round of ammunition made by our highly skilled American workforce brings great pride to our company.”

Says David Leis, Federal and Speer’s vice president of law enforcement, government and international sales:

“We are excited to build the FBI the best bullets on the market for both duty and training. This is a win for our engineering team, as the FBI will be utilizing new as well as refined bullet technology in their firearms for both service and training.”
