Federal Ammunition has been awarded a two-year contract from the U.S. Navy for 7.62x51 mm rifle ammunition.
The cartridge selected during the two-year contract term is the Mk316 Mod 0, 7.62x51 mm, 175-grain precision match rifle load. The ammunition will be produced by Federal at its Anoka, Minn., facility.
“Federal continues to position itself as a trusted supplier for the U.S. Military and Special Operations,” Federal’s Director of International Law Enforcement and Military Sales Peter Gillette said. “We are excited for this contract win. It validates the quality of our products, thoroughness of our testing procedures, and dedication to hard work from our American factory workers.”
As mentioned, the ordering period for Federal’s new U.S. Navy ammo contract is for a total of two years.
“In general, our match ammunition has a legendary reputation for extreme accuracy, shot after shot, lot to lot. It is trusted time-and-time-again by police and military marksmen,” Gillette said. “MK316 Mod 0 fits in perfectly with Federal’s history of producing extremely accurate ammunition held to tight tolerances required by strict U.S. Military specifications.”
