Winchester Ammunition recently landed a $38 million contract by the U.S. Department of Defense for 9mm frangible ammunition. The ammunition will be used for close-quarter battle (CQB) combat and indoor/outdoor CQB training.

This announcement follows the 2019 $85 million DoD contract Winchester was awarded for ammunition in several calibers that’s slated to end this year.

Since World War I, Winchester has been the U.S. Army’s largest commercial supplier of small caliber ammunition, simultaneously meeting the needs of both law enforcement and the U.S. armed forces for decades.

In addition to the new DoD contract, Winchester will assume full operational control of the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant this October. Lake City remains the largest small caliber ammunition military production facility in the United States.
