Winchester receives new U.S. army ammo contract valued up to $145 million

There is one critical item that often gets overlooked as folks talk about interesting topics such as reloading die brands and types, scale types and brands. And, what might that item be?
The effects of different primers on ammunition accuracy is a topic that interests many, but which relatively few can easily test with precision. Most competitive shooters are limited in their access to a 1000-yard range and a quality accuracy-testing facility. Thus, experimentation with primers is often done at shorter ranges, relying heavily on chronograph results to help select primer brands or lots by velocity uniformity and accuracy testing.
Worth up to $157M, the contract is for .300 (and .338) Norma Mag. sniper ammo
