Winchester Ammunition is the award recipient of an exclusive .308 Winchester/7.62x51 NATO contract from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). With a five-year term and a value threshold of $5 million, the contract is the first of its kind in this caliber and is established in support of the FBI’s prestigious sniper program.
The Winchester 169-grain Sierra boat tail hollow point .308 Winchester cartridge was selected as the sole source for deployment by the FBI after undergoing the agency’s rigorous testing protocol and examination process based on severable testable criteria.
“To the East Alton and Oxford teams responsible for this great win, thank you for your diligent work on this competitive and highly technical project,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester. “This victory speaks to the talents and expertise of our team and I am very proud to see Winchester being selected once again by a premier national security organization such as the FBI.”
As the world’s largest small-caliber ammunition enterprise, Winchester has supported America’s military, federal government and law enforcement for more than a century. For more on this latest contract, check out winchester.com.
