True Velocity Launches

Gun owners have an opportunity to try True Velocity .308 Win. cartridges with a composite-cased design, similar to the company’s submission to the U.S. military’s Next Generation Squad Weapon Program. The firm has begun selling 20-round boxes of its loads online for $70, and it’s the first commercially available product from the Texas-based manufacturer.

“We are eager to get our proprietary, high-performance rounds into the hands of discerning shooters across the country,” said True Velocity CEO Kevin Boscamp. “The True Velocity composite-cased .308 Win. is proven to be the highest-performing ammunition currently on the market and we look forward to continuing to raise the bar of excellence as we release additional calibers in the future.”

The currently available load uses a Nosler 168-grain HPBT for the projectile. Muzzle velocity, according to True Velocity’s published data, clocks in at 2,650 f.p.s. from a 24-inch barrel. Additional calibers will be available in the coming months. All True Velocity commercial rounds are made in the United States and undergo hundreds of control checks to achieve precise dimensions and concentricity, ensuring consistency. True Velocity’s use of robotics and attention to detail is on par with medical-grade manufacturing.

Composite-cased ammunition from True Velocity weighs less than traditional brass rounds and reduces heat transfer to firearms—leading to longer chamber life and decreased throat erosion. These rounds boast sub-m.o.a. accuracy and extreme consistency in muzzle velocity, thus providing serious shooters with an extraordinary performance advantage.

In addition to the launch of .308 Win. ammunition, True Velocity is currently retailing a limited quantity of commemorative box sets. Included in the commemorative package, which sells for $159.99, are 22 True Velocity .308 Win. composite-cased cartridges, a branded D.O.P.E. logbook and a 1 m.o.a. True Velocity challenge coin. True Velocity based in Garland, Tex., and was founded in 2010. The company currently has more than 300 patents pending or issued on its products, technology and manufacturing processes.
