Winchester Ammunition recently hosted legislators and outdoor industry representatives at a special event in Washington, D.C., to discuss the company’s unwavering commitment to providing the U.S. military with the highest quality ammunition as well as the positive impact of shooting sports, hunting and responsible firearm ownership. More than 40 members of Congress and leadership from the shooting sports and hunting industry were in attendance to discuss important topics.

“As the largest manufacturer of small-caliber ammunition for the U.S. military, we are proud to communicate our continued commitment to innovation and manufacturing excellence with Members of Congress,” said Ken Lane, president and CEO of Olin Corporation. “It’s also exciting to showcase the positive impact the shooting sports has on more than 60 million U.S. citizens each year. These are critical messages to share.”

Members of the shooting sports community, including educators and shooting sports professionals were present at the event. They shared compelling stories about how shooting sports have positively influenced their lives, underscoring the importance of the activities.

“As the leader in providing ammunition to hunters, sport shooters, law enforcement and the U.S. military, Winchester continues to be a very unique brand with a tremendous history,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester. “This event was an opportunity for us to communicate our commitment and ask for continued support in both ammunition manufacturing for the U.S. military and growth in shooting sports participation.”

As a global leader in the shooting sports and hunting industry, and a brand of 158 years, Winchester is committed to safe, legal and responsible firearm use. The company works with key groups on a variety of topics important to the firearm industry, including training and education, and on specific programs such as Gun Owners Care and Project ChildSafe. Winchester will continue to support programs, organizations and individuals who promote hunting and shooting sports activities in a positive and responsible environment.
