Winchester, the largest manufactures of small-caliber ammunition for the U.S. military, has been awarded with a contract from the United States Army to develop and plan production for new 6.8 mm cartridges.
True Velocity, an entrant in the U.S. Army's Next Generation Squad Weapons system trials, highlighted that its composite-cased 6.8 mm cartridge can be employed in current firearms by simply switching out barrels.
True Velocity delivered more than 625,000 rounds of composite-cased 6.8 mm ammunition for evaluation by the U.S. Army.
The U.S. Army issued a multi-million dollar contract for the creation of 115 optic prototypes for its Next Generation Squad Weapon system.
A semi-automatic version of the NGSW entry from Cobalt Kinetics/MARS Inc., will be available to consumers next year.
True Velocity composite-cased ammunition has been selected for the U.S. Army's Next Generation Squad Weapon modernization program.
