Texas-based ammunition manufacturer TV Ammo (“True Velocity”) announced this week its composite-cased 5.56x45 mm NATO cartridges will be available sometime this month at Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops. The retail outlets will also offer them on their web stores.
There was no shortage of introductions and announcements from ammunition companies in 2022. New cartridges grab attention and headlines, but there was a trend quietly gaining momentum this year, one that holds a promise of making those dreadful periods of ammo shortages shorter, or at least reducing their frequency.
In developing its state-of-the-art centerfire rifle cases, True Velocity Ammunition has moved away from metal and placed polymer center stage. The result is a new self-contained cartridge that is lighter in weight, remarkably consistent from round to round and admirably accurate.
Known for its unique polymer-cased ammunition, True Velocity is expanding into the firearm field through the acquisition of LoneStar Future Weapons following a transaction valued at approximately $84 million.
True Velocity now offers its composite-cased .308 Win. ammunition, developed for U.S. military’s Next Generation Squad Weapon Program, to the civilian market.
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.
