ANOKA, Minnesota - September 24, 2019 - Federal Ammunition was awarded a new delivery order worth $12.9 million under its MK311 Mod 3 Frangible Ammunition contract. Orders were placed under the company's small-caliber ammunition contract, issued by the U.S. Army Contracting Command in 2017.

5.56mm MK311 Frangible Ammunition, better known by its ordnance code, “AA40”, is loaded with a 50-grain frangible bullet comprised of a non-toxic, copper and tungsten powder matrix in a gilding metal jacket. The frangible ammunition is designed to disintegrate into small fragments on impact, minimizing over-penetration and ricochet hazards. The polymer compound round produces limited splash back, which vastly decreases ricochets, making it ideal for training applications.

“This latest order continues our long history of supplying only the highest quality, most reliable ammunition,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink, “at Federal we use innovative technology, with industry-leading components to produce specialized products for training and the battlefield. The ammunition we produce serves the U.S. military, and we are humbled to do so.”

Federal is one of the world’s leading manufacturers in 5.56mm tactical and training ammunition. For more information on Federal ammunition, visit www.federalpremium.com.
