……….Hot on the heels of last falls .40 S&W contract for the F.B.I., again I thought the Feds were wholesale switching to 9mm especially after their last ballistics report on 9mm ammunition, The Loadout Room giving a great break down HERE. Looks like Winchester has snagged the 9mm deal as well.
……….Winchester Ammunition was recently awarded a contract from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for its Duty and Frangible training 9MM pistol ammunition. Winchester also received a contract from the FBI as the primary source for .40 S&W pistol ammunition in fall, 2017.
……….The 147 gr. bonded jacketed hollow point (JHP) duty cartridge selected by the FBI is designed with patented technology that utilizes a reverse-jacketed, bonded bullet that can penetrate a wide variety of intermediate barriers while maintaining very consistent target penetration and reliable expansion. The nickel-plated cartridge prevents corrosion and ensures smooth feeding and extraction. Flash suppressed powder is used in this cartridge to maintain an agent’s night vision and meet the FBI’s stringent darkened range evaluation.
……….Winchester has been supplying the FBI with service and training ammunition for many years and is honored to be awarded this recent contract and continue to support our nation’s premier law enforcement agency,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition.

……….While when you traditional think of Winchester you don’t immediately think ammunition they have come a long way in a very short time to reinvent what their company can produce and deliver. Securing this second contract with the U.S. government shows us that that maybe this old dog of a company still a few new tricks up it’s sleeve.
