    ATK Secures .40 Caliber Ammunition Contract with Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE)
    --ATK Wins Five-Year, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract for .40 Caliber Ammunition from DHS, ICE --Additional .40 Caliber Ammunition Contract with 450 Million Round Potential Demonstrates ATK's Leadership in Ammunition Manufacturing

    ANOKA, Minn., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- ATK ATK -0.62% announced that it is being awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds.

    ATK was the incumbent and won the contract with its HST bullet, which has proven itself in the field. The special hollow point effectively passes through a variety of barriers and holds its jacket in the toughest conditions. HST is engineered for 100-percent weight retention, limits collateral damage, and avoids over-penetration.

    "We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE," said Ron Johnson, President of ATK's Security and Sporting group. "The HST is a proven design that will continue to serve those who keep our borders safe."

    ATK will produce the ammunition at the Federal Cartridge Company facility in Anoka, Minn. Deliveries are expected to begin in June.

    Standard police pistol /smg round. Not a very effefctive cobat round if that is what you are thinking.

    With 300,000,000 people in the USA, and police across this nation (who need to practice) I guess that aint a big deal.


    Bulk ammo gives the best price and when stretched out over time......

      Well, if they kill me I get to go to heaven.

      1.5 bullets for every American.

      Times are dark, and harsh. It doesn't surprise me.

        Well, if the marksmanship is like some reports I've seen of police "shootouts", it'll take an average of 15-25 shots to immobilize just one person; however if they are really accurate, well-------!

        I'm with you though - a quick trip to Heaven.

            Is DHS anticipating some kind of trouble in the near future? I have to wonder with the current headlines I've been seeing lately. The Trayvon/Zimmermen controversy, the increasing number of protests that it's sparked, OWS coming back.

            I think they're preparing a fight against the above mentioned crowds.

            How did this story get released in the first place? Was it leaked or did some official openly announce it? If the latter is the case, when was the last time DHS came out to announce what they were doing in regards to stockpiling weapons or ammo?

                The company that got the contract,ATK has a factory close to where I live,not more than 5 or 10 min. drive from where I live.

                When I first moved here in the 1960 's,you could here them test firing the ammumition into the dirt hills.The HST or hydra-shok two ammunition,it also could stand for Harry S. Truman.

                  Nothing to see here folks. It's not unusual for federal agencies to order ammo in the manner described in the article above. It's for a maximum of 450 million rounds over a period of as much as 5 years and once training and target practice are taken into account.....

                    And that is just the pistol rounds.

                    Wait till the rifles come out.......


                    I tried to find out from BATF what kind of normal output ammo manufacturers have. All I could find was firearm production.

                    I suspect Cabelas moves at least that much ammo in a year.

                        Thanks, Steve and Wally, for the answer to the question in the thread title.

                        For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

                            MSMHS prepping for domestic war? Please watch

                            Yes, we already read about this; however, this is the first instance of video from MSM that I have located where the topic of all that ammunition and military buildup inside the US has been addressed. Hearing is one thing; seeing it reported on main stream media is a whole other ballgame, IMHO.

                            MSM is now reporting on the purchase of the 450 million rounds of ammunition recently purchased by the Department of Homeland Security. RT, the news source in the video below, reports on the growing relationship between DHS, state and local police. This is a very important and significant report. Please watch and share; if the MSM is now reporting on this, we too should stand up and take notice.
                            As children of the Most High God through our Saviour Jesus Christ, let us take the time to pray for our loved ones and the other souls who will be left behind if they do not heed the Holy Spirit.

                              Alarmist "news" reporting aside, there's really nothing to the story.

                              There are billions and billions of rounds of ammo in this country and a lot of .40 caliber is nothing special to get excited about.
