AMMO, Inc. Expands its Military-Grade Precision Loading Capacity
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 18, 2021 — AMMO, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWW ) (“AMMO” or the “Company”), a premier American ammunition and munition components manufacturer and technology leader, is pleased to announce that it acquired a new high precision ammunition loading line which it will stand up in its Manitowoc, WI plant.
Precision rifles and high-end optics have increased the effective range of the military and civilian precision rifle shooter many times over the past decade. The U.S. military understandably has exacting manufacturing standards for precision (sniper) ammunition which must be repeatable at significant volume. Civilian shooter enthusiasts have historically handloaded their rifle ammunition to produce consistent results to maximize the accuracy of their system – a luxury not afforded the military sniper community. AMMO’s new high precision rifle loading line is engineered to build the handloaded consistency and quality the end-users demand, while being produced in volume in the Company’s state-of-the-art factory. The line’s primary role will be to produce high precision cartridges featuring AMMO’s U.S. patented armor piercing projectiles for military and law enforcement snipers, while also serving the Company’s civilian long range rifle shooters with match grade ammunition.
“Through our engagement with our military partners, we have developed a thorough understanding of the critical requirement to be able to mass produce precision performance large rifle ammunition. Our team identified this state-of-the-art machinery and moved swiftly to close the transaction to ensure we are prepared to perform under the incredibly demanding U.S. military specifications for precision sniper ammunition,” said Fred Wagenhals, AMMO’s Chairman & CEO. Mr. Wagenhals also noted that “we plan on continuing to strategically and measurably increase our capacity as we have done methodically through the course of the past eighteen months to meet growing end-user demand across all markets.”
