ATK to Provide FBI, DOJ Speer’s Duty, Training Bullets; Ron Johnson Comments

ATK has won a potential $75 million contract to provide .40 caliber bullets to the Justice Department and FBI for use in training and on duty, the company announced Wednesday.

The fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract contains 12 base months and four option years.

The company will provide DOJ and FBI with Speer’s Gold Dot Duty bullets and start deliveries later this month.

Law enforcement agencies and departments worldwide have used the bullets for nearly two decades, said Ron Johnson, president of the company’s sporting group.

Speer offers standard training ammunition and a reduced hazard option, which features a frangible projectile that dissipates on contact.

ATK said the reduced hazard option is designed for training indoors and in close quarters

Work will occur at the Speer facility in Lewiston, Idaho.

The company is also providing 450 million HST bullets to the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection under a one-year contract.
