Army Orders $76M in Orbital ATK Small Caliber Ammo; Jim Nichols Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventOrbital ATK has received a $76 million order to produce and deliver an undisclosed number of .50 caliber ammunition to the U.S. Army.

The Army placed the order for small-caliber ammunition under a supply contract with Orbital ATK, the company said Wednesday

Jim Nichols, vice president and general manager of Orbital ATK’s small caliber systems division, said that company-made ammunition will support U.S. warfighters and allies.

The Army ordered $92 million in 5.56 millimeter and 7.62 mm small-caliber rounds from Orbital ATK in April.

Orbital ATK said it has produced more than 17 billion ammunition rounds at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Missouri since 2000.
