The U.S. Army recently awarded Winchester ammunition an $8.1 million order for 7.62mm ammunition under an existing “Second Source” contract. Winchester will manufacture the ammunition in its state-of-the-art facility in Oxford, MS with an estimated completion date of Dec 31, 2019. Winchester has received more than $285 million in orders on this contract since it was initially awarded in January 2016.
