    Homeland Security Stocks Up On 450Million Rounds Of Ammo

    ATK Secures .40 Caliber Ammunition Contract with Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE)

    ANOKA, Minn., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- ATK ATK +0.25% 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.

    ATK is an aerospace, defense, and commercial products company with operations in 22 states, Puerto Rico, and internationally. News and information can be found on the Internet

    Wait there stocking up on Hollow point rounds? What is Homeland security allowed to circumvent the Geneva Convention or are they exempt from it?

    Anyway, can i has some of those rounds maybe a million or so? I don't even own a .40 firearm... yet but if I can get some of them bullets I just might trade my 303 in:)

    homeland security can do whatever they want and normally do aswell
    and with the amount of money they have at there disposal its pretty scary when you see the numbers

    heres a pic of money they requested for the 2012 year
    its SERIOUS amounts of money

    also ya gotta take into account that this original story covers many agencys
    and its not clear how much ammo they plan on buying but the contract says it can be up to 450million rounds

    either way if they did buy the max 450million rounds im sure thats enuff to shoot every american citizen at least twice and possibley have ammo to spare lol

    what is scary is the amount of money the American goverment spends on various projects and some of them you would swear are right out of science fiction
