With the fiscal cliff looming over the American taxpayer like the Sword of Damocles, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), via the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) has requested another 200,000 rounds of .40 caliber Federal Ammunition hollow point rounds. This is not a part of a larger order, spread out over time, but rather, the 200,000 rounds would need to be delivered in toto after the contract is awarded.
These rounds are to be delivered to an a training site in North Charleston, South Carolina. This facility “specializes in Maritime Law Enforcement and Port Security Training. Basic and advanced training programs are conducted in concert with the U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, the U.S. Courts Probation and Pretrial Services Training Academy, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Training Academy, the Customs and Border Protection Field Operations Academy, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.”
Federal Ammunition, also known as “Federal Cartridge” has been a frequent awardee of DHS ammunition contracts, is now a part of Alliant Techsystems Operations LLC (ATK), on June 30, 2012, changed to Federal Cartridge Company.
