The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently awarded Federal Ammunition a major contract. The multi-agency contract provides for up to $75 million of .223 Remington and training ammo to multiple Department of Homeland Security (DHS) law enforcement components and other federal agencies, according to a press release issued by Federal.
The contract, which begins in 2019, will provide agents and officers with .223 Rem. duty and training ammunition, according to Federal.
“We are proud to provide the highest quality duty ammunition to DHS agents in the field,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “Officers in the field require the highest quality ammunition at their disposal, in their vigilant fight to protect our freedoms. Federal Tactical ammunition ensures the highest performance threshold, and absolute officer confidence in terminal performance.”
Moreover, the contract loadings utilize Federal brass, projectiles and primers, according to the release.
ICE, which was created in 2003, is tasked with promoting homeland security and safety. ICE also enforces federal laws governing border control, immigration, customs and trade. The agency has more than 20,000 employees in more than 400 stateside offices and 46 foreign countries. Its annual budget is roughly $6 billion. ICE executes its mission through the enforcement of more than 400 federal statutes, and focuses on immigration enforcement, terrorism prevention and combating the illegal movement of people and trade.
