“Our team has been working on this project for over two years and are all very proud to have been trusted to load this important project,” said Bill Gravatt, Capstone’s President. “It was a total team effort by everyone at Capstone, Ultra Defense and other areas of Nammo. The Berger and Lapua projectiles had already been specified for this program. But now we have the honor of loading the ammunition.”
“Winning this contract was strategically very important to us in paving the way towards future long term contracts specializing in advanced ammunition loadings,” added Adam Braverman, Director of Sales, Marketing and Distribution.
Capstone will load the ammunition in its Mesa, Arizona facility. The company produces Berger bullets and ammunition. Additionally, Capstone serves as the exclusive distributor of Lapua components and ammunition, Vihtavuori powders and SK Rimfire.
“Working with Ultra Defense and USSOCOM on this project has been a great experience,” said Dan Thelen, Capstone’s General Manager. “Leveraging the bullet production and commercial ammunition capabilities of Capstone/Berger with the legendary quality of Lapua cases puts us in the unique position to deliver a World Class product to our US warfighters.”
