True Velocity started making .308 ammo available on the commercial market back in 2021 and said at SHOT this year that they planned to expand their commercial line to 5.56. That day has arrived. Today they announced ammo in three bullet weights. Here’s their press release . . .
Texas-based ammunition manufacturer TV Ammo, Inc. (“True Velocity”) announced today the launch of its composite-cased 5.56x45mm cartridge, making the company’s advanced, lightweight ammunition available in the most widely consumed caliber in the U.S. commercial market.
True Velocity will initially offer the 5.56 cartridge in the following three configurations, with additional options forthcoming:
• 5.56x45mm (69-grain Sierra MatchKing) – MSRP: $39.99 (20ct box)
• 5.56x45mm (77-grain Sierra MatchKing) – MSRP: $39.99 (20ct box)
• 5.56x45mm (55-grain Full Metal Jacket) – MSRP: $24.99 (20ct box)
True Velocity’s composite-cased ammunition is designed to offer extensive advantages over traditional brass-cased ammunition, including exceptional dimensional consistency, significantly enhanced accuracy, reduced heat transfer, and an approximate 30 percent reduction in weight over traditional brass-cased cartridges. The 5.56 line of products will be the first to be produced with True Velocity’s Generation 3 advanced manufacturing technology, offering a level of process control, precision and automation that is unprecedented in the ammunition industry.
“There are hundreds of millions of rounds of 5.56 ammo consumed in this country every year,” said True Velocity Chairman and Co-CEO Kevin Boscamp. “We’re extremely excited to make True Velocity’s composite case technology available to the shooters who rely on this caliber. I’m confident they will see very quickly what makes our ammunition superior.”
True Velocity’s introduction of a composite-cased 5.56x45mm product expands the company’s commercial line of ammunition, which was initially launched in multiple configurations of .308 Winchester in July 2021. The company expects additional new caliber introductions over the next year.
