The article is a little confusing. It states Federal Ammo and then talks about this Evian outfit possibly being the manufacturer. Must be some sort of a shell corporation.
21 cents a round for 40 cal. hollow point ammo does not sound like a legit price.
Yep, noticed that too. There’s a lot of information left out or unclear in this month old article.
For example, how come no one has found any new pertinent information on this contract? No updates? Now that’s suspicious.
Note the contract is only for 200K, not 200 million or some other massive amount. But it is a nice little contract to help “spread the wealth around.”
It’s more like 17-cents per-round.You can”roll your own”for about 7-cents.
“21 cents a round for 40 cal. hollow point ammo does not sound like a legit price.”
Actually, it is. I can produce it for $0.32 cents a round at near retail prices for FMJ 40 cal. I know what the wholesale prices are for the components and it is $0.18 cents a round, so they are producing that ammo for nearly cost.
Also, at just 200,000 total rounds, which is a small order, that would just be a test run. If the ammo is good I suspect there will be a very large order given later.
It is. Was set up to get around the "Small Business Set Aside" requirement of the contract. They are a "Provider" not a "Manufacturer". This is one of the games played in the federal government acquisition process. Some contracts are set aside for woman or minority owned businesses.
