True Velocity 6.8mm Composite-Case Ammo Selected by Army

True Velocity 6.8mm Composite-Case Ammo Selected by Army

True Velocity composite‐case ammunition has been selected for the U.S. Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) modernization program. The 6.8mm cartridge was submitted as part of an overall NGSW weapon system in partnership with General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and firearm manufacturer Beretta Defense Technologies.

True Velocity’s proprietary 6.8mm case design will provide end users with significant logistical and operational advantages over traditional brass‐cased ammunition, including substantially increased effective range and muzzle energy, drastic reduction in cartridge weight and enhanced accuracy.

The combination of True Velocity’s ammunition with the General Dynamics OTS weapon submission results in a state‐of‐the‐art weapon system capable of long‐range lethality, short recoil impulse, significant ballistic improvements and enhanced operational effectiveness for the soldier.

“True Velocity’s 6.8mm composite case design produces a level of performance, consistency and efficiency never before seen in small arms ammunition,” said Chris Tedford, president and chief operating officer for True Velocity. “Combining True Velocity’s innovation and technology with the expertise of General Dynamics OTS and Beretta results in a weapon system solution that exceeds NGSW requirements and provides the U.S. Army with a definitive edge on the field of battle.”
