A word about our 5.56x45mm NATO and 7.62x51mm NATO Spec ammunition – FightLite® Industries generally designs its products around NATO Spec ammunition and more specifically, ammunition produced at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant which is the “gold standard” for military grade ammunition. Lake City is a government-owned, contractor-operated (GOCO) ammunition production plant in Independence, MO that produces most of the small arms ammunition used by US Armed Forces and warfighters. Established in 1941, Lake City has been operated by ATK (which was recently acquired by Northrop Grumman) since 2001 but will transition to Olin Winchester as its operator on October 1, 2020. Olin Winchester makes excellent products and it is our expectation that they will continue Lake City’s reputation for “gold standard” military grade ammunition; but what we don’t know is what Lake City ammunition availability may (or may not) be from Olin Winchester for civilian sales.
So why do we gravitate toward NATO Spec ammunition when there are many other options and, in some cases, more accurate ammunition being produced or imported by civilian companies? To sum it up in three words: consistency, durability and reliability. NATO Spec ammunition usually has thicker case wall and base, which is less prone to damage and case blowout when used in chambers designed for automatic fire. Non-corrosive boxer primers are sealed against moisture intrusion and are staked into the primer pocket which prevents primer blowouts. Projectiles are sealed in the case to prevent moisture intrusion and the case mouth is crimped into the cannelure to prevent bullet setback under recoil loading; which when it occurs can drive case and chamber pressures up to extremely high and dangerous levels for the firearm and the operator. The Lake City propellants are non-corrosive and burn rates are also very consistent between production lots, as are the case sizing and case annealing processes. All of this translates to greater reliability with NATO Spec ammunition, because many civilian producers skip some of the listed production steps to keep their product costs down. Lake City ammunition spent cartridge casings are reloadable with common boxer primers for those who reload ammunition.
