ATK has received orders for approximately $387 million for small-caliber rifle ammunition under a new Oct 2013 contract and include a mix of 5.56mm, 7.62mm and .50-caliber high-quality military ammunition.

"Our vision for Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is a highly-efficient production facility that is lean, scalable and sustainable for the next generation of the nation's warfighters," said Kent Holiday, vice president and general manager of ATK's Small Caliber Systems division.
