    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Winchester Ammunition was recently awarded a contract by the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security to supply a maximum of 200 million, 40 cal. rounds over the next five years.

    The load selected for this contract is a 135-grain, hollow point designed for the office of Field Operations of Customs and Border Protection. It will fall under the Winchester Ranger line.




    If you really want to lose some sleep, take a look at this Rand Report linked in the comments to that ammo order article - Stability Police Force!

    Why do they need 200 million round of HST's? No wonder we can't find SD ammo.

    The last 2 boarder patrol agents that just wounded a illegal Mexican dope smuggler went to federal prison. Sounds like all they really need they can get at Walmart.
