ATK Response to Inquiries Regarding Once-Fired Brass Cases
This was in response to MSSA’s questioning whether ATK was involved in an end-run around the rescinding order by the DOD to stop destroying once fired brass at US military bases. – AmmoLand.com
MINNEAPOLIS, MN –-(AmmoLand.com)- ATK is a strong supporter of our armed forces, the shooting sports industry, second amendment rights and all of our customers who choose to reload ammunition.
In fact, ATK is a leader in the reloading market. The dated brochure and presentation have caused confusion in the marketplace and do not reflect the views of our company and will be immediately withdrawn.
As a service to our military customers, we routinely handle demil operations for various munitions and respond to requests from military installations for reclamation and recycling of military items.
Each contract is awarded through the military installation’s procurement process. The installations received fair value for the brass.
ATK fully supports the provision passed by Congress last year to ensure that demilitarized spent brass casings remain available for civilian use.Amanda Covington ATK Armament Systems
