True Velocity will initially offer the 5.56 cartridge in the following three configurations, with additional options forthcoming:

  • 5.56x45mm (69-grain Sierra MatchKing)
  • 5.56x45mm (77-grain Sierra MatchKing)
  • 5.56x45mm (55-grain Full Metal Jacket)

True Velocity’s composite-cased ammunition is designed to offer extensive advantages over traditional brass-cased ammunition, including exceptional dimensional consistency, significantly enhanced accuracy, reduced heat transfer, and an approximate 30 percent reduction in weight over traditional brass-cased cartridges. The 5.56 line of products will be the first to be produced with True Velocity’s Generation 3 advanced manufacturing technology, offering a level of process control, precision and automation that is unprecedented in the ammunition industry.

“There are hundreds of millions of rounds of 5.56 ammo consumed in this country every year,” said True Velocity Chairman and Co-CEO Kevin Boscamp. “We’re extremely excited to make True Velocity’s composite case technology available to the shooters who rely on this caliber. I’m confident they will see very quickly what makes our ammunition superior.”

True Velocity’s introduction of a composite-cased 5.56x45mm product expands the company’s commercial line of ammunition, which was initially launched in multiple configurations of .308 Winchester in July 2021. The company expects additional new caliber introductions over the next year.

True Velocity’s 5.56 round is available for purchase at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s retail locations nationwide, as well as online at basspro.com and cabelas.com.
