The Australian Defence Force has confirmed their decision for Thales Australia (as Australian Munitions) to continue munitions manufacture for long term ADI Propellant supply. This announcement provides hundreds of highly skilled regional Australian workers in Benalla and Mulwala guaranteed job security.
ADI Propellant and Australian Outback Ammunition were both on sale at Steve’s Wholesale stand at the first NZ SHOT expo held in Auckland on 17-18 February 2018. It was a privilege to be able to chat with and answer questions from our NZ customers. Our ammo and propellants were hot sellers and there was a lot of interest in the first of the Australian Pistol and Shotgun (APS) samples – APS350 and APS450 – from the new propellant facility.
Like all Australian Munitions propellants, the powder used in our 300BLK cartridges features Ballistic Temperature Independence (BTI); a unique major advantage ensuring consistent pressure and velocity – whatever the weather. Used in our factory loaded 300BLK, it is also extremely clean burning, keeping your AR style weapon’s action cleaner for longer.
Australian Munitions recently made their debut as one of the 1,600 exhibitors at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoors Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, successfully showcasing the Australian Outback Ammunition line.
The Australian Outback Ammunition line comprises of .223 and .308 calibre ammunition as well as our soon to be released 300 Blackout Ammunition. The unique Ballistic Temperature Independence Characteristics of the Australian Outback line of ammunition attracted a lot of interest from buyers and the Outdoor Media. The new .300 Blackout ammunition is eagerly anticipated by dealers and the US Sport Shooting community.
The SHOT Show is the largest hunting and outdoors trade only show in the world and has been in existence for 36 years. The show attracts professionals from the United States as well as 100 other countries. Final attendance numbers for the show were in excess of 67,000 the largest crowd to date.
Thanks to all those who came to see us at the SSAA Shot Expo 2013.
