RUAG Ammotec specializes in the development and production of high-quality ammunition and hand grenades for law enforcement, armed forces, precision snipers, hunters and target shooters. Based upon a 150 year heritage of innovation and craftsmanship, the company has been able to develop a culture of quality and establish state-of-the-art machine parks strategically located throughout the world. This allows RUAG Ammotec to produce some of the most accurate and reliable small-calibre ammunition, training rounds and long-distance precision ammunition currently in use around the world.
Designed for a wide range of fully and semi automatic weapons, RUAG Ammotec offers a comprehensive line of small calibre ammunition including 5.56, 7.62 and even 4.6 Personal Defence Weapon cartridges. RUAG Ammotec is also a leader in the production 9mm rounds, the most popular and widely used military handgun cartridge in the world. Extensive research and development goes into the design of each type of round, custom tailoring it to the unique needs of the shooter, allowing him to focus on his mission, not his ammunition.
For the most realistic training together with the least possible risk, RUAG Ammotec offers a line of frangible rounds. These bullets have been specifically designed for use in training military and law enforcement personnel, allowing shooters to approach targets to nearly point-blank range, firing from just ahead of the target, without the risk of backsplashes or ricochets. Frangible rounds work together with standard operational rounds, giving the shooter the same feel as if he were firing traditional rounds, ensuring he is completely trained and prepared for an actual live-fire engagement.
RUAG Ammotec is world renowned for specializing in the production of the SWISS P line of precision ammunition for long-range marksmen. Production begins with ensuring the purity and consistency of raw materials. Engineers continuously monitor the production process, making miniscule adjustments to compensate for temperature, humidity and pressure fluctuations, and filling the round with the optimal amount of powder to the exact loading weight. The result is unparalleled accuracy and dependable performance in even the harshest field conditions.
Together with a focus on precision, RUAG Ammotec also maintains concern for the environment and the global community. Lead free, nontoxic operational and frangible bullets provide green ammunition solutions. RUAG’s patented SINTOX® primer is free from toxic heavy metals like barium, lead and antimony, and has been providing non-toxic, corrosion-free reliability and protecting shooters and range personnel since 1980. In addition, RUAG Ammotec’s innovative social responsibility programs have led to the recycling of tonnes of metal and explosives.
