Winchester Ammunition recently hosted legislators and outdoor industry representatives at an event in Washington, D.C., to discuss Winchester’s commitment to “providing the U.S. Military with the highest quality ammunition as well as the positive impact of shooting sports, hunting and responsible firearm ownership.”

“As the largest manufacturer of small caliber ammunition for the U.S. Military, we are proud to communicate our continued commitment to innovation and manufacturing excellence with Members of Congress,” said Ken Lane, president and CEO of Olin Corp. “It’s also exciting to showcase the positive impact the shooting sports have on more than 60 million U.S. citizens each year. These are critical messages to share.”

More than 40 members of Congress and leadership from the shooting sports and hunting industry were reported in attendance, coming together to discuss “important” topics.

“As the leader in providing ammunition to hunters, sport shooters, law enforcement, and the U.S. Military, Winchester continues to be a very unique brand with a tremendous history,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition. “This event was an opportunity for us to communicate our commitment and ask for continued support in both ammunition manufacturing for the U.S. Military and growth in shooting sports participation.”

Members of the shooting sports community, including educators and shooting sports professionals, attended the event, sharing “compelling stories about how shooting sports has positively influenced their lives, underscoring the importance of these activities.”
