U.S. Special Operations to order XM1162 armor-piercing ammunition | Defense Blog

Black Hills Ammunition Incorporated will be awarded by USSOCOM a one time, sole-source supply to meet the requirements for the .338 Norma Magnum ammunition. The XM1162 is an advanced version of the .338 Norma Magnum cartridge developed for the Advanced Sniper Rifle System. The new rifle sniper cartridge with an armor-piercing bullet is used against exposed and sheltered enemy personnel and light armored vehicles when fired from long-range precision sniper rifles.
