Specialist Ammunition – Spotlight

10 July 2017

Primetake’s Specialist Ammunition has been designed for Elite Forces utilising ground-breaking technology to provide enhanced, built-for-purpose capability for the most challenging tactical scenarios. The range includes small arms calibers from 9 x 19mm through to 12.7 x 99mm (.50″). Built with the same ethos as Primetake’s Omega™ Sniper Ammunition, the range offers match grade precision and accuracy as standard, as well as enhanced specialist capability and effect. This ammunition has been designed to strengthen existing tactical capability and create new tactical possibilities, unachievable with conventional ‘commercial off the shelf’ ammunition.

9 X 19MM COUNTER TERROR

One of the finest examples of Primetake’s specialist ammunition is the 9mm Counter Terror Round, designed for use in confined spaces and sensitive areas where bystanders and hostage situations demand low risk of over penetration. The projectile is designed to impart its kinetic energy within the target which achieves both incredible stopping power and reduced risk of over penetration. The projectile even continues to perform as intended through common urban barriers such as car windshields.

SPECIAL PURPOSE 2

7.62 X 35MM (0.300″) | 7.62 X 51MM (0.308″)

This round is specifically designed to accurately engage targets behind glass barriers. The projectile will penetrate laminated and double glazed windows and remain accurate to achieve target engagement of the initial point of aim. Currently available in 7.62 X 51MM (0.308″) caliber, the projectile is also due to be optimised for the 300 AAC Blackout range development as the ‘Urban Combat Round’.

SUBSONIC

7.62 X 35MM (0.300″) | 7.62 X 51MM (0.308″)

The Subsonic projectile is designed for tactical use to effectively reduce the user’s sonic signature. Primetake’s projectile is well regarded as potentially one of the world’s most accurate subsonic rounds, being capable of achieving sub 1 M.O.A. The Subsonic projectile is planned for optimisation for the 300 AAC Blackout range development.

 

ARMOUR PIERCING

7.62 X 35MM (0.300″) | 7.62 X 51MM (0.308″) | 8.6 X 70MM (0.308″) | 12.7 X 99MM (0.308″)

Primetake have developed a number of Specialised Armour Piercing projectiles spanning several calibers. Each of the projectiles command a tungsten carbide core allowing for astonishing destructive and penetrative capability.  Each round is qualified to defeat an array of hardened targets yet due to ingenious projectile design and round optimisation can achieve sub 1 M.O.A. accuracy. The new 300 AAC Blackout range development is set to include an Armour Piercing variant.

ARMOUR PIERCING INCENDIARY

8.6 X 70MM (0.308″) | 12.7 X 99MM (0.308″)

The Armour Piercing Incendiary projectiles employ the same technology as the Armour Piercing, resulting in an equally effective penetrative capability. However, the API also utilises a highly unique mechanically initiated incendiary effect which produces both front and rear incendiary, contrary to most API counterparts. Despite the intricate projectile design, the rounds have been optimised and are capable of achieving sub 1 M.O.A. accuracy.

7.62 X 35MM (0.300″) AAC BLACKOUT

ARMOUR PIERCING | LONG RANGE | URBAN COMBAT | FRANGIBLE | SUBSONIC

One of Primetake’s key on-going developments is within the increasingly important .300″ AAC Blackout caliber. With many Special Forces and Counter Terror units set to employ the caliber, Primetake are introducing the new range of products with highly specialised projectiles to maximise performance and capability in challenging tactical scenarios. Where the .300″ AAC Blackout exceeds, the Primetake 300 BLK range further enhances and specialises. Calling on fine-tuned projectiles and technology optimised over years of research and development work, Primetake are developing several variants including; Long Range, Frangible, Subsonic, Urban Combat and Armour Piercing.

The date the new range will be available will be announced at a later time, at which point specification documents will be made available on request.
