    In doing some short research it seems that Lake City Ammo is owned by Uncle Sam. How is Federal affiliated with Lake City Ammo?

    I saw boxes of 5.56 shells at a gun show that read manufactured by Federal Ammunition. The box was black and read American Eagle but it was being sold as Lake City Ammo.

    What is the connection, if any?

    Thanks

    Alliant Tech Systems (ATK) now has the contract to run the Lake City plant.
    ATK owns Federal, and just about everything else. :D

    Below is a link to ATK. Its a pretty neat link if you are into things military. In the link on the left side click on Gun Systems and Military Ammunition you will find some cool info.
