PCP Ammunition Company will deliver a family of Lightweight Advanced Polymer Sub-Sonic Ammunition. We will do this by adapting our current family of calibers by decreasing the internal volume and shape of the case to match the optimal performance requirements of the cartridges. This will result in a sub-sonic ammunition that is lightweight, clean burning (due to the internal volume and dimensions), and has better accuracy and standard deviations than currently available subsonic ammunition. We will eliminate the problems experienced with traditional sub-sonic ammunition by uneven distribution of powder and/or fillers by utilizing our reduced volume cases. The final result will be a more reliable and accurate round for covert operations. This will benefit not only the military, but law enforcement, Department of Homeland Security, and other special tactics teams. These rounds can be manufactured using our patent pending assembly and loading systems currently used. This product can be easily commercialized using our current contacts with dealers and distributors worldwide.
