SAAMI Accepts True Velocity As Newest Voting Member

The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) has announced Texas-based True Velocity has been approved as SAAMI’s newest member. True Velocity, which manufactures composite cased ammunition for military, law enforcement and civilian use, will have full voting rights, and members of True Velocity’s leadership team will be named to sit on SAAMI committees in the coming weeks.

SAAMI is an association of the nation’s leading manufacturers of firearms, ammunition and components. The U.S. federal government tasks SAAMI to create and promote technical, performance and safety standards for firearms, ammunition, and components, as well as to be the preeminent global resource for the safe and responsible transportation, storage, and use of these products.

“We are honored to have True Velocity voted into membership by SAAMI,” said True Velocity’s CEO, Kevin Boscamp. “Our goal is to continue to push the industry forward in terms of products, manufacturing, safety and technology. Having a seat at the table with SAAMI will help ensure future products are designed and manufactured with the precision consumers deserve.”

As the first manufacturer focused exclusively on composite-cased cartridges to be inducted into SAAMI, True Velocity will help set the standards and performance specifications for new cartridges in the future.

“Since 1926, SAAMI has set the standard for safety, reliability, and interchangeability of firearms, ammunition and components,” said Rick Patterson, Executive Director of SAAMI. “While safety, reliability, and interchangeability are unwavering prerequisites to everything we do, we also promote the innovation that is the hallmark of this industry and drives SAAMI member companies. We are proud to add True Velocity to this list of industry leaders and look forward to their participation and input in our rigorous standards-developing process.”
