It depends on a lot of things, not the least of which is the mission. For instance, when not actually fighting in a declared war (and there has not been one of those in a while), they have sometimes used Hydra-shoks in the .45 and sometimes Winchester 9mm OSM (147gr. subsonic JHP)and .300 Win. Mag. with 190 gr. match BTHP.

Might have to be more specific.

Best regards,

The U.S. military has purchased ammo from amny different contractors over the years.

Olin/Winchester has always been a prime contractor for pistol, rifle, and shotgun ammunition.

IMI currently makes .45 ball for the U.S. military as well.
