About The Capstone Precision
Capstone Precision Group was formed by Nammo in 2017, following the acquisition
of Berger Bullets. Capstone produces Berger bullets and ammunition, and imports
Lapua centerfire and rimfire ammunition and reloading components, Vihtavuori
smokeless powder, and SK rimfire ammunition into the United States.
We’re pleased to announce the relocation of our bullet manufacturing operation is now complete! Over the past few months, we’ve moved our entire Fullerton, CA facility to the Greater Phoenix Area where we first made Berger projectiles over 30 years ago. Our relocated manufacturing facility is now paired with our new ammunition loading capabilities, where New Berger Ammunition will soon launch in Q2, 2018.
President Bill Gravatt states, “Our #1 priority is to fill back orders and return inventory to satisfactory levels and meet our growing customer demand. Those faithful customers are the reason for our success. Plans are to begin a 2nd shift soon and start offering an unprecedented supply of Berger to support both precision reloading consumers and new Berger Ammunition consumers.”
“Great opportunities are ahead for our company. Our team worked tirelessly to prepare and move operations and we have now returned to production,” said Eric Stecker, who took over as Director of Business Development earlier this year. “November 1st marked the first time a Berger Bullet has been produced in Arizona since 2000.”
Berger is now a part of the Capstone Precision Group, joining Lapua Components & Ammunition, Vihtavuori Propellants and SK Rimfire Products. Authorized dealers may purchase all four premium brands together: one purchase order, one shipment and invoice! For dealer inquiries contact:
We here at Capstone Precision Group are proud to announce that Applied Ballistics Munitions has now become Berger Ammunition. We have been working hard over the past several months to upgrade our machinery and production capacity of our ammunition department. We want to thank your customers that have been using ABM over the years, and want to insure them that our quality and capabilities have improved over the past several months since our move to Mesa, Arizona. Now that both our Bullet and Ammunition plants are located in the same facility, we have made the decision to re-brand ABM as Berger Ammunition. With this re-branding, we expect to begin development on several new cartridges as well. Visit our ammunition page at the link below to find out more!
