ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --ATK (NYSE: ATK) announced that
it is being awarded a Fixed Price Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity
(IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of
Investigation(FBI) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract to provide duty
and training ammunition features a base of 12 months, includes four option
years and has a maximum value of $75 million over the life of the contract.

Speer's Gold Dot Duty ammunition is known for excellent weight retention,
reliable feeding and exceptional terminal performance. Speer also offers
standard training ammunition and a reduced hazard option (RHT). The Speer RHT
round features a frangible projectile that dissipates on contact and is ideal
for training indoors and in close quarters.

"We understand and appreciate our customers' needs for highly-specialized duty
and training ammunition," said Ron Johnson, President of ATK's Sporting Group.
"Superior performance, accuracy and reliability are the reasons why Gold Dot
remains the most trusted pistol ammunition for law enforcement agencies and
departments worldwide. It has been the industry leader for almost two decades
because of its toughness and ability to perform when it matters most. We are
extremely pleased that our products will be used by these leading agencies
directly responsible for protecting and keeping us safe."

ATK will produce the ammunition at the Speer facility in Lewiston, Idaho.
Deliveries are expected to begin this month.
