The U.S. Army has ordered more than $115 million worth of 5.56mm, 7.62mm and .50 caliber rounds from Orbital ATK (NYSE: OA).

Orbital ATK said Tuesday it will produce the ammunition at a U.S. government-owned, contractor-operated manufacturing plant located in Independence, Missouri.

The company has invested more than in research, development and capital resources at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant since 2012.
