    On February 5, 2013 the Department of Homeland Security issued a “Solicitation/Contract/Order for Commercial Item” for ammunition to be purchased and delivered to the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.

    The ammunition being purchased is “Commercial Lead Training Ammo” — or CLTA, in government speak.

    There are three components to the order:

    1. .40 caliber, 165 grain jacketed hollow point rounds

    2. 9mm, 115 grain jacketed hollow point rounds

    3. 9mm, 124 grain ball ammunition

    On February 7, three sources — the Examiner, The Blaze and InfoWars – claimed that the DHS was adding 21,600,000 rounds of ammunition to its stockpile.

    The next day, Investors.com reported the 21,600,000 round purchase by DHS.

    The Daily Caller has reviewed the purchase solicitation and has determined that those reports are wildly inaccurate.
