Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC), a Strategic Defense Company with almost 100 years of experience in the national and international market, a world leader in ammunition and a traditional manufacturer of long guns, is at LAAD Security & Defence 2024 exhibiting its broad portfolio of products and novelties for the security, military and civilian markets.

The exhibition, Latin America’s largest and most important in the area of security and defense, takes place from April 2 to 4, 2024, at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo.

LAAD Security & Defense brings together more than 150 exhibiting brands from 20 countries, around 38,000 visitors and official delegations from more than 35 countries, with optimistic prospects for new business, partnerships and networking. Organized by Creative Events Brazil Exibições, the event has the support of federal, state and municipal security agencies, the Ministry of Defence, the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

On this occasion, Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos, the main exhibitor and with one of the largest stands together with Taurus, is exclusively presenting and highlighting the new Frangible ammunition produced with SinterFire projectiles, an American company that is now part of the CBC Global Ammunition Group.

SinterFire, founded in 1998 and constantly innovating, located in Pennsylvania, produces the most widely used lead-free frangible projectiles in the world, made with an exclusive composition of copper and tin and a heat treatment process developed by the company itself. The frangible projectiles disintegrate into small particles upon impact with hard surfaces, thus reducing the possibility of ricochets.

Another novelty on display is the CBC Ranger Pro precision rifle, aimed at professionals in the public security sector and specially designed to meet the demands of the police environment.

The CBC .308 Win Ranger Pro rifle has a 5-round capacity, optional 24″ or 18″ barrel, Cerakote® Armor Black or Desert Sand finish, aluminum stock and stainless steel barrel and receiver. It has a height-adjustable cushion, adjustable sill, integrated monopod (rear support) and standard Aftermarket grip. Built with highly resistant materials, the weapon incorporates state-of-the-art technology to ensure that every shot is controlled, achieving Sub-MOA precision, the standard demanded by elite snipers in special operations groups.

Its ergonomic design, 3-slug locking bolt and 60° trigger, offers comfort and optimized handling. With a standard M-LOK handguard and Picatinny rail for installing accessories, it offers flexibility for customization, allowing adaptation to the specific needs of each operation, whether in rapid response situations in urban areas, border patrol or long-range tactical operations.

In addition to these new products, CBC will be exhibiting more than 60 domestic and imported long guns at LAAD 2024, including the Pump Military Tungsten, Khan Mace Tactical and Khan Mace Force rifles, and more than 130 models of ammunition in different calibers and projectile configurations.

CBC offers the most comprehensive range of ammunition, from .22LR to medium calibers. The portfolio includes a series of premium products, developed with its own technology for the most specific needs.

Among the main ammunition sold on the market are Bonded ammunition, which performs excellently in FBI Protocol tests, and the new generation of Pro Shock expanding ammunition, which has a projectile design developed using a special construction technique, offering superior ballistic performance. In training ammunition, the NTA (Non Toxic Ammunition) ammunition will be on display, which does not generate toxic gases or residues during firing, as it has a fully encapsulated projectile, smokeless chemical gunpowder and an initiator mixture free of heavy metals.

Other high-tech CBC ammunition presented were the 5.56 and 7.62 IR Tracer – with a trace visible only with night vision goggles and the 5.56 SAT – a new generation of ammunition with performance equivalent to the 7.62 caliber. This ammunition meets NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) specifications, which puts CBC on the same footing as the world’s leading defense ammunition manufacturers. Premium 5.56 OTM and .223 Polymer Tip ammunition will also be on display.

In the high-precision ammunition category, the highlight is the CBC SNIPER 1 series, made up of the .223 Rem, .308 Win and .50 BMG calibers.

Also in the line of ammunition, CBC is presenting products in development at LAAD that will be launched on the market in the future, such as 5.56 and 7.62 Expansive ammunition. These will be products for special forces operating in Close-Quarters Combat environments. For this reason, it is necessary to use ammunition with projectiles that do not have the ability to transfix targets, in order to minimize collateral risk.

The company is also showing visitors anti-disturbance cartridges in short, medium and long-range versions. Loaded with high-density polyethylene or rubber shells, they are suitable for use in law and order situations by public security institutions.

And it presents the new anti-disturbance cartridges loaded with a single projectile and intended for controlling disturbances at medium (10m to 20m) and long (20m to 30m) range. These cartridges show excellent results in accuracy tests at a distance of 20 meters, making them ideal for deterring trespassers in public or private areas, disorder on public roads and riots in prisons, for example.
