Primetake Saluting Cartridges in Singapore
The Primetake ceremonial artillery shell cases from the 21-gun salute fired during the State Funeral Procession of founding Prime Minister [Singapore] Lee Kuan Yew will be given to individuals and organisations closely linked to him. Primetake are honoured to have their ceremonial saluting cartridges so closely associated and distributed to individuals and organisations throughout Singapore in such a meaningful way.
Visitors: Saluting Cartridges
March 2016 saw a number of visits from the Middle East to review Primetake’s Ceremonial and Saluting capabilities. The visits gave Primetake the opportunity to showcase its 25 Pdr cartridges in their Field Gun to demonstrate the cartridges high quality, reliability and excellence.
Primetake have recently expanded the saluting cartridges range, including the new 12 Pdr ceremonial cartridge. The saluting product group is a great area of growth for Primetake and as such are always seeking to further design and develop products to meet specific customer requirements.

Towards the end of March 2016 Primetake welcomed guests from a variety of organisations in Spain to discuss the full range of high quality specialist munitions offered. The visit proved highly rewarding for both parties, featuring an interactive demonstration of 12 gauge MOE and Crowd Control cartridges, Pyrotechnics & Distraction devices, EOD, Counter Terror and Ωmega™ Sniper ammunition, utilising Primetake’s various facilities.
The Ωmega™ Sniper ‘Special Purpose 2’, Primetake’s highly specialised glass penetrating .308″ round which remains incredibly accurate post-barrier penetration was a particularly impressive round for the guests to observe given its specialised capability.
