Federal Ammo

Federal Premium Ammunition is one of the largest and most comprehensive ammunition manufacturers on the planet. The company has a bunch of brands you've probably heard of, including American Eagle, Fusion, and Guard Dog, but their flagship brand is Federal Premium, one of the top choice for multiple shooting activities. Thanks to quality and consistency, this innovative company has a strong reputation among hunters, target shooters, and self-defense gun owners.

While they make ammunition and reloading supplies for pretty much any shooting activity and produce for the U.S. Government/Military at their Lake City facilities, Federal markets themselves heavily in the world of hunting as well as the world of self-defense ammunition. Odds are good you've heard of Hydra-Shok and HST's if you've spent anytime in a concealed carry class. These hollow-points are know around the world for consistent penetration and expansion - two characteristics law enforcement and self-defense experts crave.

On the other side - their lineup of hunting ammunition includes options for game of all shapes and sizes, including varmints, big game, waterfowl, and even dangerous game.

Federal is based out of Anoka, Minnesota, where they employ nearly 1,400 workers at a facility that holds half a million square feet of workspace.

The company was founded in 1922 by Charles L. Horn, who put a particular emphasis on quality and service. It was originally called the Federal Cartridge Company and produced many different products, including shotgun shells. In 1951, the company introduced centerfire primers to their lineup.

By 1960, Federal was color-coding their shotgun ammunition. They were the first ammo manufacturer to color-code their products, a practice that is now widely used throughout the industry. Another innovation came in 1973, when Federal became the first ammunition company to manufacture shells with steel shot.

In 1977, “Premium” centerfire rifle cartridges were introduces by the company, launching the Premium brand for Federal. In 2002, they would officially change the name of the entire company to Federal Premium Ammunition, displaying their commitment to top-quality cartridges and reloading supplies.

One of Federal’s proudest moments was when their “Gold Medal” load helped Team USA win three Olympic medals at the 1996 games in Atlanta.

Federal has always been a company involved in outdoor habitat and conservation. As an example of the company’s consistent commitment to the outdoors, Federal has been a long-time partner with the National Wild Turkey Federation, as well as Pheasants Forever.

In 1937, they even participated in a self-imposed excise tax on ammunition and firearms, an effort that raised billions of dollars for wildlife habitat. By 2014, the company had sold 40 million Pheasants Forever special-edition shotshell, an effort that supported organization directly.

    Approved for Hunting on California State Lands, though expensive. Too bad Diane Feinstein won't let us buy ammo online; Mommy has to approve everything in CA, except pot, freely available. Will deer munch on bails of marijuana? Is it legal to convince a stoned deer to hop in the bed of the old Ford?

    I dialed my Winchester 94 in with this round with a Burris 3X scout scope mounted. It is accurate, and has noticably less recoil than 150 grain rounds. The fast expansion and light weight make this a great defensive round.

    I've used this stuff for several years now. Great practice, plinking and "duty" ammo. The primary "duty" around my place is rabbit control, and this stuff does the job great. A few days ago I took a rabbit with my Henry lever at about 15 yards on a dead run. One shot, one rabbit. NEVER had any failures of any kind with this stuff. I use it my Ruger single six revolvers which with one other widely recognized brand of .22 LR often experiences real difficulty in ejecting spent cases, apparently due case expansion in the cylinder. NOT this stuff! NEVER in at least 1000 rounds fired. It also feeds and ejects flawlessly in my Mossberg "Plinkster" semi-auto - again probably around 1000 rounds with 0 problems, and the Henry eats the stuff like candy and accuracy is like a tack driver with it.
