First Look: Federal Premium Punch

All-new for 2020, Federal Premium offers Punch handgun ammunition specifically designed for effective use in today's concealed-carry guns. The new Punch line will be available in five load options: .380 ACP, .38 Spl., 9 mm Luger, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.  

“Things to consider such as function, reliable ignition, barrier performance, terminal performance, ballistics and other considerations are a lot to digest for most people. What some consumers really need to know is it will function in their gun, every time, and that it will be effective stopping a threat as quickly as possible. Punch is our easy answer for them,” said Federal Premium’s Chris Laack.

Building off of a need for reliable, accurate and terminally effective ammunition, Federal pulls no stops with delivering its new Punch. Cases will come nickel-finished to enhance lubricity and ensure reliable feeding in modern concealed-carry handguns. Additionally, the use of specifically-formulated powders in conjunction with sealed cases and sensitive, yet safe primers will increase effectiveness when time matters most.

What makes the Punch lineup particularly unique is that it isn't a derivative of Federal Premium's law-enforcement lineup of ammunition. Traditionally, the company's collection of self-defense rounds, such as Hydra-Shok and HST, were offshoots of ammunition developed specifically for law-enforcement use. Because Federal Premium Punch was developed from the start as a consumer ammunition lineup, the bullets aren't overbuilt to meet the additional penetration needs required by police performance protocols. Instead, Federal Premium Punch is purpose-built for close-range encounters through heavy clothing, which typifies the kind of defensive scenarios in which most armed citizens will find themselves.
