The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has awarded Federal Premium a major ammunition contract that provides for up to 2,227,500 shells of 12-ga. 2-3/4”, 00 Buckshot (Reduced Recoil) duty ammunition to multiple Department of Homeland Security law enforcement components and other federal agencies for up to five years (starting in 2019). This contract will provide the organization’s agents and officers with 12-ga. Tactical Buckshot duty ammunition.

“We are proud to provide the highest quality duty ammunition to DHS agents in the field,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “Officers in the field require the highest quality ammunition at their disposal, in their vigilant fight to protect our freedoms. Federal Tactical ammunition ensures the highest performance threshold, and absolute officer confidence in terminal performance.”

Federal is one of the world’s leading manufacturers in Tactical and Law Enforcement shotgun, rifle and handgun training ammunition. The ammunition awarded in this contract is similar to Federal’s LE133 00 load. This Federal Law Enforcement shotgun ammo features a FliteControl wad. Tactical Buckshot also features copper-plated shot and recoil reduction that, when combined with the FliteControl wad, result in a dependable and predictable pattern performance.

ICE, which was created in 2003, is tasked with promoting homeland security and safety, as well as enforcing federal laws governing border control, immigration, customs and trade. The agency has more than 20,000 employees in more than 400 stateside offices and 46 foreign countries. ICE executes its mission through the enforcement of more than 400 federal statutes, and focuses on immigration enforcement, terrorism prevention and combating the illegal movement of people and trade.
