Ammo Packages

In honor of its 100th anniversary, Federal Premium is offering a number of limited-edition commemorative ammunition packages in popular handgun, rifle and shotshell chamberings.

For handguns, Federal offers two retro packages, one 1960s-era Monark Match load and one 1980s Hydra-Shok. Both options are offered in .45 ACP. Special-edition rifle packaging will harken back to those boxes used in 1963, with loads equivalent to the company’s modern-day Power-Shok.

Rifle cartridges are available in .30-30 Win., .30-’06 Sprg. and .45-70 Gov’t. Four retro, 25-count shotshell boxes (shown) will also be offered, all in 12 gauge, throughout 2022.

Prices range from $11 to $68, depending on selection. For more information, please visit federalpremium.com
