SHOT Show 2020: Federal Premium HammerDown

by
posted on January 25, 2020
Federal Premium launched its all-new HammerDown ammunition in 2020, which is designed specifically for the time-tested lever-action rifle. At the core of Federal's HammerDown loads is an purpose-built formula that ensures heightened performance from standard lever-action rifle barrel lengths. The rounds also feature bullets, cases and cartridge designs that are optimized for trouble-free feeding through tube magazines.

For the January launch of the company's HammerDown product line, Federal selected the most popular lever-action rifle calibers. This includes .327 Federal Mag., .357 Mag., 44 Mag., .45 Colt, .30-30 Win., and 45-70 Government. The .35 Rem. cartridge will come soon after the initial product launch, and Federal has plans to expand the lineup in the future.
