Federal Premium and Speer were the only two companies to be awarded in all four categories of the recent handgun ammunition bid from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), parent company Vista Outdoor announced this year.
Federal Premium has created a potent new high-capacity 12-ga. defensive option with its Force X2 Shorty load—merging two existing products by introducing the company’s wound-channel-multiplying FX2 buckshot to its lineup of 1¾" Shorty shells.
The last widely popular pistol cartridge intended specifically for concealed carry was the .380 ACP, designed more than 100 years ago by John Moses Browning for the 1908 Colt pistol. I have often looked with mild frustration at the .380 and the ubiquitous 9 mm Luger, our two most common “carry” pistol cartridges.
Federal has been a name in American ammunition production for a century, and today, it is still turning out ammunition for the American sportsman.
Federal Premium expanded its popular HST line of defensive ammunition to include the .357 Mag. and .327 Mag. cartridges.
