With the introduction of Federal Premium's HammerDown ammo, lever-action hunters have a cartridge designed specifically to maximize their effectiveness in the field.
Whether for range use, personal defense or hunting, Federal’s new Shorty shotshells pack a similar punch to their bigger brothers in a small, 1¾-inch shell. Loaded with No. 8 shot, No. 4 buckshot or a rifled slug, there’s a reduced-recoil Shorty for you.
Some shooters call Federal Premium’s new .224 Valkyrie, a “.223 on steroids.” While that may sound cliché, the point is this new cartridge is the world’s first supersonic, 1,300-yard cartridge designed for AR-15s.
Federal Premium's Trophy Copper line of ammunition has been a staple in the hunting industry since its introduction, so it came as no surprise when the company added a 6.5 Creedmoor offering to the stable earlier this year.
Federal Premium has announced the arrival of its new Edge TLR product line, a dedicated series of long-range hunting ammunition. Using a polymer-tipped, boat tail bullet, with a small lead core at the front, the TLR bullet has shown to give consistent expansion at distances out to 900 yards, and while that is an extreme distance for a hunting bullet, it’s nice to know that even at lower velocities you’ll get good performance.
