In 1922 Charles Horn took over a failing six-year-old factory, re-founding it as the Federal Cartridge Company. He felt he could make the company a success by starting with a simple marketing plan and set about selling ammunition in barber shops, grocery stores, and gas stations – and it worked. Before long Federal was awarded a government contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant, an endeavor which they ended up earning an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Over the years the company has also seen successes such as the use of their ammunition by Olympic shooters who have won gold, silver, and bronze medals. Today Federal is known and respected for producing quality, reliable ammunition with frequent additions of innovative rounds to their line.
These particular Federal rounds are for your .22LR. At 38 grain they’re both lightweight and within the standard weight range for the cartridge size; they’ll zip down-range at incredibly speeds. These are Copper-Plated Hollow Point (CPHP) rounds and so will expand slightly on impact. And since they’re CP they keep the air cleaner during target practice and also keep your gun cleaner, which means better performance overall. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1280 feet per second and muzzle energy of 138 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for varmint and pest control and can also be used for target practice and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition from Federal you get 5000 rounds, which we can’t help but think is pretty awesome. With 5000 rounds you can do some serious shooting whether you’re going after squirrels and gophers or punching holes in stationary targets. And, of course, .22LR is a great caliber for teaching new shooters the ropes, and with this much ammo you’ll have enough left over to spend some time teaching. Federal manufactures ammunition at their established factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to exacting standards. If you want to keep your gun well-fed, you want these quality American-made rounds, so get your order in before someone else beats you to it.
