In 1922 Charles Horn took over a failing 6-year-old factory. He approached turning the factory into a success from a simple marketing standpoint by distributing their products in grocery stores, barber shops, and gas stations, and he was rewarded with almost immediate success. Over the years the company has seen many successes including being awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence for their part producing ammunition for the war effort and seeing Olympic shooters win gold, bronze, and silver medals using their ammunition. Today Federal has been in business for nearly 100 years and their ammunition quite literally speaks for itself with each reliable “bang.”
These Federal rounds are for your .223 Remington. At 62 grain these are pretty lightweight rounds, and that means they’ll leave the barrel of your rifle at fantastic speeds. They’re Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJBT) rounds, and that means they’re not going to expand on impact. Their BTs help them maintain a more balanced trajectory and resist crosswinds, which makes them a nice choice for working on your long-range skills. Each round flies down-range at the impressive muzzle velocity of 3020 feet per second and impacts targets with stunning force at a muzzle energy of 1255 foot-pounds. This ammunition is made for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
When you order this single box of Federal ammunition you get 500 target rounds. You’re going to have a nice supply of ammo for honing your marksmanship, and to make it even better Federal produces this ammunition in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent brass, reload, and head right on back to the range. If that’s not a great deal, we don’t know what is. Federal manufactures ammunition at their century-old plant in Anoka, Minnesota, and all ammunition must adhere to stringent expectations. Just imagine how much your skills could improve 500 rounds from now. Order now, and make every round count.
