Charles Horn took over a six-year-old failing plant in 1922 and immediately founded the Federal Cartridge Company in its stead. His plan was simple: sell ammunition out of area barber shops and gas stations, and it worked like a charm. Over the years Federal has had a number of highlights including playing an important role supplying ammunition to our military in World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam, and they’ve also watched as Olympic marksmen have used Federal ammunition win gold, bronze, and silver medals. For nearly 100 years Federal has flourished and we can only hope they continue to flourish for another 100 years.
These particular Federal rounds are made specifically for your 7.62x39mm-chambered rifle. They’re 123 grain, making them relatively lightweight, so they’re going to travel down-range at even greater speeds than the heavier rounds are capable of and hit with enormous force. These are Soft Point rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact, penetrating as they mushroom to create a devastating wound track. Each round flies down-range with a muzzle velocity of 2300 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1445 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for hunting game up to the size of deer and can also be used for target practice and plinking.
There are 20 rounds in this box of Federal ammunition. With 20 rounds you can give your rifle a light snack and find out why Federal ammunition has gained and maintained such incredible popularity over the years. Federal produces these rounds in new-production, non-corrosive, brass cases with boxer primer, so you can police your spent brass, reload it, and get right back to feeding your rifle. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, according to precise standards. Don’t waste another moment: order now and find out what your 7.62x39mm-chambered firearm is truly capable of doing to a stationary target.
