In 1922, Charles Horn took over a floundering company and founded Federal Cartridge Corporation. He got the company started back up by distributing their products in barber shops, filling stations, and grocery stores, and the company began to flourish in record time. The military awarded them a contract to build and operate what would become known as the Twin City Ordnance Plant; over the years, Federal was actively involved in furthering the war effort for World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam. Their superior production of materials resulted in their being awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence, and, in fact, Federal has built their entire reputation on excellence.
These are light 115 grain rounds, and thanks to their lighter weight they fly down-range with impressive speed. They’re FMJ rounds, so they don’t expand but simply impact, penetrate, and continue going; target rounds can travel long distances before stopping, so having a good backstop is a must. Each of these rounds zooms to your target with a muzzle velocity of 1181 feet per second and punches through with muzzle energy of 355 foot-pounds. This ammunition is made for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Federal manufactures these rounds in new-production brass cases with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded, and they’re non-corrosive, which extends the life of your gun.
You get 500 rounds in this box of ammunition from Federal. With this box of ammo your 9mm doesn’t just get a snack, it gets a hearty meal. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. High-quality components are used in this ammunition and it’s loaded to SAAMI specifications. Of the many drills you can practice with this 500-round box, consider the Mozambique Drill, which involves firing two rounds to center mass with a follow-up head shot. With time and practice you can execute this drill with stunning speed, even starting with your weapon holstered; it’s an excellent skill to master for self-defense purposes. Feed your gun high-quality American-made ammunition; buy Federal.
