FBI Awards Contract for up to $19 Million of Specifically Designed Federal Premium Training Ammunition

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

ANOKA, Minnesota – April 26, 2018 – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has awarded Vista Outdoor a contract to supply FBI and other Federal Government Agencies with a high-performance Federal Premium 9mm handgun training round specifically designed to support their mission.

The IDIQ (indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity) contract, which has four option years, is for up to $19 million in 9mm handgun training rounds. This ammunition is built distinctively to FBI’s specifications using Federal Premium’s precision manufacturing and testing methods, innovative technology, and industry-leading components.

“We are extremely proud of this important contract, which continues Federal Premium’s long-running tradition of supplying law enforcement, military personnel and civilians worldwide with the most reliable ammunition possible,” said Federal Premium President Jason Vanderbrink. “This high-value, optimized training round utilizes a new match-grade bullet designed specifically for the FBI to maximize accuracy, along with Federal Premium’s Catalyst lead-free primer formulation to provide reliable, consistent ignition.”

Since 1922, Federal Premium Ammunition has been a staple for shooters wanting high-quality shotshell, centerfire and rimfire ammunition. The company’s relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation has resulted in numerous technological breakthroughs, such as the patented Catalyst primer used in the new FBI training round.

The extremely clean-burning Catalyst primer creates more uniform and complete propellant combustion, yielding minimal velocity variation and consistent bullet launch for improved accuracy. It is also non-hydrophilic, so it does not attract water molecules like DDNP-based mixes found in most lead-free primers, resulting in better reliability. The Federal Premium proprietary Catalyst primer provides the cleanest, most consistent ignition possible.

Civilians and other Law Enforcement agencies looking for similar high-performance primers in their range ammunition can find it in Federal’s full lineup of lead-free American Eagle and Syntech ammunition. The polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which can shorten barrel life and rob accuracy, while also eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner longer, so you can shoot more – and shoot better.

Federal Premium to Introduce New Ammunition at SHOT Show

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

fedpremium_logo_lg

ANOKA, Minnesota – January 10, 2017 – Federal Premium Ammunition is proud to introduce a suite of new products at the 2017 SHOT Show that continues the company’s long tradition of craftsmanship while promising to change the face of shooting. The introductions include the game-changing Edge TLR all-range rifle loads, 38 Special +P HST Micro, Hunter Match 22 Long Rifle, Gold Medal Grand, redesigned Black Cloud with FLITECONTROL FLEX, and much more. Attendees are encouraged to visit booth 14551 during the show in Las Vegas, Jan. 17-20 to see the entire new product lineup.

Unlike other so-called long-range projectiles that can fail to perform at lower velocities, the Federal Premium Edge TLR uses an exclusive Slipstream polymer tip to trigger expansion at long range. On closer targets, the copper shank and bonded lead core retain weight for consistent, lethal penetration. Ballistics are likewise flawless. Credit the Edge TLR bullet’s sleek boat-tail design, secant ogive and unique AccuChannel grooving, which trim drag to an absolute minimum. Available in 308 Win., 30-06 Spring., 300 Win. Magnum and 300 Win. Short Magnum.

New Federal Premium Hunter Match 22 Long Rifle raises the bar in rimfire, delivering impeccable long-range accuracy and terminal performance. The hollow-point lead bullet is tuned for optimum penetration and expansion out to 100 yards. Plus, high-velocity loading flattens trajectories while packing ample energy to take down any target. A nickel-plated case ensures seamless extraction and inhibits corrosion.

Federal Premium’s Personal Defense HST Micro products provide superior expansion, penetration and terminal performance, with bullet weights and propellants optimized for cycling and accuracy in subcompact concealed-carry handguns. For 2017, the line expands to include a 38 Special +P load with a deeply seated 130-grain bullet that eliminates casing air space for ultra-consistent velocities.

After a decade-long reign as waterfowling’s deadliest load, Federal Premium’s Black Cloud is even better than ever. The new FLITECONTROL FLEX wad improves pattern density and consistency through ported and standard waterfowl chokes, while FLITESTOPPER Steel pellets create massive wound channels. The Catalyst lead-free primer and clean-burning, temperature-stable propellant decrease residue and yield consistent velocities in all hunting conditions. Available in 25 new 12- and 20-gauge loads, including Black Cloud High Velocity and Close Range.
