- Q & A
The Federal Cartridge Company was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, who started the company after the one previously at the same location, but owned by someone else, failed. Horn began an aggressive marketing campaign with Federal, selling ammunition everywhere from barber shops to gas stations to grocery stores. His efforts were a success, and before long the name of Federal became not only well-known but respected. The first major contract for Federal came from the government. It was a contract to build and operate what is now known as the Twin City Ordnance Plant, and Federal did so well producing ammunition for our nation’s military they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Today that same dedication remains, and Federal is a solid, trusted presence in the industry.
These Federal rounds are for your .22LR. At 40 grain they’re considered lightweight overall but within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being so lightweight is what gives .22LR its ability to fly down-range at such high speeds as well as its minimal recoil, which makes accuracy easier to attain. These are Copper-Plated Solid rounds and will not expand on impact. Because they’re CP they fire more cleanly than lead nosed rounds and, in fact, firing these through your rifle can help clean out residue from lead rounds. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1240 feet per second. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Federal, you get 50 target rounds. That’s just enough to give your gun a light snack, so if you want more extensive range time, order more than one box. You know you want to. .22LR is a versatile round that can be used for everything from teaching new shooters the ropes of gun use to hunting varmints and pests to good, old-fashioned plinking. Whatever you use yours for, you know it’s easy to burn through a pile of ammo in record time, so make sure you get enough! Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Place your order now, and feed your gun.
