- Q & A
In 1922 Charles Horn came across a six-year-old factory that was failing and decided he could turn things around. He refounded it as the Federal Cartridge Company and implemented a marketing plan that involved selling ammunition in barber shops, gas stations, and grocery stores. His methods worked, and before long Federal was well-known, so well-known they were offered a government contract to build and operate what is now known as the Twin City Ordnance Plant. Such was Federal’s dedication to producing ammunition for our nation’s military that they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence, and they continue to operate on that same level of dedication to quality and performance.
These Federal rounds are made for your .44 Magnum. At 240 grain these are moderately weighted rounds for the cartridge size but heavy overall; these rounds will strike targets with significant force, creating quite a hole on impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullets to penetrate more fully and create a larger, more catastrophic wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1180 feet per second and a stunning muzzle energy of 742 foot pounds. This ammunition is specifically made for self-defense use.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Federal you get 20 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speed loaders loaded and ready for self-defense. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so if you want to ensure accuracy and placement, you’re going to want extra ammunition for target practice. Someday your life or the lives of those you love could depend on how much you practiced, so take the time for some dedicated work on your marksmanship. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Place your order now and keep your gun loaded and ready for the worst-case scenario, because it pays to be prepared.
