- Q & A
In 1922 Charles Horn visited a failing six-year-old factory and decided to take over. He re-founded the company as the Federal Cartridge Company and began an aggressive marketing campaign, placing ammunition in barber shops, grocery stores, and gas stations. His plan was a success, and before long Federal was given a government contract to build and run the Twin City Ordnance Plant. Federal kept our nation’s military supplied with quality ammunition through multiple engagements, and their dedication was so impressive they were awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Today that dedication remains and they’re known for producing quality, reliable ammunition for shooters around the world.
These Federal rounds are made for your .45 ACP. At 230 grain they’re considered heavy rounds, capable of hammering into targets with serious force, and although they may travel a bit more slowly than their lighter counterparts, the trade-off for greater power is worth it. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. The jackets control expansion, allowing bullets to penetrate more deeply and create a bigger, more devastating wound track. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense use.
There are 20 rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. That’s just enough to keep your gun and spare magazine loaded and ready for personal protection purposes. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so if you want to be confident in your placement, practice with your chosen defense rounds. Someday your life or the lives of your loved ones may depend on whether or not you trained sufficiently, so why cut corners? Federal manufactures these rounds at their established factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now, and prepare to defend yourself.
