Federal Cartridge was founded by Charles Horn in 1922. In the 1920’s it was possible to sell ammunition in gas stations at and barber shops – which would certainly be convenient today – and that’s how Federal gained momentum in its early days. Before long they’d been offered a government contract, and the government ended up awarding them a contract to build what became the Twin City Ordnance Plant. Federal played a major role supplying ammo during World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam, and their actions earned them an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. They’re a true American company, and they’ve always taken pride in that.
This particular Federal-made ammunition is for your 9mm, which is another part of America’s last century of firearm’s history. The 9mm came around in 1902, and ended up being the standard issue for police departments all over the country for 70 years. Even today it remains a favorite and just might be the most common self-defense cartridge out there. If you carry your 9mm for self-defense purposes, you know the importance of shot placement – and quality defense rounds. Federal manufactured these defense rounds for one of their government contracts, so they’re made to an incredibly high standard. This is the overstock, so it’s being offered to the general public. Don’t pass up this opportunity.
115 grain makes these lightweight rounds for the 9mm cartridge. These are JHPs and expand immediately upon impact; their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullet to penetrate more fully and creating a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and muzzle energy of 326 foot-pounds. These are good quality defense rounds. You get 50 rounds in this single box, which is just enough to keep your gun ready and still fire a few rounds down-range to get an idea of their greater power. Federal manufactures their ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Get your order in now before someone else beats you to it.
