Having the correct ammunition for the task at hand is important, and that’s something the team at Federal Premium understands. The renowned ammo maker designs and produces a full line of ammunition for everything from training to self-defense to hunting.

Federal engineers designed both Punch ammunition and the new 30 Super Carry cartridge to be ideal for self-defense applications. The Punch line is known to be a reliable defensive load capable of fantastic accuracy and producing substantial wound cavities, and 30 Super Carry has come on the scene as a solid defensive caliber. These two products together deliver a load that’s easier to shoot accurately and effective on target. This makes Punch 30 Super Carry a fantastic option for defensive shooters.

The company’s Gold Medal Action Pistol ammunition is designed to help shooters compete at the highest level; this ammo line is specifically made for action shooting sports. It’s available in 9x19mm Luger and 40 Smith & Wesson and delivers accuracy and consistency that far outdoes Federal’s original Gold Medal line. And, of course, it’s loaded to power-factor requirements. Thanks to a fully encapsulated FMJ bullet and Catalyst lead-free primer, this ammunition also shoots more cleanly.

On the training side, Federal has Train + Protect in 10mm Auto. The company states this is a full-power offering that features their VHP bullet for precise performance at the range and consistent expansion on impact.
