9mm Micro HST

Personal Defense® Handgun

9mm Luger Micro HST®

Subcompact handguns' sleek, lightweight designs make them an ideal choice for concealed carry. To perform to their peak, these firearms need the right ammunition: Federal Premium® Personal Defense® Micro HST®. The line, introduced in 2015 with the 380 Micro HST, provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance with bullet weights and propellants optimized for the most efficient cycling and accuracy in subcompact handguns. For 2016, the line has expanded to include a 150-grain 9mm Luger load.

Features & Benefits
• New 9mm Luger load for micro-size concealed carry pistols
• Heavy bullet and lower velocity decreases felt recoil and noise
• Expanded diameter and weight retention produce the desired penetration for personal defense situations, without over-penetrating
• Bullet nose profile, nickel-plated case and Federal primer provide the ultimate in function and reliability in semi-automatic handguns
• Clean-burning, low-flash propellants

3rd DEGREE® 20 GAUGE

TARGET SHOOTING

American Eagle® Syntech™

The exclusive polymer coating in American Eagle Syntech prevents harsh metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with clean-burning powders and the Catalyst™ lead-free primer, Syntech loads keep your gun cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better.

Features & Benefits
• Polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact in the bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling, while extending barrel life
• Exclusive primer formulation provides reliable, consistent ignition
• Clean-burning propellants minimize residue and fouling
• Significantly reduces the required frequency of cleaning
• Absence of a copper jacket minimizes splash-back on steel targets
• Less perceived recoil

3rd DEGREE® 20 GAUGE

TURKEY

3rd DEGREE® 20 GAUGE

Last year, Federal Premium® redefined how turkey shotshells are supposed to perform with the introduction of 3rd Degree. Rather than simply pattern tightly like conventional loads, 3rd Degree uses a multi-shot, three-stage payload to deliver larger, more forgiving patterns at close range, while still providing deadly performance at long distance. The pattern of No. 5 Premium lead, No. 6 FLITESTOPPER® lead and No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT® shot is maximized by the FLITECONTROL® wad, which opens from the rear and stays with the shot column longer than conventional wads for full, consistent patterns.

Features & Benefits
•New 20-gauge offering
•Three-stage payload creates optimal patterns for the entire range spectrum
•20 percent No. 6 FLITESTOPPER pellets for forgiving close-range patterns
•40 percent copper-plated No. 5 lead for lethal performance at mid-range
•40 percent HEAVYWEIGHT for dense, high-energy patterns at 40-plus yards
•FLITECONTROL wad maximizes the flight characteristics of all three shot types
•A portion of the proceeds are donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation



FUSION® MSR 90-GRAIN 6.8 SPC

CENTERFIRE RIFLE

FUSION® MSR 90-GRAIN 6.8 SPC

Modern sporting rifles (MSRs) are the most adaptable class of firearms in history, handling everything from tactical applications to elk hunting. Fusion MSR loads provide that same degree of customization in ammunition. The cartridges are specifically designed for hunting, performing to their ballistic peak through 16-inch barrels for AR15 platforms and 20-inch barrels for AR10 platforms. The molecularly fused bullet transfers tremendous energy on impact for deadly knockdown power. Look for Fusion MSR in five loads, including the new, 90-grain 6.8 SPC.

Features & Benefits
•New 90-grain 6.8 SPC load
•Primer, propellant, bullet and case are optimized for hunting in MSR actions
•Flawless feeding and function
•Skived bullet tip for long-range expansion
•Molecularly-fused jacket around a pressure-formed core produces excellent accuracy



AMERICAN EAGLE® VARMINT & PREDATOR

CENTERFIRE RIFLE

AMERICAN EAGLE® VARMINT & PREDATOR

Combine accuracy, consistency, reliable performance on target and an affordable price tag, and the result is the perfect round for the avid varmint hunter. New American Eagle Varmint & Predator loads feature reloadable brass and Federal® primers with a Tipped Varmint or jacketed hollow-point bullet, depending on caliber. Both designs expand explosively on impact for maximum lethality. American Eagle Varmint & Predator loads are offered in 40- or 50-count bulk packs perfect for high-volume shooting.

Features & Benefits
•Consistent, accurate performance
•Explosive expansion on impact
•Consistent primers
•Reliable feeding and function
•Highly reloadable brass cases
•Bulk packs reduce in-the-field waste



Woodleigh®Hydro Solid

Muzzleloading

Lead Muzzleloader Bullet

Federal Premium® transformed muzzleloader capabilities in 2015 with the B.O.R. Lock MZ™ System and the Trophy Copper Muzzleloader Bullet. For 2016, that technology expands to include a new hard-hitting lead version. Like its predecessor, it provides outstanding accuracy in a non-sabot design that's easy to load, scrubs fouling from the breech and ensures consistent bullet seating. The system's polymer cup is attached to the bullet base, and is pushed forward onto raised bands along the bullet shank during ignition. This expands the cup's diameter, engaging the rifling and optimizing velocity and accuracy. The rear of the B.O.R. Lock MZ cup features a hard, fiber-reinforced polymer ring that scours fouling from the breech as the bullet is pushed into place. This decreases the need to clean between shots and makes it easy to seat the bullet at the exact same depth for every shot. Because there's no bulky sabot, required loading force averages about half that of most sabot bullets.

Features & Benefits
•B.O.R. Lock MZ System: Expanding polymer base cup engages rifling and seals the bore for extraordinary velocity and accuracy
•Required loading force averages about half that of most sabots
•Fouling-cutting ring scours powder residue from the breech as the bullet is loaded, resulting in consistent seating and reducing the need to clean between shots
•Tough, hard-hitting lead bullet with a polymer tip
