Federal Ammunition Makes Big Announcements at the 2019 NRAAM

ANOKA, Minnesota-(Ammoland.com)-Federal Ammunition will unveil unique consumer experiences and innovative products at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 26-28, 2019. Attendees are encouraged to visit booth 4955 to see all its new products and get a sneak peek into the launch of Federal’s revolutionary “Custom Ammo Shop,” coming this summer. Booth visitors can experience it all while enjoying a free coffee sample from one of the brand’s newest partners, Black Rifle Coffee Company (BRCC).

Federal’s lineup of new products includes three loads in 350 Legend: 160-grain Fusion bonded soft point, 180-grain Power-Shok soft point and 180-grain Non-Typical soft point. The cartridge offers higher velocities than any straight-wall deer cartridge, with significantly less recoil than 450 Bushmaster in a compact, maneuverable platform. It’s an ideal fit for both MSRs and bolt-action rifles, penetrates deep and delivers ample energy to take down any buck. Plus, it’s legal for hunting in many areas bottleneck centerfire rifle cartridges are prohibited. The loads will be available this summer in 20-count packs with MSRPs from $26.95 to $32.95.

Federal’s Custom Shop is coming soon and will give consumers the opportunity to order ammunition built specifically to their preferences. Custom Shop ammunition consists of products not listed in the catalog. Several centerfire rifle offerings from a wide selection of bullet and caliber options, as well as shotshell loads including many Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) options for hunting, will be available for the initial launch.

The Custom Shop is scheduled to open for business this summer. Federal asks those not attending the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits to sign-up for its enewsletter for updates on when the Custom Shop will open and for specific options that will be available. Visit the Federal homepage, scroll down to the bottom and click “Get the Latest” to sign up.

Federal also welcomes Black Rifle Coffee Company to its booth. It’s excited to align with the popular brand, which supports the shooting and hunting industry and 2nd Amendment rights. Federal invites attendees to stop by and sample the variety of coffee, shop for roasted beans or other BRCC merchandise, and much more.

Information on new products and services from Federal will be available and on display at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. For more general information on Federal ammunition, visit www.federalpremium.com.

    1. Sounds to me like some of these manufacturers are going out of their way to accommodate GUN and Bullet “BANNERS” !!!!! Shotguns where used for areas by population for years. Sounds like to me that the minute some Banner figures out that the general public can do all the “Hunting” they need with straight wall ammo, that they will be trying to ban bottle neck rounds or military rounds …. OH wait, they already have tried and almost did it !!!! There are countries where you can not own a military round or gun that uses one…. Sounds like they are walking the public right down that path…..
      And everything is sub-sonic or low recoil ammo now… Grow a pair or get a smaller caliber !!!! They still make BB guns you know…
      Yes I know they are trying to get to use rifles in some areas where only shotguns where aloud before, but be careful how it is done…. Either there is room, as is away from population and it is safe for a rifle ( or up to a certain caliber ) or it isn’t … We used a shotgun for hunting deer and everything else years ago !!!!! No straight wall is going to be any safer than a bottle neck of equal power and some people need to educate their legislators about that before it is to late…. If you want to limit calibers of Hunting ammo, do so, but not a class that eliminates any type or style of ammo…. A fragment-able bullet would be safer than a big caliber Solid Straight Wall loaded to the max…. AND Because we all know that any round is going to be loaded (or reloaded) to its maximum (or over its maximum) sooner or later, where is the gain ????
      And other than for “SELLING” purposes, like selling a whole new line of equipment and ammo, are any of these “New and Improved” rounds really that much different or spectacular ????? None I have seen yet …..

      FIRST “Straight Wall Hunting” and then you can only own “Straight Walls” !!!!!!!!
      Sounds like Europe !!!! Sounds like Gun and Ammo control to me !!!!!
      Remember the “Machine Gun” ????? Now “local police” carry them ???? And “WE” can’t even hardly own one, unless one is rich and then it has to be stored away so deep one could not get to it if they really needed it, let alone dare show it in public !!!!!
      Remember “FREEDOM” ???? You probably can’t !!!! AND the little of it you do know is being taken from us right under our noses !!!!!

      BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER: FREEDOM ISN’T FREE !!!!!!

      I heard there was a big break through on apathy awhile back, but nobody cares…………………………………………..

    2. underwood ammo offers 45/70 ammo that is rated at just over 2700 fps. so it beats the 350 but a decent amount and its a 225 grain bullet. sure it wont work in the trap doors but it will work in a marlin. the 350 does have the option to be used in a SA though.

    3. Has anyone else noticed that the 350 Legend is an up date of the 351 WSL? Why not bring back the 351 WSl in an Ar-15 platform? The 350 looks like the 357 Maximum without a rim.
      Lever action manufacturers bring out a lever action in 357 Maximum, and make it work also with 38 Long Colt, 38 Special and 357 Magnum! This would be a great rifle for hogs, deer and black bear. Also a great home defense rifle in areas that have banned semi-autos.

      1. Nothing wrong with the ammo I’ve used. What problems have you had so I can keep an eye out for problems.

      1. Need to seal buckshot so packing doesn’t fall out. Stopped shooting it years ago due to this problem because it was getting in the gun and causing it to jam up. Thought the problem was fixed so started shooting federal again last year. Ended up with more packing in my pocked than in the shell.
