Federal Ammunition Introduce FireStick to Revolutionize Hunting with Muzzleloaders

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- As long as there have been muzzleloading firearms, their shooters have been burdened by reliability, consistency, and safety concerns. The new Federal Premium FireStick solves those issues. It is the main component of a whole new ignition system that uses an encapsulated propellant charge inserted from the breech, with the bullet loaded from the muzzle. The result is a safer, cleaner, more convenient, and reliable way to hunt with a muzzleloader. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive at dealers.

The FireStick charge is completely impervious to moisture. It features clean-burning Hodgdon Triple Eight powder and is loaded to the same tight tolerances as other Federal Premium factory ammunition. This ensures shot-to-shot consistency and accuracy that muzzleloaders have never experienced before. FireStick can be removed quickly, simply and safely by slipping it out of the action—there’s no need to fire the rifle to unload it.

“The primary benefit of the FireStick is best-in-class safety. Its design allows for a hunter to quickly and easily uninstall it whenever needed, such as to cross a fence, climb into a treestand, enter a blind, or ride in a vehicle,” said Federal Muzzleloader Product Manager Dan Compton. “It also delivers a safer shooting experience because using factory-controlled, precision-measured, pre-filled powder charges eliminates the risk of accidentally over-charging a rifle to dangerous levels.”

Features & Benefits

  • Polymer charge filled with clean-burning Hodgdon Triple Eight powder
  • Charges from the breech of Traditions NitroFire rifle
  • Bullet loads from the muzzle
  • Totally impervious to moisture and the elements
  • Same tight tolerances and quality controls as loaded ammunition
  • Fast, effortless loading and unloading
  • Shooter inserts 209 shotgun primer (not included)

The FireStick can be used with the shooter’s choice of bullets and primers. It is the perfect match for Federal Premium Trophy Copper or Lead Tipped muzzleloader bullets and 209 Muzzleloading Primers. Currently, the FireStick is only compatible with the new NitroFire rifle from Traditions. Initially, FireStick will be available from dealers of Federal Ammunition and Traditions Firearms.

I have checked with the FWC and this is not legal for use during the Muzzleloading season in Florida

So why can’t I just stuff the ball/bullet in first, push this in behind it, and have a regular gun?

Don’t see why not, but legally it’s no longer a muzzleloader. I suspect will not be permitted by fish and game during Muzzleloading seasons.

Because there is a bore diameter restriction between the Fire Stick and the projectile.

Just think how many of these you’d sell if they were sized to 20/12ga and folks didn’t have to buy extra stuff

So. A muzzleloading breechloader. Isn’t it amazing how silly legal restrictions can lead people to create silly products to match?

“The FireStick charge is completely impervious to moisture. It features clean-burning Hodgdon Triple Eight powder”

Think that should read Hodgdon Tripple Seven,unless things have changed at Hodgdon.

BTW a rather neat idea.
