As the years and decades passed, Federal grew, riding the tide of its own innovation, breaking into centerfire rifle and handgun ammunition, muzzleloading, reloading components and much more. Along the way, this meant not only the development of products, but of entire processes and categories that shaped the industry and how hunters and shooters pursue their sport. Meanwhile, the company put itself on the front lines of conserving not only wildlife and habitat, but also the hunting and shooting heritage. It worked hard to establish and maintain longtime partnerships with some of the most influential
conservation organizations to funnel millions of dollars back into the wild places and shooting sports we hold dear. As Federal approaches its 100th anniversary, technology and innovation continue to drive everything it does. The company carries on Horn’s vision for quality and service with the next generation of shooters. And the proof is in the introduction of products like Terminal Ascent that break new ground every year and make hunters and shooters more successful with every pull of the trigger.
