Technology is the lifeblood of Federal Ammunition since 1922. Founding president, Charles L. Horn, started a culture of innovation that has guided Federal for nearly a century, turning a company that began humbly in Anoka, Minnesota, into one of the world's largest producers of sporting ammunition. It’s led to the development of thousands of specialized, high-quality shotshell, centerfire and rimfire loads for hunters and shooters. It’s instilled manufacturing and quality control processes that have made Federal ammunition one of the most trusted in the industry
