3rd Degree™

As turkey loads have been engineered to pattern more tightly and reach farther, they have also become less forgiving at close range, leading to missed birds. New Federal Premium® 3rd Degree™ uses a multi-shot, three-stage payload to deliver lethal patterns at any range. The leading section of the payload-20 percent of the total pellet count-is made up of No. 6 nickel-plated FLITESTOPPER® lead. Because these pellets release from the wad first and have a deadly cutting ring, they disperse quickly and create a larger effective pattern inside of 20 yards than standard loads. The next 40 percent of the load is copper-plated No. 5 lead shot, which creates a dense, even pattern at moderate ranges. The final 40 percent of 3rd Degree's payload consists of No. 7 HEAVYWEIGHT® pellets. The tungsten-iron material's high density gives the shot more energy than No. 5 lead shot at 40 yards and beyond. Plus, its increased pellet count results in more hits on target at long range. The pattern 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
•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 the most 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
•1,250 fps muzzle velocity
•A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to the National Wild Turkey Federation

Centerfire Rifle

Vital•Shok® Trophy Bonded® Tip

The Vital•Shok® Trophy Bonded® Tip has proven itself as one of the most effective cartridges available. The bullet retains more than 90 percent of its weight, penetrates deep, and shoots flat and accurately thanks to its high ballistic coefficient. The solid copper shank crushes bone, and exterior skiving on the nickel-plated bullet ensures optimum expansion at any range. The tough, bonded construction makes the new 223 Rem. load a perfect choice for medium-size game like antelope and deer.

Features & Benefits
•New 223 Rem. load perfectly suited to medium-size game
•Built on the Trophy Bonded® Bear Claw® platform
•Neon polymer tip and boat-tail design for flat trajectory and accuracy
•Exterior skiving for optimum expansion
•Nickel-plated case and bullet for easy extraction and corrosion protection

Centerfire Rifle

Vital•Shok® Trophy® Copper

Federal Premium® has breathed life into the venerable 30-30 Win. cartridge with a new Trophy® Copper rifle load. Like the entire Vital•Shok® Trophy Copper line, the polymer-tipped offering provides devastating downrange performance. It features a tipped bullet cavity for consistent expansion across a broad range of velocities, a grooved bullet shank for increased accuracy across a wider range of firearms, and copper-alloy construction that achieves up to 99 percent weight retention—even after tremendous expansion. The nickel-plated case prevents corrosion and aids in easier, faster extraction from the chamber. Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits
•Copper-alloy construction retains up to 99 percent of its weight for the deepest penetration in an expanding bullet
•Tipped bullet cavity is optimized for expansion across a broad velocity range
•Grooved bullet shank for increased accuracy across a wide range of firearms
•Polymer tip increases the ballistic coefficient for higher downrange velocity and energy, with less bullet drop

Rimfire Rifle

American Eagle® 17 Win. Super Magnum

The American Eagle® 17 Win. Super Magnum delivers velocities of 3,000 fps with a 20-grain bullet—a speed that's unmatched among rimfire cartridges. That velocity, coupled with the tipped bullet design, offers flat trajectories and tremendous downrange energy perfect for long-range varmint hunting.

Features & Benefits
•3,000 fps muzzle velocity
•Flat trajectory
•High-energy rimfire load
•20-grain tipped varmint bullet for explosive expansion


Vital•Shok® High Density®

Vital•Shok® at its nine-pellet 00 buck tungsten-alloy payload and 1,600 fps muzzle velocity give it superior stopping power compared to lead loads. For 2015, Federal Premium® has made High Density buckshot available to the general public. Because its payload is lighter than equivalent lead loads, it produces less felt recoil, yet offers higher velocities and more downrange energy. The FLITECONTROL® wad ensures consistent, deadly patterns, making High Density an excellent choice for predators, hogs and more.

Features & Benefits
•12 Gauge 2 3/4" 9 pellet High Density 00 buckshot
•Tungsten-alloy pellet construction
•1,600 fps muzzle velocity
•FLITECONTROL wad produces tight, lethal patterns
•Proven choice of hog-control specialists
•Manageable recoil
•Higher velocities and more downrange energy than equivalent lead payloads


Personal Defense® HST®

In 2013, Federal Premium® made law enforcement's top duty round available to the public, creating the ultimate personal defense load: HST®. This year, the product line is even stronger thanks to a new load in 380 Auto—an excellent option for concealed carry pistols. HST provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and terminal performance that raise the bar for micro-size handguns. Its specially designed hollow point won't plug, and the jacket and core hold together to provide almost 100 percent weight retention. The construction ensures micro-size handguns deliver the power needed for personal defense situations.

Features & Benefits
•New 380 Auto load for micro-size concealed carry pistols
•Specially designed hollow point expands reliably
•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

Vital•Shok® Trophy Bonded® 10mm Auto

The new Vital•Shok® Trophy Bonded® 10mm Auto is a full-power load that takes complete advantage of the caliber's true capability. While most 10mm loads are watered down to produce ballistics similar to those of the 40 S&W, this cartridge offers the muscle needed for both big game hunting and personal protection. Its new Trophy Bonded Jacketed Soft Point bullet design makes the load even more effective. Based on the proven Trophy Bonded® Bear Claw® rifle bullet, its heavy jacket features a formed inner profile that preprograms and controls expansion to ensure deep penetration.

Features & Benefits
•Full-power 10mm Auto load provides superior downrange energy
•1275 fps muzzle velocity
•Trophy Bonded JSP bullet provides consistent expansion and deep penetration
•Nickel-plated case for easy extraction

Trophy® Copper Muzzleloading Bullet

Federal Premium® is redefining modern in-line performance with the all-new Trophy® Copper Muzzleloading Bullet. Its exclusive B.O.R. Lock MZ™ System 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 foundation is a polymer cup that's permanently attached to the bullet base. The force of ignition pushes the cup forward onto raised bands along the bullet shank, expanding its diameter. This engages the rifling and seals the bore, 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. Like other projectiles in the proven Trophy Copper line, the copper-alloy bullet features a polymer tip, with a deep, hollow cavity and skiving that allows for consistent, devastating expansion.

Features & Benefits
•B.O.R. Lock MZ System: Expanding polymer base cup engages rifling and seals the bore for extraordinary velocity and accuracy
•Non-sabot design is approved for hunting in most areas
•Trophy Copper bullet features a polymer tip, with a deep, hollow cavity and skiving that ensures consistent expansion
•High ballistic coefficient flattens trajectories and minimizes wind drift
•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
