Our Story – Federal
Technology is the lifeblood of Federal Ammunition, and it’s been pumping through our veins since 1922. That’s when our founding president, Charles L. Horn, started a culture of innovation that has guided everything we’ve done 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 our ammunition the most trusted in the industry. Every day we manufacture products to enhance our customers’ shooting experiences and provide an ideal choice for any pursuit. It’s what makes us the most complete ammunition company in the business.
Today, we carry on Horn’s vision for quality products and service with the next generation of shooters. With our CEO Chris Metz at the helm, we maintain our position as experts in the science of ammunition production.
