<strong>Our brands have a rich, long-standing heritage, such as Federal Premium, founded in 1922 and Bushnell, founded in 1948. We believe this brand heritage and a series of acquisitions support our mission to bring the world outside and achieve rugged independence in all activities.</strong>

Federal Premium Ammunition

Technology is the lifeblood of Federal Ammunition, and it&rsquo;s been pumping through our veins since 1922. That&rsquo;s when our founding president, Charles L. Horn, started a culture of innovation that has guided everything we&rsquo;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.
