Our Story

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.

Today, we carry on Horn’s vision for quality products and service with the next generation of shooters. We maintain our position as experts in the science of ammunition production. We build superior products that perform at exceptionally high levels, whether the end user is a member of a high school trap team, an athlete competing at the Olympics, a deer hunter, a police officer, or the weekend plinker at the range having fun.
