Federal Now Selling Ammo by the Bucketful
Russ Chastain 11.21.19
Tired of seeing so much packaging waste when you go to the range and burn up a few hundred rounds of ammo? Or maybe, like myself, you hate to have “pieces” of boxes of ammo lying around, partially full.
Or maybe — just maybe — the idea of a bucket full of gun groceries simply makes you happy somewhere deep down inside. And they stack!
Regardless of what’s causing your handgun ammo itch, Federal Ammunition‘s new ammo buckets are ready and waiting to scratch it for ya. The ammo is their Syntech stuff, designed to be better for indoor ranges and when shooting at hard targets such as steel plates.
They’re offering it in 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP — and they say, “Shipments of this product have been delivered to dealers.”
From the press release:
‘Conventional ammunition causes metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which can shorten barrel life and rob accuracy. The polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents this, while eliminating copper and lead fouling,’ explained Federal Handgun Ammunition Product Manager Chris Laack. ‘Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more and shoot better. The exclusive Catalyst primer provides the cleanest most consistent ignition possible. That’s why it received the 2017 NRA Golden Bullseye Award. And now, we sell it by the bucket full.’
The one-of-a-kind TSJ projectile uses a polymer jacket to eliminate metal fouling and drastically reduce damaging barrel heat and friction. The bullet style also minimizes splash-back on steel targets. Its exclusive Catalyst primer provides hot, reliable ignition without the use of lead. There’s never been a better way to have an epic day at the range.
