New Loads in Federal’s “Train + Protect” Line of Ammo


New Loads in Federal’s “Train + Protect” Line of Ammo

Federal’s “Train + Protect” ammunition line is being expanded to include more cartridges. Previously available in 9mm Luger, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP, this ammo is loaded with hollowpoint bullets but is priced lower than “premium” defensive ammo, so you can afford to practice with the same stuff you carry for self defense.

Pictured above is the new load and bullet in 380 ACP.

From the press release:

Federal has made it easier than ever to honor your birthright to bear arms with three new Train + Protect loads in 380 Auto, 85-grain; 357 Magnum, 125-grain; and 38 Special, 158-grain. Shipments of this product have begun to arrive at dealers.
