Federal Ammunition has a number of new ammunition offerings for 2022 for hunters highlighted during the annual SHOT Show this week in Las Vegas.

"Being the largest ammunition manufacturer isn’t just boasting. It matters, because it allows Federal to deliver the widest range of new products to our customers every year," said Federal’s President Jason Vanderbrink in a press release announcing new products for 2022.. "This year, Federal will continue to introduce new loads and components to the marketplace. This means hunters and shooters of all stripes can get the new products that best meets their needs and interests."

Here’s a quick look at five new ammo options from Federal for hunting:

Meateater Trophy Copper 6.5 PRC

Meateater Trophy Copper 6.5 PRC

The 6.5 PRC cartridge has earned the respect of elite long-range shooters. Federal combined that performance with its Trophy Copper bullet design to offer hunters an even more effective option. The new 120-grain load provides pinpoint accuracy and aggressive expansion, yet produces limited, manageable recoil. The copper, polymer-tipped bullet retains up to 99 percent of its weight on impact for deep penetration on a wide range of medium game.


HammerDown 444 Marlin, 35 Rem.

HammerDown 444 Marlin, 35 Rem.

The performance and power of HammerDown for hunters who shoot 35 Rem. and 444 Marlin. Velocities are customized to produce superior ballistics and terminal performance through lever-action barrel lengths. Molecularly bonded soft point bullets have been adjusted for the best accuracy and expansion. The geometry of each round’s case, bullet and cartridge ensures flawless cycling through tubular magazine and typical lever-action feeding systems.


Fusion 6.5 PRC

Fusion 6.5 PRC

Fusion was the first rifle ammunition specifically built for deer hunting—and it’s still offering the best expansion and weight retention in its class. It’s an ideal match for the new 6.5 PRC cartridge, which has quickly caught hunters’ attention thanks to its long-range accuracy, flat trajectory and manageable recoil. Paired with the Fusion bullet’s molecularly fused jacket and pressure-formed core, the new load provides tag-filling penetration and stopping power.




Upland Steel With Paper Wad 12 Gauge

Federal Ammunition
Upland Steel With Paper Wad 12 Gauge

More birds and less plastic on the ground. Federal Upland Steel uses the new Paper Wad, cellulose-based filler and a paper gas-sealing over-powder wad to produce effective patterns while significantly reducing the amount of plastic left in the field. Its high velocity makes the most of the one-ounce steel payload.
