100-Year Celebration Content Added to the Federal Ammunition Website: The Horn Era and Federal Fusion

As part of the 100-year anniversary celebration, Federal Ammunition is featuring monthly online content celebrating Federal’s rich history. The month of September highlighted the ownership era of Charles L. Horn and the Federal Fusion Hunting Loads. Content can be found on the 100-year anniversary website: A Century Of Authority (

“The End of the Horn Era and an Ownership Journey” follows the management journey from founder and president, Charles L. Horn, to Vista Outdoor. Charles Horn was known for being a businessman that cared for his employees and the town of Anoka, Minnesota. From making sure Federal Ammunition facilities were cared for at a high standard to many donations to local organizations, Charles Horn set the tone for Federal Ammunition for decades to come.  

“In the nearly 50 years since Charles L. Horn has stepped down from the company a much has changed, but much has stayed the same,” said Jason Nash, Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing. “Federal Ammunition is still run by sound leaders and dedicated employees and our commitment to give back to the local and shooting/hunting communities remains strong.” 

Covering the success of one of Federal’s most popular hunting loads, “Federal Fusion Hunting Loads” covers the creation, innovation, and successful performance of the Fusion bullet. Launched in 2005, the Fusion line boasts a lead alloy core that is precision plated with a uniform thickness of copper and then formed into a final shape. 

“Federal Fusion ammunition showcases how Federal Ammunition can produce a bonded bullet that doesn’t affect accuracy,” said Nash. “The success in the field of the Fusion line is why it’s available in so many calibers from .223 to the large calibers taken on safari’s and nearly everything in-between.” 

Each month through the end of 2022, Federal Ammunition will be uploading additional content focused on the rich history of this American ammunition company.

In addition to the monthly online content, Federal Ammunition has released a 244-page book preserving the company’s history. Federal Ammunition: The First Hundred Years can be found online: Buy Federal The First 100 Years for USD 59.99 | Federal Ammunition (
