As part of the 100-year anniversary celebration, Federal Ammunition is featuring monthly online content celebrating Federal’s rich history. The month of November showcased the Premium ammunition product line and the honorary company historian, Doc Fred. Content can be found on the 100-year anniversary website: A Century Of Authority (federalpremium.com).
The life and history of the Federal company historian are documented in the article “Federal’s Doc Fred”. Dr. David Frederickson M.D. or known as “Doc Fred” was never a paid employee of Federal Ammunition but since the late 1960s was a collector of Federal Ammunition packaging and won display awards at ammunition collector shows.
“Without Doc, many parts of Federal’s history would be lost to time,” said Jason Nash, Federal Ammunition Vice President of Marketing. “Doc was an extremely passionate collector of Federal Ammunition and built relationships with company executives and employees. Thanks to his collection we have been able to better document any past product packaging. Generations to come can still enjoy his collections in museums and at the Federal factory buildings.”
The article “Federal Premium Product Line” follows the journey of Federal Ammunition providing hunters and shooters with the finest rifle ammunition. Federal combines the best casings, primers, bullets, plated shot and cleanest burning powder to produce the premium line of ammunition. From 22 LR to shotshells up to the 500 Nitro Express, the line of Federal Premium ammunition covers a wide range of uses.
“The Federal Premium product line has been trusted by hunters and shooters since the 1970s,” said Nash. “Hunters and shooters need the best possible tools to help them in the field and Federal Premium loads fit that need.”
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.
