So, recently at work, one of my LT’s bought a concealable vest from Federal Armament to replace his vest that had been torn up and beat up over almost 20 years. Well, when I went on their sight, I found so many cool things that I kinda geeked out. Well, after talking with their sales team, they sent me out some ammo in 9mm, 40, and 45 ACP, along with some projectiles to reload.
When the package came with the ammo, I felt like I was breaking into Fort Knox, and from that moment, I knew it was a good sign. When I finally got all the way into the box, I found that there was a lot of care put into the way everything was packaged. From there I inspected every single round that was sent for any defects, or damages. Out of 300 rounds, I only found 1 small crack in 1 case for the 45 ACP ammo. I was able to pull the bullet, transfer the primer, powder and bullet into a none damaged case.
When I took it to the range, I found that all of the ammo, especially the 9mm was a dream to shoot. Not to hot, not under powered, just right. My guns loved the ammo that they sent, and I took my time shooting slow so that I could get more time out of each round. The best part was when I collected the brass, and sat down at my bench and reloaded them. The bullets that were sent as well, seemed to work better in my press than some of the other bullets I have been using. Then, the real test came, when it was time for me to requal for my Armed Security license. With the requal you use 48 rounds per string of fire, from 1 yard, to 25 yards, and the highest score is a 240. I did 3 strings of fire,1 with factory Federal ammo, 1 with my normal plated bullets, and 1 with the bullets sent by mike over at Fed Arms. First string was a “practice” where I scored a 232, then the 2nd round was my normal plated ammo I reload, where I got a 236. The last string of fire was with the Fed Arms bullets, where I scored a 239…….yes I am still pissed about pulling that 1 round (was on me not the bullets).
I also found that Fed Arms carries some odd ball stuff like the 50 BMG stuff that most people dream about having in a collection, as well as some very good pricing on rifles, and shotguns, even the body armor. What are you doing still reading this? Get over to Fed Arms now! and tell the sales team I sent you!.
