Federal Premium Ammunition recently announced that it will sponsor the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). The new alliance will supports the organization’s matches, new shooter recruitment efforts of more than 445 affiliated local clubs and 30,000 members nationwide.

“USPSA shooters demand very specific things from their ammunition. It needs to be accurate, consistent, reliable, and meet power factor requirements,” said Federal Premium Product Line Manager Justin Johnson. “Until the launch of Syntech Action Pistol, reloading was the preferred way to achieve all of the above. With our factory-loaded ammunition, shooters have a simple, convenient and better solution.”

Founded in 1984, the USPSA is the national governing body of competitive practical shooting in the U.S. under the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). The USPSA provides challenging competitive opportunities that pit participants against shooters of similar skill levels in different divisions geared to various handguns, rifles, and shotguns. The association welcomes new shooters of all ages and abilities, and offers club matches all over the country―including Steel Challenge events.

Johnson noted that the USPSA partnership greatly increases Federal Premium backing of this sport through event and shooter sponsorship. “USPSA is a huge piece of the target shooting market,” he said. “This is a monumental leap forward for both organizations, and we are excited to be on the ground floor for continued greatness to come.”

“This revolutionary opportunity creates a lower barrier to entry for new shooters to participate in the shooting sports, while giving existing USPSA shooters alternatives to reloading and sourcing match ammunition,” said Mike Foley, president and CEO of USPSA. “The power factor requirements for multiple USPSA divisions can be met with ammunition available from retailers instead of custom loads requiring a larger investments in time and equipment. USPSA will gain market recognition in mainstream sporting goods stores, and this relationship provides additional funding for education and event promotion. To say the least, we are extremely excited to be working with Federal Premium Ammunition.”
