In celebration of Federal Ammunition’s 100th anniversary, the company is releasing special-edition packaging that honors classic Federal center-fire rifle products, along with four commemorative shotshell packages.

The commemorative rifle packaging, circa 1963, will be available in limited quantities. As for the center-fire loads themselves, they retain the features and performance of their modern Federal Power-Shok equivalent. Calibers included in the 100-year anniversary packaging include .30-30 Win., .30-06 Springfield and .45-70 Govt.
