Each projectile is crimped into a brass casing which is rolled by Federal in-house and primed with a non-corrosive ignition mixture. The round's multi-band bourrelet increases rifling contact and helps to stabilize the bullet while resisting errant deformation; this promotes greater accuracy and raises hit probability on squirrels, rabbits, and similarly sized game animals. Federal has been around since 1922 and is well-known by all kinds of sportsmen and competitors in the shooting community. Their Game-Shock brand is easily recognized is an inexpensive source of dependable hunting ammo.
