Federal Premium commemorates 10 years of providing American Eagle brand Lake City Ammunition to consumers, introducing ammo boxes with a patriotic theme.

Featuring red, white and blue,  the ammunition comes in 62-grain 5.56x45mm FMJ, 618-grain .50 BMG Tactical Tracer and 660 grain 50 BMG FMJ. Manufatured in the Lake City Army Ammunition plant, the ammo offerings are designed specifically for modern sporting rifles with mil-spec LCAAP bullets and brass. Ideal for target shooting. Federal Premium says the LAACP ammo is both accurate and reliable.

The Lake City plant is U.S. government owned and contractor-operated plant located in Missouri. First established in 1941, it was created to manufacture and test small caliber ammunition for the U.S. Army. Now, LAACP is the largest producer of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Armed Forces.

Federal says its decade long relationship with LAACP has enabled the ammunition maker to bring both quantity and quality ammo to consumers.

“For 10 years, Federal has been working hand-in-hand with the Lake City Army Ammunition plant, fueling the shooting sports and American freedom with the industry’s most consistent, reliable and affordable small arms rounds,” Federal Premium said in a statement. “With the capacity to produce millions of rounds per day, all with Lake City’s famed mil-spec brass and bullets, the facility ensures Federal continues to provide its customers with the ammunition they need and the quality they expect.”

No word yet on price point for the 10th anniversary boxes.
