The Federal Cartridge Company, headquartered in Anoka, Minnesota, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems. The company was founded in 1916 and has since become one of the finest names in the ammunition industry. Today, the company manufactures a complete line of rimfire ammunition, centerfire ammunition and shotshells – they even have a production contract with the United States Military. Federal ammunition has been used during multiple Olympic Games in which the U.S. team brought home gold, silver and bronze medals. Pretty high-quality stuff if you ask me.
Federal 712 .22 LR ammunition is a product from the company's "Game-Shok" sub-brand of ammunition. Federal Game-Shok ammunition is marketed as an effective but affordable line of ammunition developed specifically for hunting. By pairing state-of-the-art loads with revolutionary projectiles, the company is able to produce a cartridge marked by outstanding accuracy, reliability and ballistics. And with a wide range of loads, you are sure to find one that suits your needs. Like all Federal ammunition, Federal 712 .22 LR ammunition is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, which is an interesting aspect of the ammunition in itself. LCAAP is a government-owned, contractor-operated munitions facility that was originally established in 1941 for the manufacture and testing of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army. Since 2001, it has been operated by Alliant Techsystems and is the largest manufacturer of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army.
That said each box of Federal 712 .22 LR ammunition, as noted, contains 50 non-corrosive, brass-cased, rimfire shotshells. Each cartridge contains a 38gr copper-plated hollow point projectile, which is designed to provide for devastating on-target ballistics while retaining nearly 100 percent bullet weight and yielding high muzzle velocities. In fact, this particular load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speeds of up to 1,260 fps.
All Federal rimfire ammunition is manufactured using newly-manufactured, best-in-the-industry brass cases. Additionally, all cartridges are visually inspected for quality assurance purposes prior to leaving the manufacturing plant.
