    Hunter Match

    Rimfire ammunition, after what seems like an eternity to shooters, is finally becoming available again. Federal Premium is growing their already expansive line of rimfire offerings with some more bulk packs and more premium hunting rounds with Hunter Match.

    The .22 long rifle bulk packs come in two different varieties deemed “Federal 22 Long Rifle Range & Field.” Both bulk packs come in a 275-count package. The specifications for both can be seen below:

    • .22 Long Rifle 40 Grain Lead Round Nose
    • Improved Accuracy due to Improved Manufacturing Processes
    • Ballistically Matched Loads provide similar Aiming Point
    • 275 Count – MSRP $20.95

    Hunter MatchFederal 22 Long Rifle Field Bulk Pack

    • .22 Long Rifle 38 Grain Copper Plated Hollow Point
    • Improved Accuracy due to Improved Manufacturing Processes
    • Ballistically Matched Loads provide similar Aiming Point
    • 275 Count – MSRP $22.95

    What makes these bulk packs more intriguing for consumers than other options already on the market is the fact that they are ballistically matched. Federal Premium explains what that means:

    Federal 22 Long Rifle Range & Field rounds provide nearly identical ballistics, reducing or eliminating the need to adjust sights when shifting between loads.

    To go from the range to the field seamlessly can be a big benefit for consumers who hunt. What will also benefit hunters is Federal’s new Hunter Match ammunition. The new Hunter Match ammo can be found in 50-count and 500-count packages with the following specs:

    • .22 Long Rifle 40 Grain MATCH Hollow Point
    • Loaded to High-Velocity Match-Grade Accuracy specification
    • Nickel-Plated Case for Reliable Extraction & Corrosion Protection
    • Hollow-Point Lead Bullet tuned for Optimum Penetration & Expansion out to 100 yards

    Although most of this ammunition will be shipped to dealers in 500-count packages the only MSRP stated by Federal is for the smaller 50-count boxes at $7.95 each. This puts it right on par with other hollow-point favorites like CCI Mini-Mag. Federal expanded on the improved qualities of the Hunter Match ammo:

    The Hunter Match 22 LR hollow-point lead bullet has been tuned for optimum penetration and expansion out to 100 yards, and its high-velocity loading provides the flat trajectories and energy to take down any target. Its nickel-plated case ensures flawless extraction and inhibits corrosion.

    You will hopefully be seeing both the Hunter Match and the Field & Range Bulk packs hitting store shelves soon. Federal has stated that they are, in fact, already shipping to dealers.
