Federal Releases Two Handgun Ammo Boxes In Throwback Packaging
As part of its 100th anniversary celebration, Federal Ammunition is releasing two limited-edition boxes of Federal handgun ammunition in throwback packaging.
The packaging honors two classic Federal handgun products—Monark Match and Hydra-Shok—both in .45 Auto. The limited-edition Monark Match retro box design dates to the 1960s, and the Hydra-Shok loads are packaged in a box with a 1980s-era look.
Perhaps best of all, these commemorative and collectible .45 Auto loads boast the same performance as their modern Federal equivalents. The Federal Monark Match .45 Auto cartridge includes a 230-grain full metal jacket bullet, while the Hydra-Shok uses a 230-grain Hydra-Shok jacketed hollow point bullet.
You can see the part numbers and price for both loads with throwback packaging below (prices pulled from the Federal website).
- Part No. 45A, Federal Monark Match, .45 Auto, 230-grain FMJ, 20-count box, MSRP: $49.99
- Part No. P45HS100, Federal Hydra-Shok, .45 Auto, 230-grain HS JHP, 20-count box, MSRP: $59.99
In addition to the limited-edition handgun ammo packaging, Federal announced similar retro packaging for certain center-fire rifle and shotgun products to celebrate its 100-year anniversary.
The special throwback packaging is only available for purchase on the Federal Ammunition website. Learn more at federalpremium.com.
