Federal designed HammerDown ammo in collaboration with Henry Repeating Arms. HammerDown is specifically engineered for any and all lever guns. It functions flawlessly in side-gate loading and tubular magazines, according to Federal. To achieve this, Federal chamfered the case on the cartridges. A specialized geometry on the front face of the case rim helps facilitate cycling.
Federal chose heavy-for-caliber bullets, set to increased velocities, to deliver better depth of penetration. The molecularly bonded bullets deliver weight retention on impact. The precision-built cases also feature nickel-plated brass. The clean-burning, consistent powders are specifically formulated. Finally, Gold Medal primers deliver reliable ignition.
For anyone who has ever hunting with or fired a lever-action rifle, they can definitely hang up during cycling. Designed to work more smoothly in the action, Federal HammerDown improves upon a classic. Built to penetrate from lever-action barrel lengths, HammerDown might just usher in a new era in lever-gun hunting.
Available in 20-count packages, Federal HammerDown retails for $19.99 (.45-70 Gov’t retails for $38.99). For more information, visit federalpremium.com.
