Federal Premium Ammunition Announces Honorary Company Historian

Federal Premium Ammunition Announces Honorary Company Historian

federal_premium_ammo-history_FEver since his father introduced him to hunting and the outdoors at an early age, David "Doc" Frederickson has maintained a passion for collecting ammo memorabilia and cartridges, specifically those made by Federal Premium. For more than 50 years, Frederickson — who is not, and has never been, a Federal Premium employee — amassed a vast collection cataloging Federal's unique history over the years.

At the 2015 NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits, Federal Premium chose to recognize Frederickson's collecting efforts by presenting him with the title of Honorary Company Historian and a commemorative trophy.

Federal also produced a short film highlighting Frederickson's incredible story, which aired at the show. In addition to documenting his life as a collector, the film shows Frederickson's dedication to others as a public servant, touching on his time spent serving in the air force in Vietnam and his later careers in emergency medicine and law enforcement.

For a closer look at Frederickson and his expansive collection, check out the short film below.

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
