  • National Shooting Sports Foundation

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) works on our behalf to help ensure the firearms and ammunition business remains healthy and in a positive light.

  • International Hunter's Education Association

    We're honored to help continue the tradition of the Hunter's Education program by teaching young and new shooters proper firearm handling, safety and stewardship. It's programs like International Hunter's Education Association (IHEA) that keep our image positive.

  • Boy Scouts of America

    Federal and the Boy Scouts have a strong history of teaching youth how to shoot safely and become ambassadors for our heritage.

  • Becoming an Outdoors-Woman

    We're also proud to support programs like BOW that help women get involved in the hunting and shooting sports. Hunters are a tight-knit group and it's more important than ever for us to open up to new, enthusiastic members. Most states have a BOW program.

  • USSA Outdoor Business Council

    Federal is a long-standing member of the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) Outdoor Business Council. The USSA has been keeping an eye on potentially threatening legislation and leading efforts to recruit new shooters and hunters through their Boy Scout affiliated Trailblazer program.

  • Pass It On Outdoor Mentors

    Federal is the official ammunition of this truly unique and effective organization. Hunting groups are looking to introduce more kids to the sport, and mentoring groups like Big Brother Big Sisters are looking for more adults to pair with their waiting list of kids. Pass It On brings those two together, and provides quality experiences for both groups at the same time.
