Federal Premium Ammunition @ TFB:

The ammunition flavor that the Department of Homeland Security and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement went with was Federal’s Tactical Bonded line featuring a 62-grain Soft Point. Made exclusively for military/law enforcement, it achieves “accuracy and terminal performance that defeats tough barriers with minimal deviation.”

ANOKA, Minnesota – October 19, 2023 – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has selected the Federal Premium Law Enforcement Ammunition brand as the contract awardee for their 223 Rem. rifle ammunition. DHS, ICE protects America through criminal investigations and enforcing immigration laws to preserve national security and public safety. ICE has more than 20,000 law enforcement and support personnel in more than 400 offices in the United States and around the world.

The selected cartridge is the Tactical Bonded 62-grain soft point. This single-award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract is a Strategically Sourced contract for all DHS components and other federal agencies with a maximum quantity of 28 million rounds. The ordering period is for a total of five years.

“Law enforcement and federal agencies put it all on the line for our safety and freedoms. They should expect nothing less from their ammunition. We are proud to provide the highest quality duty ammunition to ICE agents in the field,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “Federal Premium Law Enforcement provides the top-quality products officers and agents need to have full confidence in any situation. Tactical Bonded has a long history of providing trusted performance time and time again for our nation’s law enforcement.”

It is no surprise that Federal Premium Ammunition has secured another Duty Ammo Contract considering they have a long reputation of doing just that. The real question I have is… How do I get some of that Tactical Bonded ammo???… Can I tell Federal I have a Duty Ammo Contract up for bid? It’s only, like, half a dozen boxes I need. C’mon, a guy can dream. As always, let us know all of your thoughts about Federal in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
