Train + Protect Ammunition Serves Two Needs Well

Train + Protect Ammunition Serves Two Needs Well

Federal Premium has just made it a heck of a lot more convenient for you to get proficient with your personal defense ammunition.

If you’ve ever been frustrated by feeling like you have to buy different types of ammunition—one for training and one for defense—worry no more. Train + Protect is designed for both worlds.

One reason many shooters don’t train with their defensive ammunition as much as they should is that it typically costs more than everyday FMJ options. Train + Protect tries to find the middle ground on price and purpose.

It features a versatile hollow point bullet inside a reloadable brass case. Pair those with a reliable primer and Federal has produced a round that is designed to perform consistently on the range as well as in a defensive encounter. And most law-abiding gun owners realize that it’s a good idea to know how your firearm will respond with the ammunition you want to use for defense. Bullet weight and ballistic characteristics sometimes make a marked difference in how proficiently you shoot. Using the same round for training and protection eliminates the variability in performance.

Federal Premium’s Train + Protect line is available in three calibers: 9 mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. The MSRP ranges from $30.95 to $35.95 for a box of 50, and $56.95 to $66.95 for a box of 100.
