ANOKA, Minnesota – April 22, 2020 – Go beyond what you ever thought possible with new Federal Premium Terminal Ascent. Blending the features of top match-style bullet designs with the industry’s best bonding technology and components, Terminal Ascent delivers any-range accuracy and reliable expansion even at low velocities. This outstanding bullet design provides high weight retention, deep penetration and lethal terminal performance, both up close and at extreme distances. Now available in a full selection of long-range hunting cartridges including 280 Ackley Improved, 28 Nosler, 6.5 PRC and more. Shipments of this product have begun to arrive at dealers.
Bonded construction penetrates deep on close targets, while the patented Slipstream polymer tip initiates expansion at velocities 200 fps lower than comparable designs. The bullet’s long, sleek profile offers an extremely high ballistic coefficient, and its AccuChannel groove technology improves accuracy and minimizes drag.
“We took all the lessons learned during the past few decades building our own proprietary bullets and poured all that knowledge and experience into creating our best hunting bullet to date,” said Federal Centerfire Product Director Mike Holm. “We certainly credit using some of our existing, time-tested bullet designs to inspire the development of this new hunting bullet. Proven designs such as Trophy Bonded Bear Claw, Trophy Bonded Tip and Edge TLR all helped pave the way to create our all-new Terminal Ascent.”
Terminal Ascent also features high-end nickel plating that is corrosion-resistant to give the cartridge an outstanding appearance with smooth operation. This finishing makes Terminal Ascent look like a fine piece of jewelry. And the use of clean-burning propellant and an ultra-reliable, sealed primer—as well as its neon electric-blue polymer tip—produces a sleek-looking, high-performance cartridge that’s sure to impress.
“Terminal Ascent is simply the best all-range, all-velocity hunting ammunition available,” concluded Holm.
