Federal Premium announced the addition of 90-grain 6.8 Rem. SPC and 6.5 Grendel loads to its American Eagle Varmint & Predator ammunition lines.

The company's Varmint & Predator loads are designed to provide shooters with accurate and consistent ammo performance in bulk packs. These 50-round boxes of ammo will allow high-volume shooters to have ammo ready when they need it in the field.

The new loads feature a JHP bullet, which is designed to expand rapidly upon impact with small game animals. The rounds are designed to feed reliably in modern sporting rifles and feature reloadable brass cases, along with consistent-ignition primers.

The 90-grain Varmint & Predator load for 6.5 Grendel retails at a suggested price of $63.95 for a 50-round box. Consumers can purchase 50 rounds of the 90-grain 6.8 Rem. SPC load at a suggested price of $53.95.
