    Had a KB with older Federal Hydra-Shok .40 ammo 165 gr. After searching for a while on random websites, turns out this ammo had a lot of problems with case separation for the lot numbers that I had. Plenty of Glock .40 KB's all directly related to this ammo.

    Mailed my gun to Glock, they repaired it for free (was 2 weeks old). They gave me a direct phone number to a customer support guy named "Gary" at federal. Called this number and left a message. Never heard anything back. Called a few more times and left a couple more messages, still nothing. Got ahold of their customer service center, but I've tried calling for a couple weeks now and haven't had anyone answer the phone or call me back on messages that I've left. I also tried emailing them through the website and haven't heard anything back from them. I'm just trying to get solid information about the plenty of ammo that I have and don't want to use.

    Has anyone else had an awful, or I guess non-existent experience with Federal?

    Phone numbers I have are

    Gary: 763-323-3705 - Called first time over christmas, message said he was away until the 2nd. Called after the 2nd and he had a new message recorded, but had not returned my phone call or acknowledged my call at at.

    General custom support: 866-223-9388

    Good luck to you dealing with an uncooperative Federal.

    Send Federal a registered letter, keep a copy and the post office receipt.

    Call 800-322-2342 and ask to be transferred to him. Leave a message that if you do not receive a response within 24 hours that you will be calling CEO Mark W. Deyoung to report all that has transpired including Gary's name & negligence.

    You'll get a call back.
