Designing FireStick

Federal engineers opened a whole new chapter in muzzleloading technology with FireStick, the critical component of an all-new ignition system that charges from the breech, loads from the muzzle and shoots like nothing before.

Breech Breakthrough

FireStick's charge is completely impervious to moisture and loaded to the same tight tolerances as Federal Premium factory ammunition, ensuring shot-to-shot consistency and accuracy muzzleloaders have never experienced. The charge unloads quickly, simply and safely by slipping out of the breech-there's no need to fire the rifle.

Can the FireStick system be used during my state’s muzzleloader season?

Many states and provinces define a firearm as a muzzleloader if it requires the projectile to be loaded down the muzzle manually. Since the FireStick system falls within that definition, many jurisdictions are poised to allow it for hunting big game during muzzleloader seasons. In some states, regulations are broad and lack clarity on the specifics of muzzleloader hunting. In each instance, please check local regulations and contact your game and fish department with questions.
