Dave “Doc” Frederickson has long been Federal Premium’s unofficial company historian. He is a retired doctor who has been collecting Federal Premium boxes, cartridges, and more since he was 12 years old. His collection of Federal merchandise—from 1922 until today—is so complete and well organized that Federal hired a small film crew out of Montana to film and produce a 5-minute short film on Frederickson’s collection. You can see it here:
Federal also made him their “Honorary Historian.” When I asked him about the size of the collection of vintage ammo boxes, shotgun shells, and cartridges he laughed and said, “I just tell people it’s a damn big collection.” Yeah, he’s just another American living the Range 365 life.
