For those who are not aware ATK the parent company for Federal Ammunition and Blackhawk has purchased Savage Arms Company the beginning of May 2013. I do not think that it is a bad thing because ATK holds some of the highest quality products in the industry. I believe they will maintain the same high quality that Savage is known for. ATK also owns the following. RCBS, Outers, Weaver, Alliant Powder, Speer Bullet Co. CCI.
