Video Transcript:American Eagle Ammo is one of the best known labels from the Federal Ammo Company, which in turn, is part of the ATK family of companies, along with CCI, Blazer, and Sphere. American Eagle has a well-deserved reputation for being reliable in consistent range ammo that comes at an affordable price.
For this review, we looked at American Eagle 180 grain 40 Smith & Wesson. This one is a little different from the usual American Eagle because it comes packed in this nice compact box. There's no ammo tray or any other unused space inside the box, so it's a great way to pack a lot of rounds in a small space. It might be ideal for taking along to a shooting match or a handgun class.
Like most American Eagle ammo this 40 Smith & Wesson load comes with a reloadable brass case in a non-corrosive primer. The 180 grain bullets is a lead core, copper full metal jacket with a flat nose. As expected, the ammo gave us no problem in any of our six test guns and reliability was consistent.
The recoil impulse was average for a 40 Smith & Wesson with not too much snap, but enough power to cycle all of our pistols. We took a look at accuracy with a quick benchrest test from 15 yards using a SIG-P226, results were outstanding, with just one ragged hole just a hair above our point of aim. American Eagle and .40 Smith & Wesson, is top shelf range and training ammo. It is one of the best values on the market today.
