This ammunition is top of the line range ammo perfect for plinking, target practice, and tactical training. Federal Champion is made by ATK (same company that makes Speer Lawman, CCI, Blazer Brass, etc) - it doesn't get any better.
This product is new, brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable. It is a staple target practice and training ammunition.
Video Transcript:The Federal Champion brand is part of Federal's line of low cost range ammo, and is some of the most affordable 45 ACP brass cased ammo available. The primary cost saving measure is the use of copper plated bullets. Plating is bonded with a lead core bullet using a different process than a traditional full metal jacket, but the end results are similar.
The plating is relatively thin, however, so it's not recommended for use in guns with ported barrels, since the plating can shear off in the ports. In most other respects, plated bullets perform just the same as full metal jacket. And they're actually preferred by some people since there's no exposed lead on the base of the bullet, making them ideal for use in indoor ranges.
For this test, we shot a couple of boxes of 230 grain ACP Federal Champion. The plated bullet was seated in a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer. We tested accuracy at 15 yards from a bench rest using a Springfield Armory XDM.
Other calibers of Federal Champion that we've tested were not quite as accurate as their full metal jacket counterparts. But this batch of Champion 45 got really great results. Besides that one flier, we got an impressive 10 shot group. The reliability was also great with no malfunctions in any of our test guns. For American made brass cased ammo, Federal Champion in 45 ACP is a great value for practice at the range.
