Customer Reviews

Good for the Money but Reloaders BEWARE! Review by Tackleman24
Good for the Money but Reloaders BEWARE! As some previous reviews have stated, Federal decided for some stupid reason (most likely it cost less to manufacture) to use Small Pistol Primers instead of the industry (SAAMI) standard which is Large Pistol primers. As I stated, this was most likely done to save money. However it can only possibly save them a few cents per box but that can add up over millions of boxes but face the facts, most people who shoot brass cased ammo nowadays intend to reload and this poses problems for the reloader. Honestly I would prefer to pay the extra few cents per box or even another 50 cents per box if they manufacturered these to industry standards. Now comes the issues with poor performance which 1 person has already mentioned. These have a slower velocity because they use small pistol primers instead of the standard large pistol primers, this is because the small pistol primers do not ignite the powder as fast and as efficiently as the large pistol primers do. When the primer ignites the powder, pressure builds up and then pushes the bullet down the barrel however when the primer ignites the powder slower the pressure is not as great. As a result of the lower pressure there is a difference in velocity that fluctuates between 30 and 50 FPS when chronographed. Now I have reloaded these with a few different loads trying different powders and the results vary but not comparable to 45ACP when using the large pistol primers but 1 thing I found is to use magnum small pistol primers instead of standard small pistol due to the hotter ignition. I tried this doing everything as safely as possible and with reduced powder loads. I do not advise doing this unless you are a very competant reloader and again, remember safety first. Overall, this is good ammo for the money but it is just plinking ammo, it would be great ammo if they didn't do something as stupid as use small pistol primers. Personally I still have 1200 rds of this ammo in storage but it will stay in storage, this is my back up ammo for my back up ammo in case the Sh*t ever really hits the fan. One last note, I have never had a failure of any kind with this ammo, I just don't like it because of the poor ballistics resulting from the poor design of using small pistol primers. As previously stated, this is reliable ammo, it will always go bang. (Posted on 3/4/12)
i was hoping for something with large pistol primer Review by tarrda
I had purchased this product from Wal-Mart and it had a small pistol primer, I thought I carefully checked the picture and it looked to me as if this had a large pistol primer, the American Eagle brand from Federal does have a large pistol primer and shoots so much better groups than this, this isn't even close. According to the box info this spp Federal Champion is 830 fps at the muzzle and the American Eagle Federal is 890 fps at the muzzle. Perhaps that is why the American Eagle/Federal shoots so much better, perhaps it could be the lpp ignites the powder more consistently, I don't know except I can shoot a 10 shoot group at 25yds 2 1/4 inches with 9 going into 1 5/16's of an inch with the American Eagle/Federal LPP and this Federal Champ SPP can't even come close to that. But I just bought my Kimber and need to break it in, this ammo will do just fine for that as I have already shot @200 rounds of this and @ 100 of Blazer Brass SPP ammo without any problems, they all feed great and no failure to fire's. What I intend to do is realize the best potential groups this can give me and get as much practice as I can so that when I shoot ammo that groups better I will be up to the task. Thanks for the Great service and fast shipping! (Posted on 12/28/11)
All is well, however... Review by CCWHusker
even in a .45 ACP, this ammo uses a SPP. I reckon this was done to save Federal a few bucks. What else is new. If you want to reload it, go ahead. Ensure that you pay attention to what primer you are trying to stuff into the pocket. Other than that, this is straight shooting ammo that is priced right. I use it to blow lead out at the end of the day after a good hour of 230gr LRN through my Colt. (Posted on 12/26/11)
Pretty not bad... Review by CCWHusker
I use this to close out a session at the range. 10-20 rds after a hour or so of HCLRN through my 1911. I'm not too concerned with leading the bbl, but I figure it's better to err on the side of caution. This Federal Champion does shoot well. It's as on target as anything else and it is priced right. However, I did not expect to see a flash comparable to my .357 Sig this last time I shot with 5 of these guys. It didn't screw me up, but it was kinda fun to see. The only real gripe would be about the brass. If you want to reload this stuff, be advised that it DOES NOT use a large pistol primer like most .45 ACP. The pocket is sized for the same primer that is in 9mm, .40 Smith, and .357 Sig. I reckon this was done to cut costs and streamline the manufacturing process for the entire line. You can reload it, but you have to segregate it from the rest of the .45 brass you police up and remember to use small pistol primers. All in all, this is good ammo to train with and it can be reloaded with proper operator headspace and timing. (Posted on 12/26/11)

Very good Review by Chris
Some of the best .45 ACP ammo for the money. After 300 Rounds only one hangup but that was my fault for limp wristing it. Over all BUY THEM (Posted on 9/21/11)
