Video Transcript:

American Eagle ammo is one of the most popular brands from the Federal Ammunition Company. Federal is owned by the US-based ATK, the parent company of lots of other respected name brands like CCI and Speer. The Federal American Eagle brand is well-known for its high performance at a modest cost.

The load we're looking at today is American Eagle 155 grain 40 S&W. It has a reloadable brass case with a Federal head stamp. Primers are non-corrosive and the bullet is a lead core with a copper full metal jacket. Most practice loads for 40 Smith & Wesson are either 165 or 180 grain, so this 155 grain load is somewhat unusual.

It also has a lot more velocity and muzzle energy than most of the other loads using heavier bullets. That's because the 155 grain bullet is a common weight for self-defense rounds, and it will more accurately simulate the point of impact of these defense loads.

When we ran our accuracy test at 15 yards, the rounds were impacting right at our point of aim. With most other practice loads that we've tested out of our SIG P226, the rounds tend to impact a little high, sometimes left. This particular gun has its sights set up for a lighter defensive load, so this American Eagle round is the perfect choice for serious training.

Despite the increased velocity, we were surprised to find that there was not a huge increase in recoil impulse. We loaded a magazine with a few of these rounds, followed by some heavier bullets. The lighter bullets were just slightly more snappy, but it wouldn't make much of difference unless you fired several boxes in one session.

Out of the six guns that we used for the test, none had any reliability problems. Overall, this round worked just as well as any of the more common loads that we've used. American Eagle and 40 Smith & Wesson is always a solid choice for training at the range. And depending on your needs, the 155 grain load may be just the thing you need to get the most out of your practice sessions.

Shot a case through Glock 22, 23, and 27 combined. Flawless. The only problem was one stovepipe, entirely my fault with a lazy limp wrist on the last round without the magazine in place. Great ammo, and Lucky Gunner is the best! (Posted on 8/20/13)

A CQB class became available but I needed 800 rounds to participate. With the current ammo situation, I was afraid I would not be able to find enough .40 S&W in time. LuckyGunner.com came through with 1000 rounds in time for the class. (Posted on 5/25/13)

We love to shoot and wanted to see how much improvement can a person do by shooting 1000 rounds in 1 week. We each shot 4000 rounds. Not one misfire, gun still relatively clean, hand is sore. But at 15 yds we went from a 15" double tap down to 3 inches. We have decided these are the only rounds to depend on. I mean really depend on, your life. (Posted on 4/27/13)

I have literally shot tens of thousands of rounds of this ammo from American Eagle and never had a single problem - ever.

If this ammo jams in your gun - buy a new gun!

The same applies for Speer Lawman though - both are top notch (and I think made by the same parent company?) (Posted on 11/15/09)
