This is top of the line, American-made range ammo - it doesn't get any better.
Video Transcript:American Eagle is Federal's top of the line training ammunition. It has a great reputation for reliability and consistency. Like all Federal ammo, American Eagle is made in Minnesota, here in the US. The brass primers and casings are all made the same facility, which helps maintain a high standard of quality control.
For this review, we ran through a couple of boxes of American Eagle 180 grain, and 40 Smith and Wesson. This ammo features a reloadable brass case, full metal jacket bullet with a lead core and a non-corrosive primer. For our accuracy test, we fired a 10-shot group at 15 yards with a SIG P226 and got pretty good results. Kind of looks like a demented smiley face or something. Just as expected, it was really reliable, and we had no failures in any of our test guns.
I consider American Eagle to be some of the most dependable range ammo available. It's accurate, reliable, the brass is great for reloading, and even though it's part of Federal's Premium line of ammo, it's still pretty affordable.

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)
