This is top of the line, American-made range ammo made by ATK (same company that makes Speer Lawman, CCI, Blazer Brass, etc) - it doesn't get any better.
Video Transcript:American Eagle is Federal's top of the line range and training ammo. It has a great reputation for reliability and consistency. Federal ammo is made here in the US at their facility in Minnesota. All components are manufactured right in the same plant, allowing for a high level of consistency and quality control.
For this review, we shot a couple of boxes of American Eagle and .45 ACP with a 230 grain bullet. The bullet has a traditional lead core with the copper full metal jacket. The primers are, of course, non-corrosive, and the brass shell casings are great for reloading. We had one failure to feed while using this ammo in a Kimber 1911, but I'm pretty sure it was due to a bad magazine. The ammo worked great in all of our other test guns, and I've never had a problem with American Eagle functioning in any of the .45's I've previously owned.
We used a Springfield Armory XDM .45 to test the ammo from a benchrest at 15 yards. As I've come to expect from this brand, accuracy was great, and it was not difficult to keep almost all the rounds in one big group. I think American Eagle stands up to any other brand of practice ammo and represents one of the best values in its price range.
