American Eagle is an ammo brand from Federal, part of the larger ATK family of ammo companies along with CCI, Blazer, and Speer. All of the ammo from the ATK companies is made in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities right here in the United States. American Eagle has a reputation for being some of Federal's best practice ammo and it's also very affordable. For this review, we had a chance to shoot a few rounds of one of the American Eagle 45 ACP loads. The reloadable brass case cartridges hold a 230 grain copper jacketed bullet with a lead core. American Eagle in 45 is available with both small and large primers, and this load uses large primers. Most people won't notice any difference, but if you intend to reload your brass, just make sure to use large primer with these cases. Both the large and the small primer version are non-corrosive. We tried out this ammo with six different pistols to test function and performance. Every round fed and ejected with no issues in any of our guns. Recoil is pretty average for a 45 load and wasn't noticeably different from most other common practice loads. It was a bit of a handful in our compact lightweight Kahr CW45 pistol, but that's to be expected. In a full size gun, it's still a 45, but it's not too hard to handle. Because it is a full power load, it's a good self defense training round and shouldn't be too far from the recoil impulse of most hollow point ammo. We used a Springfield Armory XDM pistol to test accuracy from the bench at 15 yards. As with most American Eagle ammo we've reviewed, we got a decent group, especially for a value price plinking load. Most rounds landed right at the point of aim, with some going slightly high or slightly to the right within an inch or two. American Eagle is one of my personal favorite brands of ammo, and I wouldn't hesitate to use it for any range or practice applications.

Good ammo, shipped fast and arrived on time. Only complaint is the boxes look worn and most of them were broken. I have my own .45 storage containers so it's not a big deal for me but someone buying this expecting to store in boxes might have an issue. Other than the boxes no issues at all. Will order again as the boxes have nothing to do with ammo performance.
Great ammo and delivery
I have never had an issue with this ammo and I've been using it for years. I ordered early in the morning and received my ammo the next day before 5 pm. They emailed immediately notified me when shipped. I will definitely be doing business with Lucky Gunner again soon.
I bought this ammo on sale and it was a great deal. Then the folks at Lucky Gunner promptly notified me as to shipping, supplied me with the tracking number. I was very pleased with Lucky Gunner and this ammo. This is one of my favorite ammos.
Fantastic Ammo - super service - great price
Purchased ammo on 11/22. Received on 11/25 before noon. Purchased American Eagle for 45 acp and 9mm. Been shooting exclusively American Eagle for the past year. Very clean and exactly zero failures of any kind from either round using several pistols after 2000+ rounds of each.
Thanks LG will be getting more.
Excellent value and price. Good quality ammo. Ran it through a XD Mod.2. No issues.
Excellent value and price for this target ammo. I ran it through a XD Mod.2 with no issues. Excellent customer service, fast shipping. Will continue to buy from and recommend Lucky Gunner.
Smooth transaction. Will do business again.
Accurate. Dependable. Affordable. Luckygunner.com's customer service is outstanding. Only "problem" was FedEx guys must be weaklings because it looked like the shipping box was dropped numerous times in shipping. Ammo survived in its boxes but "over-box" was destroyed
As usual, Heidi delivers with fast shipping.
Great Service. Fast shipping and as always Heidi come through with best pricing.
Thanks guys. Will be ordering from Luckygunner again.
As for the ammo. Can't complain about American Eagle. Never had a FTE or FTF. Great target rounds.
After almost busting a gut laughing with Grumpy's review all I will say is "ditto". And since all those numbskulls out there who voted for Obummer by not voting... Buckle Up, Folks, It's Going To Be A Bumpy Ride.
Made in USA... the only stuff I will buy.
The things I do to save $10
Well Heidi says I can have $10 off my next purchase if I write a review; I'm thinking if I write the worst review ever that she'll give me $20 if I never write another one again ;-O So I purchased the Federal 45 ACP ammo and also got the PMC 45 ACP to compare it to. I just purchased a Sig P220 and I fired 100 rnds of the Federal and the next time at the range I fired 100 rnds of the PMC. I had no misfeeds, FTE or FTF. Pulled the trigger and bang; 100% satisfactiion on both of these products. Cleaning my pistol revealed that the Federal left slightly less residue than the PMC but it didn't seem to be a significant difference. Accuracy was similar with both given my mediocre skills. The only difference is that Federal is made here in the good ole USA and PMC is made by the Kay-ah-sah-kees in Korea (for those fluent in Korean cuss words). As for LuckyGunner, except for all of these tedious reviews, the web site is easy to navigate and ordering couldn't be simpler...two days later everything I ordered shows up on my front porch (as if by magic-thanks FedEx!). Now if you've managed to get this far let me discuss something of vital importance (no, not that Heidi is very attractive... ah, if there is a Mr. Heidi then I'm taking about a different Heidi altogether here so no offense); what I'm trying to get at is that it is vitally important that everyone interested in the shooting sports gets out and votes this Tuesday. One set of candidates supports our second amendment rights, the other two will try to take them away. The next president will probably have the opportunity to nominate two or three supreme court justices; recently the second amendment was upheld by a 5-4 decision! If the right justices aren't selected then we will lose this most important American freedom. No excuses, get out and vote!!!! Ok, that is the end of my sermon. To summarize: LuckyGunner=good, Federal/PMC=good, voting for the right candidates=good.
