The Champion line of ammo is Federal's less expensive range and training ammo, and is some of the most affordable brass cased ammo you can get in any brand.
The Champion ammo we tested is the 9mm FMJ 115 grain. This bullet is a little different than the traditional full metal jacket. It's actually a plated bullet, which is thinner than the traditional jacket, and is closed on the bottom side, it's totally enclosed in copper, so there's no exposed lead on it, which makes it really good for indoor ranges.
In all other respects, the plated bullet is fine and it doesn't cause any reliability issues, but they're not recommended for ported barrels. I've shot a lot of this ammo over the last couple of years, reliability is great, I didn't have any problem in my test guns. Accuracy is not outstanding, I'm not exactly the best shot in the world, but in our 15 yard benchrest test, the ten shot groups weren't quite as good as some of the other ammo we've tested. The root beer cans, on the other hand, didn't really seem to notice.
Overall, Federal Champion is a solid range ammo, especially if you reload and want to keep your brass.

Outstanding Performance - Quality - Great Price
Bought this for my wife's Walther as it is picky and I had a couple boxes of this in my cabinet and it went through them like running water. Great accuracy, great overall performance and Federal reliability! It also burns just as "clean" or "dirty" (depending on what school you were taught in) as any other name brand ammo out there. Oh yes, a fantastic price and great shipping service from Lucky Gunner. A great place to get your ammo needs filled. High quality, great prices and great service!
Shoots as well as the Eagle. Same bullet. Same case. More flame leaping from the barrel with Champion than with Eagle. Not sure why. If you like flames, buy this. Otherwise, buy Eagle. Eagle seems to have more smoke. All goes boom real loud. I imagine it would hurt bad if hit with it.
My favorite practice ammo for my XDM
I've shot about 600 rounds of this ammo through a XDM wiith a 9mm conversion barrel on a 40 S&W cal pistol. I'm also using the same 40 S&W magazines rather than 9mm magazines.. Zero problems and good groupings. I shoot about 200 rounds per trip and imediately clean. Fouling is about average with other name brand FMJ. I would never recommend this setup for self defense and I'll continue to use the 40 S&W for that purpose, but for IDPA I've found this works fine. Buying 1,000 rounds, i found the shipping adds about $1 / box. Buying on sale, listed price was $205, actual price was around $225, shipping to Virginia. I'll be watching for it to go back on sale.
I have made several purchases from L.G. and have been very happy . Cost per round is a bit cheaper than from a mass merchandiser but it is delivered to your door, no cost of transportation to go pick it up.
I shot weekly at our local range, about a 150 rounds each trip so I need a good target round and have fount the Federal Champions to do a good job. Clean accurate ammunition that doesn't cost you a fortune to go "play". L.G. has always shipped promptly and I receive my order to my door step within a few days. They follow up and answered a question I had the one time I had to call. I have recommended to friends as I will to you!
