Today, I'd like to talk about American Eagle subsonic 9mm ammunition. This is loaded with over 147 grain, full metal jacket, flat-point bullets made by the Federal Cartridge Company in Anoka, Minnesota. Federal is part of the ATK family of companies. Federal makes a lot of ammunition for both law enforcement and military applications, and though this is commercial ammo, it's held to the same high standards.
This ammo was made to be subsonic, which means that it travels for the speed of sound. To test this, I put this through a suppressed pistol. With a suppressor, it's very simple to tell what's subsonic and what's not because you can hear the supersonic crack if it breaks the sound barrier. This being said, this ammunition was some of the quietest I've ever fired in my pistol. As another test of its velocity, I chronographed this in both 4 and 5-inch barrel pistols.
Throughout the test, I noticed that this ammo was very clean and didn't leave behind much residue. This is important with any ammunition, but using a suppressor makes this much more noticeable. The suppressed firemen that I tried this with was a CZ SP-01, though I tried it unsuppressed, as well. The other firearms were a Glock 19, a Ruger LC-9, a Ruger SR-9, a Kimber 1911, and a Browning Hi-Power. Not only were there not any issues with reliability, but it was also very easy to shoot and extremely accurate.
If you carry 147 grain hollow-points, buying this ammunition provides another benefit in that will recoil and perform very similarly, and practicing for defense will be much more effective. I think that this ammo was a great choice for those who need reliable 147 grain 9mm load, or for those who carry 147s and want to practice for defense. It's also a great choice for general shooting because of the accuracy and low recoil of the 147 grain bullet.

great ammo, by vapochilled on 4/28/2012
Ran a 1000 through my P226, what a difference compared to the 115grn stuff. Grouping at 5" and 20 yards with ease. ...

Pefect for my Beretta Nano
Received my 1,000 rd purchase on Wed & went to the range on Thur. Made this purchase to use with my Beretta Nano that I bought new at a FL gun show 3 wks ago. The reviews on the Nano indicate many FTE problems when the pistol was intoduced. The problem seemed to be caused by using 115 gr ammo. The suggestion was made by many shooters to use 124 gr or heavier bullets to break the gun in since it was designed to be a 40 cal pistol. Unfortunately it was only produced in 9mm. After shooting several hundred rds the past 2 wks I tried the American Eagle 147 gr rds. I can't believe the difference & inprovement I saw. The recoil seemed less & the accuracy was better. I also tried these rds in my Springfield XDM-9 with an even better grouping accuracy. Overall these bullets are great for my pistols. The price from Lucky Gunner was terrific, just slightly more than Remington 115's & the Winchester Nato 124's that I had been using. If LG can maintain or lower the price I will definitely be back to order more in the future.
Good Practice/Range Ammo
I selected this round to be a cheaper practice round in lieu of more expensive hollow points. I used LuckyGunner's ballistic gelatin test to select an affordable 9mm HD round with good expansion. Between 147gn Rem Golden Saber and 115gn Speer Gold Dot, they both grouped well at 7yds. The Golden Saber grouped slightly better for me so I chose Federal AE 147gn within 10 fps as an equivalent practice and target round. It's performed well in that role.
first time purchase here, purchase and delivery were fast and easy
This was my first ammo purchase on internet, Lucky Gunner customer service personnel made the process easy and fast also the delivery to the FFL (Aurther Plouse) was right on the day promised. Also the FFL, Mr. Plouse was very helpful, making the sure the delivery to me was smooth and easy.
Good Quality Ammo
I use the Federal 147 FMJ as my practice ammo. Federal HST 147 is my home defense ammo for my Sig P226 - my gun loves both - so I'm happy !! Many thanks to Lucky Gunner... Your service converted me from that dirty and cheap site !!!!
Great product and great supplier - 9mm 147 gr Federal American Eagle
No complaints on my recent purchase of 9mm - 147 gr FMJ FN - Federal American Eagle. I usually buy the cheap stuff (115 gr) but couldn't pass up the deal on a 147 gr. This was my first time shooting anything other than 115 gr in both my Glock 17 and 43 and I can say the heavier gr shoots better; a fun experiment for me. I'm partial to Federal/ American Eagle due to their support of the gun community and I'll definitely be placing many more orders with Lucky Gunner. Great YouTube vids by the way LG crew! If you haven't already, check out their channel - good stuff.
excellent rounds, value, performance
Like the extra "punch" of the 147 gr. Runs well through old faithful Glock 17. Not a professional and I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night but these rounds rock. Smooth, no misfires or jams. Great price and service from Lucky Gunner as always.
Great ammo. I have shot 400 rounds through different 9 mm handguns and so far so good.
I have always shot AE ammo and the 147gr are good ammo. I have not had any issues with these ammo thus far. I will be placing more purchase in the near future when I finish shooting the 1000 bulk that I had just purchase. Great price and fast shipping.
My suppressed AR-9 sub gun with 5" barrel shoots this ammo accurately out to 50 yards and functions perfectly. Every weapon has it's likes and dislikes but this is best I have found. Great sub-sonic practice ammo.
Great Training Ammo
Someone above said
"I have HP Gold Dot for home protection but this is best training ammo that I have used. Happy shooting!"
Same boat, I run gold dot for home protection but this is great training ammo. I only encountered one stove pipe in a Glock 19 due to the user having a weak grip, not due to failure of ammo. I would recommend this to anyone.
Great Ammo - 3000/3000
This is great affordable quality ammo.
I have shot over 3,000 rounds through a Glock 19 with no misfires.
I have HP Gold Dot for home protection but this is best training ammo that I have used. Happy shooting!
I have shot several brands of 9mm ammo at various weights, and I think that this ammo is awesome for competition shooting if you don't have a re-loader.
I can't recall ever having a jam or a misfire that was due to the ammo itself.
i have shot nearly 12000 rounds through my Springfield XDM and the American Eagle ammo is by far the cleanest, and best priced ammo i have shot with it.
Ran a 1000 through my P226, what a difference compared to the 115grn stuff. Grouping at 5" and 20 yards with ease. May not suit every gun, but I've not yet found one that does not love this ammo.
Batting 1000 for 1000
I have just completed firing 1000 rounds of this ammo through my Sig P228 with NOT ONE SINGLE problem. I am completely sold on this ammo and will come back to it frequently. I use many different ammos for the range and this one is a performance king. Hope this helps if deciding to purchase.
