Federal's Champion ammo is marketed as a low-cost option for a range and training use. Like all Federal ammo, the Champion line is manufactured in the US and features a re-loadable brass case. The bullet is a normal lead core, but with copper plating rather than a traditional copper jacket. The copper plating is a little less expensive to produce, which helps make the Champion ammo affordable.
I've shopped plenty of plated bullets, and they perform mostly the same as a full metal jacket. But it's not recommended that you shoot them through corded barrels, since the plating can shear off on the cores.
For this review, we shot a couple of boxes of Federal Champion 180 grain in 40 Smith & Wesson. The Champion ammo may not boast the same performance as Federal's premium line, but for everyday range use, it seems to work just fine. We got a nice 10-shot group, firing from a bench rest at 15 yards out of a Sig P226.
Reliability was great as well, and we didn't experience any malfunctions with our test guns. against Federal Champion in a 40 Smith &Wesson is great for the range, and the brass cases are good for reloading, too. So don't hesitate to pick up a couple of boxes and give it a try.

Could not figure out why I was missing my target , so I bench rested and set up stacked targets at 20 " gaps. This ammo was shooting 14" high off of a bench rest at 25 yards . So, I paced off 6 large strides and shot 6 " low and sure enough 1" to the left of bullseye elevation was dead on . Won't purchase anymore . Winchester makes a much better round at least for my pistol .
Pleased< but Barely
Ammo price is good for plinking and practice. Had several FTF out of 200 rounds recently in Sig P226. Clean and fairly acurate shooting ammo, but loads are Inconsistent and occassionally weak. Used up last 200 rounds of 1000 rd stash. Won't buy again.
Best in value!
I have used about 400 rounds with no problem. The rounds are good, effective, dependable and quality manufactured ammo. The price was good, the shipping was fast and I felt confident in my purchase so I've recommended Lucky Gunner to several friends and I will continue to buy at this .com for future purchases!
Great Ammo for the Range
Fired 300 rounds through a Baretta 96A1. No feeding issues. Dealing with Lucky Gunner has been great! Have ordered ammo from them multiple times and it always is shipped out quickly. Orders are received within two days. I will continue to go to Lucky Gunner for my ammo needs. Really appreciate the dependable service!
Great Ammo for the Price
Bought 1000 rounds for range use in my H&K USP. After 400 rounds no FTF. After breaking down my pistol I found it cleaner than when I used PMC and Blazer. What is more amazing is the service. Two days from order to door. Other suppliers can take a week or more. Great product and price, but most of all, great service!
Excellent Value, Good Performance
I normally shoot Federal's American Eagle brand, but bought a case of this less expensive ammo to try. A bit dirty and a lighter load compared to American Eagle, but otherwise good performance at a great price.
Fast shipping great price
My local gun shop said the best quality cheap ammo was pmc bronze for 270 per 1000 rounds, i bought two boxes of 50 had numerous(FTE)(FTF). I ordered from Luckygunner on a Tuesday at my front door by Thursday. Over 500 rounds through my Beretta 96A1 no problems to report. very clean ammo and accurate to my standards. GREAT BUY
I received the ammo in 2 days, put 500 through my glock 22 gen 4 during the first weekend and the other 500 this past weekend and did not have a single issue. I just ordered another 1000, luckygunner.com is the best!!! Best value around, I've recommended you to all my friends.
ok to practice with
0 malfunctions after 300 rounds with .40 federal champ. acurracy is not superb. some rounds seem weak compared to others in the same box. needs more consistent propulsion. other than that, 100% reliable.
GREAT, CLEAN, and ACCURATE. I ran about 500 rounds through my S&W M&P without any issues. When cleaning my pistol I noticed that it wasn't even that dirty. GREAT VALUE! GREAT SHIPPING, and I should know I work in the shipping business. Very impressed with Luckgunner. Recommended it to all of my friends.
great ammo and flawless
I bought a 1000 rounds of this stuff. Shot about 450 rounds already in my HK USP Compact .40. I have not had a single malfunction at all using this ammo and in fact never had any malfunctions since owning this gun either. The ammo is clean, accurate, and great for the range.
Does the job...
Just bought Walther PPQ so looking for some reasonably priced range rounds, not sure about the reloaded bulk ammo so decided to try this ammo. Granted it was a new gun at the range for the first time and I specifically did not clean or lubricate the gun, but I found that our of 400 rounds I had 8 jams and needed to re-rack the gun on each occasion. Now I don't specifically blame the rounds, thus 4 stars, I have now lubed and cleaned the gun. Not a dirty round and quite accurate with a 3inch spread at 20yrds. All in all good value. I will repost with details on the last 100 rounds once I get back to the range.
Great Value, Great Cost Per Round
I shoot about once every other week. I have now shot approximately 500 rounds and have not had one misfire nor any jamming. This ammunition has worked great and buying in bulk gives you near the lowest cost per round on the net. Buying it from Lucky Gunner, well that is just a bonus, always great and prompt service
I used 1000 rounds in a defensive hand gun course with Front Sight and had no problems. The ammo was shipped very quickly and great customer service. I will be purchasing all my ammo from Lucky Gunner from now on.
Worth every shot
When I go shooting I go through at least 200 rounds so I always like to purchase in bulk. With Lucky Gunner I can afford to do so. I have spread the word to all my friends and family. Great place to shop. With ammo prices expecting to rise I know they will do their best to bring us the best bargain prices they can. Thanks Lucky Gunner!!!
Excellent place to purchase!
I'm giving 5 stars mostly because of the service I received from Lucky Gunner. I ordered 1000 rnds and only recived 500. I called and they immediately started process for the 2nd 500 and had them in a couple of days. They are excited about your business. As far as the ammo I haven't shot this batch yet but have used in the past and were good.
It is hard to find somthing negative to say about luckygunner or federal ammo. I orderd 1000 rounds wednesday and got it friday. Best prices, and the ammo was so clean it looked polished!! THANK YOU AGAIN LUCKY GUNNER!!!
Great ammo for the price
Tried nearly every brand in my Beretta PX4 and these rounds are as good as any. Actually had my most accurate target round with these last week. The price makes them a compelling best value and LuckyGunner has the best and fastest service out there IMHO. "Winning" Ha Ha
Affordable target ammo
Finally had a chance to shoot some of this stuff at the range! Good quality, good performance, excellent value. The delivery was quick, I have ordered something else since then and will continue doing business with LuckyGunner! thanks
Decent ammo for the price
For the price, it's pretty good range ammo. Compared to similar priced ammo... It's much more reliable(no FTF so far) than Wolf. Though at 15+ yards, the grouping is noticeably sloppier than Monarch. But again, for the price, you can't go wrong!
Good reliable ammo for a good price. God bless the United States of America!
I have used this ammo through my whole training, and have not had one malfunction. From order to delivery everything went smooth. Thanks Lucky Gunner. God bless the United States of America!
not a bad price and good round.
After surfing the net, prices were just a little hire everywhere else. Federals a good round and after going through about 500 to 1000 rounds i cant complain. No malfunctions on my glock 40 cal, glock 23 and 27. it was shipped straight to my door which is convenient, ha and i live in california. You know what i mean. Go luckygunner.com!!!
