    I like Federal American Eagle 9mm for range ammo. Reliable, Acceptable accuracy, good price, and great brass cases to reload. It needs to be more accurate to be use in a target match. But who knows, maybe your firearms will love the stuff and reward you with extremely tight groups.

    I dont have anything in 9mm, but I have used Federal American Eagle in other calibers and have no complaints.

    That's all I shoot. I have 4 unopened cases of that product plus many more in ammo cans. I have a S&W MP 9mm 2.0 4" barrel with over 750 rounds thru it. All 124 gr. American Eagle Federal. Not a single problem. I don't think it shoots dirty but I don't reload. I'm staying with it and my Federal 147 gr. HST. Buy it.

    They all go bang in MY guns. I like the 105 grain Lee SWC over 2.3 grains of B'eye. It's light, but enough to work the action. I haven't been reloading 9mm lately, too cheap just to buy it, but that has changed, over here at least. I'm kind of a stickler for accuracy, but the best I can get out of any 9x19 is about 3" at 25 yards from a sandbag rest. It ain't the most inherently accurate cartridge. .45s beat it six ways to Sunday. But, 3" is accurate enough to play with. I wouldn't shoot a B'eye shoot with it, though. But, I quite enjoy just plinking on my steel gong target.

    Reloads, most of my pistols have never seen factory ammo.

    The Federal American Eagle 124 grain loading is one of my preferred factory loadings if I can find it reasonably priced.
    I will use it when I'm not shooting my own reloads and I will reload it's brass.

    The way things are now with 9mm ammo. You're lucky to even find any.

    Back before things got crazy I bought a couple 1000 round cases of Winchester and Remington plain old brown box for plinking. I think it was right at $9 a box.

    I have a bunch of the 150 round yellow box 124gr Browning too. I've never had a problem with any of the 9mm I've tried so far.

    Few weeks ago I paid over .40 a round for the 147gr Speer just because it was sub sonic and I have a 9mm can on the way.

    I use Lawman ammo from Speer and Barnual (Russian made) SilverBear ammo both in 115.gr.guise. Silver Bear is nickel coated steel cases, but does well in my Ruger P-95s and Taurus Mil Pros.
