Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryan D from Fantastic ammo! I buy the AE 147s because they cycle both my 9mms perfectly, and they are a ballistic match to the 147 grain HST I use for personal protection. I’ve never had an issue with AE in any weight, but the 147s are supremely accurate out to 25 yards. I finished 26 out of 150 in my last local GSSF match shooting this ammo. Great stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by I prefer flat point 9mm from I echo WAcompShooter review below This weekend I picked up box of new AE9FP with the new bullet profile, longer overall length and no crimp. See the review below. I am very disappointed the older AE9FP with crimp and shorter overall length was my favorite centerfire cartridge; it was simply fabulous for the price. All the positive online reviews echoed this for the older AE9FP bullet profile with crimp. Shooting the newer AE9FP loading this last weekend I guess maybe it was loaded hotter as the review below stated. I think the older AE9FP bullet averaged approximately 950-960 FPS from a four inch barrel; the newer AE9FP bullet profile I assume is loaded to full 1000 fps as stated on the box from four inch barrel to better mimic the Federal 147 HST (and other 147 grain hollow point offerings) that are generally loaded to 1000 fps from a four inch barrel. I really liked the older AE9FP shorter overall bullet length for better ease of feeding. I am disappointed, the newer AE9FP looks to be cheaper to manufacture without the crimp; although I understand presumably loading to 1000 fps so this newer AE9FP round will be a better training round mimic for agencies issuing 147 grain HST as an example. I much prefer flat point FMJ bullets, I humbly believe more accurate and better general purpose round. Winchester recently came out with a Select line of FMJ and the 9mm 115 grain is a flat point although I am skeptical this Winchester Select line is loaded to Federal American Eagle standards. I really wish the Federal American Eagle 115 grain 9mm was a flat point instead of traditional round ball; the advantages of a lighter bullet when it comes to less carry weight, generally lower price and I humbly believe flat points are more accurate and a better general purpose round.

Rated 2 out of 5 by WAcompShooter from Changed loading, for the worse. I've bought cases and cases of AE9FP for years. It was my favorite 9mm FMJ. However, recently they changed the load, my guess is to save money. Different shape bullet, no crimped case (see picture). But worst of all, noticeably more recoil. Was my go to competition round, now I'll be looking elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CZ CCW from Great round for a great price I bought these because I carry federal HST 147 gr and wanted to practice with a similar round. I’ve run through nearly 1000 rounds without a failure in my CZ 75 compact. They’re a heckuva lot cleaner than my buddy’s Remington 115’s and at least as clean as anything else I’ve shot. If you’re looking to shoot something similar to what you carry and want a cheap (this is around 6 cents per round cheaper than anything else I’ve found in 147 gr), reliable practice ammo, this is it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Frank S from Way Too Hot !!! I used to use this Ammo in Competition but for a while now it's way too powerful. It always was kinda on the hot side but now it's way too hot. The recoil is too much, i feel it in my hand. Talked to a few other shooters who used to use it, same response. Can't understand why they need this ammo to go 1,000 fps. If they set it up to go 925 fps out of a Glock 17, it would still be very accurate, less recoil, make PF and still cycle with a stock recoil spring.. Now I have to buy my 147Gr uspsa ammo from a reloader. Too bad because i've used this ammo for years, maybe they will figure it out someday and take a few grains out and make it managable to shoot again..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ricky30 from Best Competition Ammo !!! I load my own 147 Gr. for local matches & practice but I use this American Eagle 147 GR. Flat Point for all Major Matches. I cannot get my reloads to shoot as good as this ammo and i've tried everything.. This ammo shoots 2" groups @ 25 yards in 3 different guns, my reloads dont come close. Whoever designed this round is a Genius. I actually shoot faster times with this ammo too. I agree with the other reviewer, if Federal ever changes anything to this round they will be making a HUGE mistake.. This is the Best shooting, perfect power factor, laser accuracy, cleanest ammo ever made.. I've been shooting USPSA for 6 years and never thought I would find factory ammo that's better than my custom reloads, but I did.. Thank You Federal and please DON'T change anything..

Rated 5 out of 5 by SB252 from Very good ammo I've fired about 500 rounds of these through my Beretta PX4. No issues what so ever. I've also fired about 100 rounds through my wife's Taurus P709 slim. The P709 had issues with a couple of other brands and types of ammo but not a single issue using the AE 147g FNJ-FN. It's a very good consistent ammo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Millstone from Great practice ammo! My Glock 19 eats anything! This is easy to find and usually one of the less expensive alternatives. I prefer Federal Ammo since I know what I'm getting. This is the Budweiser of 9mm practice ammo.
