Federal's American Eagle line of ammunitionis another good value. Using 124-grain full-metal jacketed bullets that leave the muzzle at 1,120 fps, in all brass, fully reloadable cases, these are produced at the same factory as the Federal Premium ammunition. This load is made to the same ballistic specifications as Federal Premium's other ammunition, so there shouldn't be much a difference in performance, if any. Of all the "inexpensive" lines of ammunition on the market, I've been a fan of American Eagle for years, both pistol ammo and rifle loads as large as .338 Lapua. It has proven its value time and time again. Priced at just over $14 per box of 50, with some packages offering practice ammo along with ballistically identical self-defense rounds, this is my favorite choice for plinking ammo in the 9mm handguns.
