    "This is some good shoot"
    I bought this for my Cimarron Model P 45LC/45ACP dual cylinder revolver and shot through the ACP cylinder, of course, with this ammo from 10 and 25 yards. I was hitting the bullseye from 10 yards like nothing. I recommend this ammo for any 45 ACP handgun. I also bought 45LC ammo for my other cylinder but haven't had the chance to shoot it yet. I cant wait. When I cleaned my gun later that night there was not a lot of build up which was satisfying.

    Surprised
    Coming from speding too much on some other top brands, I tried Federal based on the reviews. It wasn't too dirty at all...I expected more based on the reviews. Love the price and the quality didn't seem any less than other top brands.

    Great shell
    Was looking for a shell and choke combination for those high flying afternoon doves. These shells combined with a patternmaster anaconda long range choke are the ticket. High flying birds don't stand a chance.

    Always Faithful
    Throughout my life from age 7 to now 32 I have fired over 5,000 shells from Federal in 8 shot form and I have never had one issue in performance. Absolutely no failures to fire and no issues with quality of components. With all that said I do prefer 7.5 to 8 for training but will readily use 8 with no hesitation. Federal and Winchester do great in providing us good quality shells for a very descent value and that is absolutely essential for tactical and defense training on top of hunting and game.

    home defense
    I bought these for the judge pistol, I wanted something that I could rely on without having the concern of shooting through my walls and then the neighbors and possibly hurting an innocent neighbor in the case of intrusion. the 410 round is perfect it has plenty of knock down power with the 000 buck but its only good for short distances, in no way am I saying hey these are safe to shoot in the house, but what I am saying as compared to a 357, 44, 45, .223, or 7.26, while the 000 has plenty of ... read more short range knock down power, they have a lot less distance and your doing the best you can to defend yourself from thugs while still considering the safety of the ones around you.

    Best Powder Trickler Available
    I looked at several powder tricklers and decided on the Frankford due to it's weight and stability. It has a nice heavy rubber base that can be used as a cover when not in use. This trickler will not slide around or trip over.

    Great All-Purpose Ammunition
    Throughout my life from age 9 to 17 I used the M193 as my preferred ammunition for range and plinking. At 17 I joined the Marine Corps, did several tours in the Middle East and South West Asia then became a military contractor for the D.o.D. and then became a deputy sheriff in Florida. In the case someone can’t afford defensive .223 or 5.56 ammunition due to its atrocious cost I’d recommend the M193 round due to its consistent velocities at short ranges, the lighter 55 grain bullet that yaws ... read more immediately in flesh and its reliability. (Note, this bullet does have high probability of going into an adult and punching through them so watch your background). In the thousands of M193 rounds I have fired I have never had one issue in performance that I can recall. Absolutely no failures to fire, failures to eject, failures to feed, or anything else and no issues with quality of components. Federal and Lake City do a phenomenal job in making this ammunition.

    My Favorite Training Option when affordable
    Throughout my time as a deputy sheriff and detective I have fired approximately 1,500 rounds in Federal .357 SIG full metal jacket form and I have never had one issue in performance. Absolutely no failures to fire, failures to eject, failures to feed, or anything else and no issues with quality of components. During my time as a law enforcement officer I became aware of the power and performance of the .357 SIG and decided to make it my personal defense caliber. When on duty I use .40 S&W but ... read more .357 SIG is my choice and I do have conversion barrels for my .40 S&W pistols. My preference is to use Federal as my .357 SIG training ammunition but is its not available or affordable I use .40 S&W to train. Of course I’d much prefer the price per round to go down and be more affordable for training and testing your weapons of choice but Federal does great in providing us with good quality defense ammunition. This load fully functions and cycles in my duty issued Glock 22, my backup piece Glock 27 and also my personal Glock 23 and 35 with conversion barrels.

    Excellent Ammo
    I've been using Magtech ammo for years and never a problem regardless of the caliber. The 357 mag ammo is accurate and good for the range in solid point configuration.

    308 Dies
    I use LEE dies most times, but they were not availible. I ordered these from the website and received them within a week. Hornady is a little more expensive, but you get extra parts in the box. I have deprimed/sized and loaded only 40 rounds so far with these dies without any issues. They adjust easy and are very smooth. Also, I utilized the Hornady promo of free bullets offer.

    Great patterns.
    Bought 20ga 12 ga 3" And 12ga 3-1/2" magnum loads All 3 pattern nice for turkey loads. The 3-1/2" hit hard !!! But are effective. Haven't shot a turkey yet but based on targets in getting over 30 pellets in kill zone at 30 yards. I don't think I will have a problem dropping one with this Ammo.

    Good Bullet, Fast Service
    I needed a bullet for some long range target shooting and had some of these left over from hunting handloads, so I tried them. They worked great out to 550 yards on metal silhouettes (,270's out to 1100 yards) and I have used them for three years now. Even more impressive was Academy's shipping. I ordered them online late Sunday afternoon and they were delivered Tuesday at noon.

    Factory-like Reloads
    Fast, Free, shipping from Academy Sports all the way to Arizona. This is quality shotgun ammo that performs perfectly in my 12 gauge guns. Mild recoil and report makes shooting a hundred rounds a pleasure on the sporting clays course. The empty hulls reload beautifully on my basic equipment using a variety of components.

    Great for 5 stand

Choose the Right Size Ammunition for Your Gun

Before purchasing ammunition online, consider what type of ammunition will work with your existing rifle, shotgun, pistol or other firearm. The caliber of ammunition indicates the internal diameter of each bullet's barrel and is an easy way to determine whether a bullet will fit in your gun. A common caliber is .22 and is often followed by letters, such as .22 L and .22 S, which show that the bullets are designed to work with long-barrel and short-barrel rifles, respectively. By selecting appropriate rifle ammunition and other firearm ammunition, the incidence of jamming is greatly reduced.

Ammunition Construction

Whether you plan on using ammunition for target practice, hunting purposes or defensive measures, there is plenty of ammunition for sale from many different popular brands, including Federal ammunition and Winchester ammunition. To ensure a kill shot when hunting big game, like caribou or deer, choose hollow-tip ammunition, which has a hole in the center that allows the bullet to expand upon impact, optimizing internal damage. Bullets with a full metal jacket are perfect for shooting targets, since their casing lets them travel faster.

Rimfire or Centerfire Ammunition

Ammunition is largely divided into 2 sections - rimfire ammunition and centerfire ammunition. When it comes to choosing between the 2, centerfire ammunition is generally the better, more versatile option, since centerfire bullets travel faster than rimfire bullets, feature bigger casings and hold more gun powder.
