The Federal Cartridge Company, headquartered in Anoka, Minnesota, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems. The company was founded in 1916 and has since become one of the finest names in the ammunition industry. Today, the company manufactures a complete line of rimfire ammunition, centerfire ammunition and shotshells – they even have a production contract with the United States Military. Federal ammunition has been used during multiple Olympic Games in which the U.S. team brought home gold, silver and bronze medals. Pretty high-quality stuff if you ask me.
Federal AE9AP 9mm ammunition is a product from the American Eagle line of ammunition. American Eagle ammunition is marketed as precision practice ammunition, and though it is inexpensive, it offers an uncanny accuracy on par with the more expensive brands. Like all Federal ammunition, Federal AE9AP 9mm ammunition is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, which is an interesting aspect of the ammunition in itself. LCAAP is a government-owned, contractor-operated munitions facility that was originally established in 1941 for the manufacture and testing of small arms ammunition for the United States Army. Since 2001, it has been operated by Alliant Techsystems and is the largest manufacturer of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army.
That said each package of Federal AE9AP 9mm ammunition contains 50 non-corrosive, brass-cased cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 124 gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for increased muzzle velocities. These cartridges have been observed to travel at speeds in excess of 1,150 fps. All Federal ammunition is manufactured using fully-reloadable, newly-manufactured brass cases as well as non-corrosive Boxer primers. Additionally, all cartridges are visually inspected prior to leaving the manufacturing plant.
Now, I do not claim to know how the world will end – it will probably involve some sort of radioactive monsters wiping out humankind. If you want to defend yourself, you should probably pick up some Federal AE9AP 9mm ammunition while you still can. Consider this 9mm ammunition for:
- Target shooting
- Recreational shooting
- Much more…
