Premium Metallic Crap.

Just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

The bronze is different from the regular PMC, which I agree with fly on, it's crap. The bronze however, is much better and for handgun and even carbine ammo, it isn't bad. My billet AR still shoots it sub MOA. Not as good as my hand loads or as match grade factory rounds, but great for plinking.

Well finally got my 45 tactical out to the range today and tried a box of the federal champion.

The Good, is that is was much cleaner firing. The Bad is that I had a few Fail to ejects and twice the slide failed to lock back at the end of the mag. Brand new gun so could be the spring was tight and just some break in needed. Noticed on the shells that one side was blackend, so maybe some gas leakage or something

Anyway, bought a box of the Mexican stuff at the range and all 50 rounds shot fine, and it didn't have the carbon marks like the federal did.

May try another box of federal anyway cause Cabella's has it on sale for $15.99 a box, can get a case shipped to the store for $319.

On a side note can anyone recommend a good speed loader. Think at most I could get 10 rounds in the 15 round mags, and was pretty much shooting 5 round loads cause the mags are so tight.
