Default American Eagle .45 ACP $9.49 per 50 ct box

A long history LGS here in Ohio has been selling internet for a few years now and have posted some good internet deals lately.

Woodbury Outfitters in Coshocton, Ohio is having an ammo sale with a coupon code " 20BUCKS " that gives a $20 discount on a $100 purchase
and free shipping.

If you purchase American Eagle pistol ammo, you can also send in for the

This will make a 7 box purchase of AE .45 acp 230 grn ball, $9.49 a box.

I bought a couple boxes when I bought my Ruger GP-100 and the wife's S&W 686 (both 357 mag) and it shot fine.
I needed the brass to reload while I was waiting for some Starline brass and a few thousand X-Treme plated bullets.

I had no complaints.
What do you know that I overlooked or need to know?

The only ammo we buy is carry ammo as in 40S&W HST's and 9mm HST's.

Spill the beans.
Lay some "know" on me....

Hasn't been my experience at all ,shot 5-6000 rds. of .223 and closer to
15000 of there 9mm. Of all the "generic/white box" ammo I've shot its
way better than those.
What calibers and what issues did you have with them?

30-06 and 45
the 30-06 at 100 yards was like a shot gun all over the place not rhyme or reason from a gun that shoots sub MOA loaded up some speer hunting rounds to check it was not the gun,
BAM 1/2 MOA groups

45 shooting @21 feet and getting an 8" group no matter what,
change to blazer brass of all things and speer both shot 5" or less groups.

now that was some years ago and I have never bought the ammo since so things might have changed? I Shure hope so it shot about as good as when MFS first came out

Funny.... a few years ago at one of our local High Power matches, a dude showed up late with a Garand and an armful of American Eagle 30-06 ammunition. He had to shoot a relay by himself and I watched him shoot amazing offhand groups with that shitty ammunition. Overall, he did very well in the match.

I can see where that would put a shit taste in your mouth about that ammo. My son had similar results years ago with Remington Core-Lokt ammo in his .270. We both swore we'd throw rocks before we'd buy & use that ammo.

Glad I load my own. Got no body to blame but myself if it sucks...

My MK23 seems to love American Eagle. 45. Shoots decent groups off hand at 100 yards and runs pretty clean suppressed.
