Federal Champion Ammo.

Been reading a lot about problems with weak 9mm Federal Champion Ammo. It is on the low end as far as power. But if it's all I can get I use it. Well look at what I got at the range on a new open box yesterday. Sorry for th poor quality photo. I only have my webcam.
I've seen this before on some WWB 45 I've had. After reading about some 9mm WWB causing bulged barrels I just want to remund veron to check your ammo over before you put it in the mag.

I always ALWAYS check all my factory ammo before I put it in my blue range boxes. It takes only two minutes to check 100 rounds.

Good advice.

I always give each round a quick look and feel before loading the mag up. If paying to shoot at the indoor range I try to load up as many mags as possible at home, and then I am not worried about hurrying at the range.

I have 12 mags for my most used range gun. I can always keep it well under the 1hr mark if I show up with them all loaded.

I have 2 rounds 45ACP fresh out the box. One is set about 1/8'" and the other about 3/16" too far. I called and e-mailed pictures.They were impossible to deal with.
