    Like everyone else I'm having a hard time finding 9mm ammo anywhere. Was at my LGS today and they had a bunch of this Estate 9mm in stock. Have never heard of it, And can't find many reviews of in online. From what I could find it looks like it's made by Federal. Does anybody have any experiance with it.

    It's Fed. Champion as sold at Walmart. The need to "disguise" the name should tell you something, i.e., same weak crap.

    I shoot a lot of Federal champion with no issues, so if it's the same then I'm good with that.

    This is what they sell at the indoor range we go to. We have had good luck with it also.

    All of my 9mm guns shoot federal way better than WWB and as well as the Rem green stuff.
    I really like the red Fed Champion stuff!
    What are the head stamp markings? FC? Or something else?
    Thanks.

    Out of curiousity, I looked at a box of Estate 12 ga. shells today and noticed it is imported by Federal but made in France. Cheddite I am sure as they are the largest maker of shotshells on the World.
