Federal American Eagle Suppressor Line of Ammunition Delivers Reliable Subsonic Loads for Competition and Range Use With or Without a Suppressor

September 16, 2015

ANOKA, Minn. - September 16, 2015 - As suppressed firearms have gained popularity for competition, hunting and range use in recent years, Federal Premium Ammunition has turned down the volume without sacrificing performance with its lineup of American Eagle® Suppressor ammunition. Specifically designed for use in suppressed firearms, these subsonic rounds (available in .22 LR, 9mm, .45 Auto and 300 AAC Blackout) are priced for volume shooting and they give consumers an even more accurate, economical and enjoyable round of competition or day at the range.

Federal American Eagle Suppressor ammunition delivers superior accuracy, reliability and cleanliness in suppressed firearms, thanks to carefully selected propellants, bullet weights and profiles. The subsonic loading for the 9mm, 45 Auto, 300 Blackout and 22LR not only lend themselves to better noise reduction through the suppressor itself, they also reduce it by avoiding the ballistic crack inherent to supersonic loads. 

In addition, special clean-burning powders to make it easy for shooters to clean their weapons—other conventional ammunition can cause severe fouling in suppressed firearms. 

Features & Benefits 
- Bullet weights and profiles carefully selected for suppressed firearms 
- Clean burning powders for easier cleanup 
- Lower cost for volume shooting 
- Reliable function and feeding
