Review: Federal Syntech .45 ACP Ammunition

A few months ago, Federal Ammunition announced American Eagle Syntech—a new concept for range use. While there are many highly-developed loads for personal defense, seldom has much effort been expended in developing range ammunition. American Eagle Syntech is the first range-specific ammunition designed to reduce fouling and extend barrel life with a high-tech polymer bullet coating.

.410 Loads for Self-Defense — A Carjacker’s Worst Nightmare and More

I have always loved the .410. At a young age, I was introduced to it as an alternative to the .22 long rifle for rabbits and squirrels. Due to the shot pattern, it was easier to harvest the fast moving little critters. Later, I was introduced to bird hunting and quickly realized those old men were not shooting the .410 to gain an advantage. Instead, it was a show of skill on fast-moving Bobwhite’s. However, it was when I was first introduced to the .410 for self-defense that I gained a respect for the cartridge.

Shoot Cleaner With American Eagle’s Syntech Range Ammunition

Forget whatever you previously thought about range ammunition, Federal Ammunition wants to revolutionize range ammo with the introduction of its new American Eagle Syntech. American Eagle Syntech shoots cleaner than traditional ammunition, because the bullet is encapsulated in a polymer. Without the metal to metal contact, copper and lead fouling is eliminated. This not only means more shooting and less cleaning, it leads to longer barrel life too!
