I have used federal with great success, can't speak for all calibers though...
9mm, suppressed. My HK usp9sd eats it up.
I've never had an issue with their ammo and Dicks Sporting goods usually have a nice price on it.
I also have quite a bit of their 9x18 Makarov...it's bout all I can find around here at the moment. The Mak loves it.
For my needs and purposes, it is affordable ammo and a source of reloading brass.
The 223 rifle brass isn't the best for reloading; the primer pockets loosen up after a few loadings. Other than that, I have no quarrel with it.
Well, if I wasn't so lazy right now, I would get up and check out the sizing but this sounds like a Hi-Point issue, not an American Eagle one. It's kind of like Raven Arms telling someone to use a different ammo manufacturer.
Here are links to some of the reviews. There are links to other reviews inside each review as well.
Federal American Eagle 9mm 115 gr FMJ is good bulk economical target ammo
American Eagle 9mm Luger 147 gr TMJ ammo reduces the risk of heavy metal poisoning
American Eagle .38 Special 158 gr LRN: Good cheap target ammo for revolver shooters
9x18mm Makarov ammo by American Eagle for the pistol of the Russian Bear
In 308, so-so for me, but acceptable.
Never really used that much in the handguns, always could get (in the beforetimes) WWB or similar for cheaper. The 380 has been good in my Government Model, though. NOt as goodas the S&B, but I've not seen any of that in a great while, too.
I don't buy practice ammunition any more, but when I did, it did what I needed.
