Self-defense is a serious matter and should never be taken on lightly. If you carry your handgun for personal protection purposes you should be spending significant time working on becoming more proficient at the range, and you should also keep your daily carry weapon loaded with high-quality defense rounds. At the range it’s important to work on skills beyond the basic standing in front of a target with an unholstered gun and burning through a few mags of ammunition. Firing from a holstered position is absolutely vital as is firing from kneeling and prone positions. You can’t know what you’ll face while fighting for your life or the life of someone you love, so make sure your training is extensive.
When it comes to self-defense ammunition there are a lot of choices out there, but only some are truly well-made rounds that perform reliably. You want a round that not only feeds and ejects consistently but offers reliable expansion and good stopping power, and if those sounds like simple matters, guess again. The most common expanding round is the Hollow Point and there are a surprising number of guns out there that have trouble cycling them. Also, many HPs get clogged by heavy materials and barriers which hinders expansion and also sometimes over-penetrate despite being designed not to. Fortunately, Federal has an answers to these issues: Federal Guard Dog.
These Federal Guard Dog rounds are incredibly lightweight at just 135 grain. They’re EFMJ rounds: Expanding Full Metal Jacket. That means they’re FMJ-style rounds with expanding polymer in their nose. According to experienced shooters these rounds expand without clogging and decelerate reliably to prevent over-penetration. This ammunition is designed specifically for superior self-defense use and each round has a muzzle velocity of 1200 feet per second. Federal produces these rounds in nickel-plated brass cases so you can see them more easily in dim lighting and also for a longer shelf-life and better cycling. Boxer primer is also used and the spent cases can be reloaded. There are 20 defense rounds in this box. Get real peace of mind by loading your .40 S&W with Federal Guard Dog.
