This round is tipped with a 180 grain projectile, which is a common weight for its caliber. As a full metal jacket it shouldn’t be your first choice for self-defense, but its economical construction, ability to prevent barrel leading, and the ease with which it transitions from magazine to chamber are going to serve you well as you’re putting the hurting to targets ranging from paper to empty soda can.
This round’s aluminum shell casing houses Federal’s sensitive Boxer primer, which stays potent indefinitely if you treat it well in storage. Federal’s propellant is formulated to burn cleanly, so count on firing this whole box before it becomes time for Hoppe’s.
