This cartridge is loaded with clean-burning powder and a sensitive Boxer primer, which ignite in tandem to provide optimal chamber pressure for a small-frame handgun. A failure to feed or extract is never a savory prospect during a life-or-death scenario, but this ammo’s nickel-plated brass cases do reduce friction to promote smoother cycling in a semi-automatic. Nickel is also corrosion resistant, which will help prevent the rounds from becoming coarse when they’re exposed to sweat and humidity.
This ammo’s bullets are 124 grain brass jacketed hollow points. The BJHP’s exterior is stronger than the gilding metal typically used to create jackets, so it’s tough enough to reliably penetrate to an effective depth for self-defense applications. But because the jacket is strategically weakened by spiral cut notches, it’s able to fan out at velocities up to 100 feet per second slower than a normal JHP. That helps compensate for a short-barreled pistol’s lower muzzle velocities!
