A solid priced defensive round from Federal Premium in their “Law Enforcement” line. The 230 grain hollow point is a proven round paired with a projectile that has, time and again, been proven reliable for expansion and weight retention.
For a 230 grain projectile this achieves good velocity: 900 feet per second, leading to better penetration and great expansion. The 414 ft. lbs. of energy is adequate for the round and offers a very heavy hitting projectile for defensive use. The controlled expansion of the Hydra-Shok round reliably performs in laboratory and real world scenarios.
An excellent price on a legitimate round that is in use in the line of duty and carried on civilian firearms everywhere by thousands of people who know the ballistics of the .45ACP and the reliability and stopping power of the Hydra-Shok combine to offer one of the finest self defense packages in the world.
The patented stem of the Hydra-Shok bullet is the secret to center out expansion which has led to a proven history of the projectile expanding uniformly in ballistic gelatin tests. Federal hasn’t had to deviate much from the original engineering of the round but slight improvements are made on occasion to improve the already legendary line.
