A proven self defense round, the Hydra-Shok 9mm 124 grain jacketed hollow point from Federal Premium is a stalwart in the self-defense offerings for 9mm ammunition. They are perennially among the best producers for high end self-defense ammunition because they have proven engineering and value added components.
A nickel plated brass casing with a Boxer primer offers clean easy feeding and extraction with the potential to be reloaded, while the obvious component part hat puts it in the top contenders is the Hydra Shok bullet. 124 grain weight is a good middle ground for the 9mm and allows for a 1120 muzzle velocity, and offers good penetration and proven stopping power.
The powder is noticeably cleaner burning than comparable rounds and the projectile has been around since 1988 virtually unchanged. That speaks volumes to the capacity of this hollow point design and the expansion properties. Countless ballistic gelatin tests have been done form the FBI lab to the popular you tube channel; Hydra-Shok is consistently a top performer.
Suitable for any firearm that needs premium ammunition for self-defense in 9mm.
