No question this 9x19 load was made for stopping threats. It is a duty cartridge through and through. The penetration is next level (penetration of nearly 20 inches after entering 10% gelatin at 10 feet); the uniformity across shots of expansion and wound channel are incredible. The 147 grain weight offers significant lead on target, and the numbers don’t lie. The slightly milder recoil is an added bonus when you look at what is needed in a defensive scenario. This Hornady Custom load has it all!
The penetration and expansion consistency is a truly special thing, which denotes not only impeccable engineering, but unbelievably good quality control and consistency in manufacturing. The velocities are consistently at 975 feet per second with a muzzle energy at 310 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle. The expansion regardless of the testing scenario means this load can hold up to real world situations and give you the upper hand in a gunfight.
Hornady custom is a proven winner for those needing one shot stopping power in a 9mm cartridge. It is suitable for feeding and reliable extraction and functioning in all mainstream 9mm firearms and is particularly well suited to medium and large frame weapons, but will function most small frame and subcompacts as well.
