In a self-defense situation, every second counts. Not only that, but every factor counts as well from how much range time and realistic training you had to what handgun you’re carrying to what ammunition you’ve got that gun loaded with. And if you think you’re covered just because you load your gun with defense rounds, you’re wrong; not all defense ammunition is created equal. Different rounds have varying expansion and penetration capabilities not to mention velocity, energy, drift, drop, the list is practically endless. Read on to learn what Federal has to offer your 9mm for self-defense.
These are lightweight 105 grain rounds so they’re going to zip towards your target in record time, and that lighter weight also means there’s less felt recoil, which makes follow-up shots and accuracy easier to manage. This is EFMJ – Expanding Full Metal Jacket – ammunition, and it’s an entirely unique type of defense ammunition. Some guns don’t cycle HPs well, and Federal addresses that problem with these Guard Dog rounds. They’re FMJ with an expanding polymer so they strike your target and begin to expand, reducing over-penetration risks. Although they don’t expand as fully as an actual HP or SP round, they do expand and are an excellent choice for those with finicky guns.
Each round moves down-range like lightning with a muzzle velocity of 1230 feet per second and hammers home with a muzzle energy of 353 foot-pounds. Shooters trying out this ammunition say it’s capable of penetrating heavy layers of clothing and testing shows it travels approximately 15” into ballistic gel before stopping when fired from a Smith and Wesson M and P at 10 yards. You get 20 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. Federal manufactures ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota, and produces these rounds in nickel-plated brass cases with boxer primer. Order now and keep your 9mm ready for whatever may come.
