- Q & A
The 9mm is immensely popular on a global level: it’s been manufactured in more than 70 countries and is the standard issue for NATO and countless military and law enforcement agencies around the world, and civilians favor it for its stopping power combined with a lesser recoil and lower prices. Renowned firearms expert Massad Ayoob prefers the 9mm for his personal carry needs and has spoken at length about the various pressures for the cartridge. Special operations forces operators from Delta Force and the SEALs have carried the 9mm into combat. And scientists say the cartridge is more than capable of creating hydrostatic shock through remote wounding. For many firearms enthusiasts, this round as it all.
These are 115 grain rounds, so they’re fairly lightweight for 9mm cartridges. Their lighter weight increases their speed capabilities and can also reduce recoil somewhat as well as allowing for longer practice time since it is less likely to tire out your hands. These rounds have an impressive muzzle velocity of 1,180 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 356 foot-pounds. They’re JHP – jacketed hollow point – rounds, so they mushroom on impact and immediately begin to decelerate, creating a devastating wound track. In addition, their jackets are made of extra-strong metal, which not only increases strength overall but decreases lead fouling in your gun’s barrel.
Federal was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, and in the nearly 100 years they’ve been in business, they’ve been fine-tuning their manufacturing process. These defense rounds are created to stringent standards at their Anoka, Minnesota, plant, and you can have confidence in their quality and reliability. Shooters who have used this ammunition praise its reliable feeding and ejecting as well as its grouping. You get a whopping 1,000 rounds in this box of ammunition, and that gives you the ability to train for self-defense on a large scale, which is a fantastic opportunity. Don’t you want to train to become a far more adept self-defense shooter?
