- Q & A
Many gun owners have their AR-15s for home defense, for multiple reasons. Those reasons include the fact that they can be used from behind concealment, keeping more of your body hidden than compared to while using a pistol, and, of course, because they produce far more velocity and energy than handguns. There’s also the psychological aspect; many criminals are far more intimidated by the appearance of an AR-15 than by handguns. And if you’re going to use your AR-15 for home defense, you need to make sure you keep it safely loaded and ready with quality defense rounds.
Defense rounds are a must not only because they mushroom and create a massive wound but because they decelerate as they expand. That deceleration helps prevent over-penetration, which in turn helps protects innocent bystanders from injury. At 64 grain these are medium-weight rounds but are still plenty light enough to reach high speeds. These are Soft Point (SP) rounds and begin to expand immediately on impact. SPs expand more slowly than standard HPs, which allows them to penetrate more fully and create a bigger wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3090 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1357 foot-pounds. This ammunition is well suited for hunting and home defense.
There are 20 rounds in this single box of Federal ammunition. That’s just enough to keep your gun loaded and ready for self-defense purposes. If you want to get target practice in, you’ll need to order more than one box. Federal produces this ammunition in brass cases with boxer primer, so you can reload your spent casings. Federal was founded in 1922 and has spent almost 100 years coming up with new and innovative ways to meet the needs of gun owners. Ammunition is manufactured at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards.
