- Q & A
Accuracy is a vital part of effective self-defense shooting. One measure of accuracy is whether you can shoot combat accurate groups, meaning you can keep your shots within an 8-inch circle. Of course, even if you can do that the saying in the gun world is that when you end up in a life-or-death situation you’re going to be shooting 16-to-24 inch groups instead. Seasoned combat veterans will tell you the only way to perform well under stress is by performing under stress. Repeatedly. But they’ll also say training is enormously valuable because habit and muscle memory can save your life in a firefight. Since you’re unlikely to find yourself in the position to condition yourself to high-stress scenarios, go with high-volume training with the help of large amounts of ammunition.
These 9mm rounds are pretty lightweight at 115 grain. They’re JHP’s, delivering controlled expansion on impact while also slowing down, features that create a devastating, deep wound track while also preventing over-penetration. Jacketing also prevents lead fouling in your gun’s barrel which becomes more important when you use this ammunition to train. This ammunition moves quick with a muzzle velocity of 1160 feet per second and it reaches your target with a muzzle energy of 344 foot-pounds. These are virgin brass-cased rounds with boxer primer, so you can reload them, making this a great deal because you can pretty much fire as much as you can reload. They’re also non-corrosive which is good for your gun.
There are 500 defense rounds in this box. If you believe you only need enough defense ammunition to load a mag or two, you’re wrong. Defense ammunition has more recoil and greater power than target rounds, so they feel and behave differently. If you aren’t accustomed to those differences, you won’t be able to manage the follow-up shots and accuracy necessary in a high-stress situation. Federal manufactures this ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. They have almost 100 years of experience in this industry and a practically unparalleled reputation for excellence. Don’t take anything for granted. Load your carry weapon with high-quality defense rounds – and practice.
