- Q & A
During World War II Joyce Hornady worked as a marksmanship instructor for the military, and after the war he noticed the quality of surplus ammunition hitting the market wasn’t meeting the needs of hunters or target shooters. He decided to fix the problem himself by making high-quality bullets, and it didn’t take long for him to realize he could manufacture the entire round to a high standard. Within the very first year of business it was clear Hornady was a success, and after the second year their profits had tripled. Hornady believed ammunition should meet a specific standard of performance, and coined the phrase “ten bullets through one hole.” To this day Hornady ammunition meets its founders original expectations, and then some.
These 9mm rounds are lightweight at just 115 grain, and that means they’re going to reach your target with phenomenal speed. They’re Hornady’s XTP rounds and are designed to expand on impact with superior weight retention. Each bullet has a swaged core and a copper jacket with six strategically-placed serrations designed for carefully controlled expansion; XTP bullets deliver deeper penetration than standard HP rounds and create catastrophic wound tracks. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1155 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 341 foot-pounds. These are superior defense rounds capable of fantastic stopping power.
There are 250 defense rounds in this box of ammunition from Hornady. Production takes place at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska, and each and every round adheres to their strict standards. Defense rounds have more felt recoil and greater power overall than target rounds do, making it absolutely vital you put in target time with defense ammunition. You’ll only be truly comfortable with their recoil and capable of good accuracy and follow-up shots with hands-on practice, and that means putting more than a few Hornady XTP rounds through your gun. In a life-threatening situation, you want every possible factor in your favor. Order now, and train smart.
