50rds - 9mm Federal Train + Protect 115gr. VHP Ammo

Federal Ammunition 115 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

These 9x19mm cartridges are designed to be an all-in-one option for personal protection as well as quality range practice! Federal assembles the load using their own in-house components which include non-corrosive Boxer primers, clean-burning powder, and reloadable brass casings. Each cartridge is capped off with the new Versatile Hollow Point (VHP) projectile which weighs in at 115 grains. This is a light, common weight for the 9mm caliber. Expect relatively little recoil and flat trajectories. Federal loads this cartridge specifically for ideal penetration and expansion in defensive scenarios.

The 9mm Luger VHP has a rounded ogive with a narrow mouth that will slide freely up any feed ramp. Federal's component choice aims to keep costs down so that shooters can use this one configuration for both training and defense and experience consistent performance and felt-recoil throughout all of their shooting. Federal Premium ammunition is American made and has been trusted to supply law enforcement agencies as well as Olympic shooting teams for nearly a century.
