Federal Ammunition 147 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Affordable self-defense ammunition upholds a certain egalitarian principle that we all hold near and dear to our hearts. Sure, there are people out there who can afford bulk shipments of 950 JDJ with gold jacketed, palladium tipped projectiles, but when anyone can afford a reliable 9mm round like this one by Federal, the playing field is bound to stay nice and level.

Federal makes their ammo affordable not by depriving it of quality, but by applying nearly one century worth of research, development, and technological innovation to everything that they do. That means this round is poised to do you right should you ever have to count on it. Its 147 grain projectile is a Hi-Shok, a jacketed hollow point that resists clogging with debris during penetration that it may dependably deliver powerful expansion and energy transfer. Its notched jacket is tightly secured to its core, permitting it to travel deeply as it widens for pretty disastrous terminal effect.

Federal’s new production brass casing is just the stuff for handloading, and their clean propellant and non-corrosive primer are gentle on the firearms they burn in. This law enforcement grade ammo is great for stockpiling, and its agreeable price tag means you’ll be able to stomach training with it as well.
