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

Hornady American Gunner is a dependable choice for both target training and self-defense. These 9mm Luger cartridges come in boxes of 25 and fire a light 115 grain Hornady XTP jacketed hollow point bullet. The high-penetration design of the XTP complements the expansion potential of the high-velocity loading to produce a highly effective defensive load. This is a standard pressure load equally at home in compact and full-size handguns alike. This ammunition is loaded in the USA using non-corrosive primers and reloadable brass cases.

Ballistic Gel Testing

 

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Hornady Ammunition 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a S&W M&P Shield with a 3.1-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Hornady Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo we have tested so far.

    Very tolerable recoil in an 18 oz. pistol. Good accuracy and clean.

    Absolutely love this load. All I buy for hollow points anymore. Fantastic price to performance ratio. Absolutely zero malfunctions in any of the firearms we've used this in.
