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

A reliable 9x19 defense ammo that has stood the test of time, Federal jacketed hollow points have proven stopping power. Federal has been producing quality, innovative ammunition since 1922, and is one of the most-recognized names in the shooting world. With a muzzle velocity of 1225 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 383 foot pounds, these JHP rounds deliver a fine balance between expansion and penetration, whether you’re shooting stationary paper targets, running repetitive tactical drills, or loading your self-defense weapon.

Each factory fresh Federal 9mm Luger (9x19 Parabellum) cartridge is loaded with a high-quality JHP projectile that weighs in at 115 grains. This bullet is designed to expand upon contact with a soft target, which typically makes it a better choice for a self-defense than a full metal jacket round would be. This Federal 9mm ammunition is non-corrosive and features boxer primed, reloadable brass cases. Each box contains 50 rounds.

    Not the best expanding round but a very soft shooting round in my G19 and MP Shield. Definitely a good entry level HP bullet!

    this load could be used for a strategic reserve to keep jhp in a bad situation.
    This load is too light for intermediate barriers. What I saw in home testing is a deforming of the bullet instead of a true flower petal.
    This load has been shown to be very accurate and reliable in most pistols.
    I would probably carry and practice with this load. As a civilian I wouldnt be dealing with barriers.

    Ran great thru my ruger P95. Very accurate. Wouldn't think twice about using it for carry. And a bargain price is always nice.

    Fired flawlessly through my Walther PPX, accurate,
    115gr didn't produce any muzzle flip.
    At this cost per round a bargain!
