Small caliber semi-autos offer excellent concealment but require the use of high-performance ammunition to achieve the penetration and stopping power needed for self-defense. This is why those who rely on a .380 auto for protection need to equip it with Federal Hydra-Shok .380 Auto 90gr. JHP.
You will notice that this .380 self-defense round utilizes a center post hollow point bullet and notched copper jacket. The result more efficient energy transfer and controlled expansion which allows for increased penetration and greater retention of stopping power. Designed to provide superior accuracy and performance at a reduced recoil makes this a favorite among high volume .380 shooters.
The deep penetration of this center post jacketed hollow point bullet satisfies even the FBI’s strict testing requirements so there it is no wonder it has become so popular with self-defense concealed carry holders as well.
Each round of this Federal ammo is produced domestically utilizing a 90gr. low recoil Hydra-Shok bullet, nickel-plated brass case and non-corrosive, boxer primer.
