Federal Premium Announces Hydra-Shok Deep

Federal Premium Ammunition has announced a new personal-defense option, the Hydra-Shok Deep, which provides up to 50 percent deeper penetration than original Hydra-Shok

Original Hydra-Shok has been a self-defense staple since its creation in 1989 in response to the FBI’s request for a projectile with better terminal ballistics than traditional cup-and-core bullets. The Hydra-Shok bullet’s notched jacket, non-bonded lead core and unique center-post hollow-point design produced better penetration and more consistent threat-stopping expansion than other bullets at the time. 

As FBI performance requirements and protocol have evolved, Hydra-Shok Deep was created to meet modern standards. Testing shows that Hydra-Shok Deep penetrates 15" in bare ballistics gelatin, which is the optimal depth, according to FBI standards.

“Hydra-Shok Deep offers consumers a round that results in consistent, reliable performance through typical defensive barriers and penetrates to the depth deemed optimum by the leading law-enforcement agency in the United States,” said Larry Head, director and chief engineer of handgun ammunition.
