The enhanced bullet design that makes the Federal Premium Hydra-Shok lineup such a popular self-defense round is now offered in a potent .380 ACP load. This is the first Hydra-Shok Deep load developed for the .380 ACP, offering is the first expanding .380 ACP load to consistently penetrate beyond the FBI-recommended 12-inch minimum.
Like all Hydra-Shok Deep loads, the bullet features a robust center post and core design to ensure it penetrates to critical depths through common self-defense barriers, without over-penetrating. Each round is loaded with Federal Premium's specially developed propellant, and the cases are primed with the company's incredibly reliable primers and sealed against moisture.
