Federal has added two new Federal Premium Hydra-Shok Deep loads to better meet modern handgun performance measurements. Shipments have been delivered to dealers. 

In 2018, Federal reinvented the proven Hydra-Shok bullet design with Hydra-Shok Deep in 9 mm Luger. Now, it has expanded the line with new loads in .40 S&W and .45 Auto. The bullets feature a more robust center post and a core design that penetrates to critical depths through common self-defense barriers, without over-penetrating. 

Features and Benefits

  • Penetrates 15” in bare ballistics gel and through heavy clothing—the optimal depth according to FBI standards
  • Improved penetration to optimal depths
  • Significant improvement in FBI protocol score
  • Iconic center post design has been improved for better, more consistent expansion through standard barriers
  • Consistent, specially formulated propellant
  • Federal primer
