FEDERAL HYDRA SHOK

an older round. to see for oneself, by a box, shoot steel plates, usually 1/2" thick/ 6" x 4" 's, check the plate- the round makes a mushroom mark and it seems to almost rip the plate off the hinges.

As of this moment, Hornady 115gr FTX Critical Defense, however I see the round I have been considering a switch to is highly recommended. Think my next range trip will include Federal HST 124gr. Always love the knowledge and experience in this forum.

Well, I kinda use a "mixed" bag of JHP's. My favorite are the Remington Golden Sabres, but I also use Independence 115 grainers, Hornady Critical Defense 115's, and the Winchester "Defend" 9mm's too. They all run fine in my Shield.
