Federal Premium goes long with new Hydra-Shok Deep ammo



Quote
Billed as providing up to 50 percent deeper penetration than either original Hydra-Shok or similar loads from competitors, the new series is set to debut this month.

With improved expansion and penetration as its calling card, the new Hydra-Shok Deep — to be offered in a 135-grain 9mm chambering with other loads coming soon — is tested to tunnel 15 inches in bare ballistics gelatin, which Federal says is optimal according to FBI standards. The new line builds on the company’s tried and true Hydra-Shok bullet loadings which were first introduced in 1989 but is more robust to meet modern challenges.

It will be interesting to see what its velocity rating is. The added weight at 135 grs. definitely enhances penetration.

I just wish they would sell their bullets to handloaders. They are selling some cases now, so maybe bullets are next.  :icon_wink:
