Comments

Richard Tunnell ( Thu, 06 Dec 2012 22:59:35 +0000 ) : look at the test of this crap on utube-it went thru 19" of gel, then into two gallon jugs of water and when the bullets were pulled out, there was ABSOLUTLEY NO EXPANSIOIN. You woould get the same effect with plain old round nose ammo!
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Fri, 07 Dec 2012 13:37:01 +0000 ) : To remain fair and balanced regarding the test you cited, here's a series of excerpted comments I turned up when conducting an Internet search for this 9mm JHP Federal Classic Personal Defense round . . . --- Massad Ayoob recommends this load for standard pressure 115 gr. Enough said --- a good choice, the rounds performance in ballistics gel alone was @ 10 yrds though a taurus pt92 yielded 9.8 inches of penetration and had a expansion of approx. .62 of inch. Gel w/ a flannel shirt and jean jacket yielded a penetration of 10.75 inches,while still maintaining a good shape with approx 40% deformation of the "mushroomed" expansion --- was the standard issue load for most police departments that carried 9mm's through the 1980s and 1990's, a proven, reliable round that expands well and is very accurate --- recomended highly by my State Trooper friends --- Expands to .620 every time in wet phone books and have had no core separations --- was used by many major police depts for decades and is still in limited issue todayon To balance --- all fired this stuff without a problem --- I'm satisfied w/ballistic gel testing --- inexpensive, clean shooting, reliable (in all my guns) --- own, Practice, and Carry this --- thousands of rounds each, no problems, no failures --- I think it's great --- this ammunition is fantastic, very accurate --- best Bang for the buck --- shoots and cycles flawlessly in my gun --- this is my carry round and it's been proven in law enforcement use for years and years --- it worked flawlessly --- a proven stopper as well as a reliable round --- 9BP ammo is what I use for personal protection; reliable, consistently accurate, provides dependable terminal performance --- using for a long g time, and it has always lived up to my expectations of both a target and personal defense round, burns clean, is accurate and penetrates well. Truly a nice round --- is the best standard pressure 9mm load, effective and accurate --- great Ammo --- damm good ammo --- damm good price and good ammo --- consistently effective for personal protection --- great ammo, clean powder, Will continue to buy them for protection and or duty rounds --- fired in 5 different 9mm pistols without a single hiccup --- most reliable in semi autos --- fantastic round in the stopping power department --- never had any problems with this round --- excellent load --- one of the finest non +P - +P+ rounds available --- has proved to be highly reliable and consistent --- 5 star ammo --- would highly recommend it for self defense use --- great personal defense load
Dale McMahan ( Sat, 02 Mar 2013 14:51:48 +0000 ) : I believe this to be a little high price for 115gr.. I purchase from you 124gr. Speer Lawman for alot less. I also purchase Speer LE 147gr. JHP Gold Dot for 29.00 a box for 50 rounds. That is FBI protol call ammo. It has the best gel pentration for the best protection in a 9mm round.
David Wayne Edwards ( Thu, 23 May 2013 02:19:28 +0000 ) : $45.50 for 1000 rounds! I'll take 10!
Angela Mason ( Wed, 05 Jun 2013 11:25:01 +0000 ) : WHERE DO YOU PURCHASE THEM?
Doug Shaw ( Thu, 25 Jul 2013 15:36:37 +0000 ) : lol, all bullets hurt man. lmao. Yeah like, the double aperture and the subliminal coating of the shitzel casing makes it even better. ...lmao
Richard J Diehl ( Sat, 23 Nov 2013 15:05:33 +0000 ) : i want to place a order help
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Sun, 01 Dec 2013 18:03:30 +0000 ) : Hey Richard, Please feel free to give us a call at 800.317.9506. Thank you!
John Charlotte Skrobowski ( Tue, 17 Dec 2013 17:20:43 +0000 ) : I wanted a cheaper defensive round to test with my S & P. Every round fired no problem, will be buying more.
Ralph Nettles Sr ( Thu, 19 Dec 2013 03:12:58 +0000 ) : I been pleased with the ammo I get from LuckyGunner. The price is good and the ammo preforms well. If you looking for ammo, give them a peak.
Tim Hickerson ( Fri, 20 Dec 2013 06:27:26 +0000 ) : I finally found affordable jacketed hollow points.the experience from lucky gunner was exceptional, they will be my go to people to buy ammunition from now on

This is not the newest ammo, it has been around a good while, but it is still excellent. Feeds well in all 9mm's I have used it in. (Ruger SR9 and LC9, Browning Hi-Power, IAI Baby Eagle, S&W M&P Shield) It is a high quality "carry round" that is about 60% the price of most other good HP rounds. I feel very confident in it. Over the years I have fired about 2,000 rounds of this with one failure to feed, and the gun needed cleaning pretty bad, so I don't blame the ammo. Federal has got this one down right! Check out what Mas Ayoob says about it too.
A couple words about LuckyGunner... The price was a little bit steeper than some other places, but they actually had it in stock. None of that backorder it and wait weeks or months nonsense. I ordered 1,000 rounds Tuesday afternoon and it was at my door Thursday evening. Can't beat that! When it arrived, the shipping box was damaged and one box of 50 rounds was missing, and one was damaged with six rounds missing. (FedEx issue, not LuckyGunner). One email to Lucky Gunner and two replacement boxes were at my house three days later, no questions asked. Now that is good service!! I will be back for more ammo from Lucky Gunner and more 9BP when my stocks run low. (Posted on 1/27/14)

Best Standard-Pressure Defensive 9mm Load Available Review by huckleberg
Performance
Value
Quality
Cycles perfectly in my Ruger SR9C. Generally recognized as the best standard pressure (non +P) defensive 9mm round made. You should have a few boxes of this around, and train with cheaper FMJ/Ball 115gr standard pressure ammo (I use Winchester White Box when I can find it). Also is a great option for older guns that should not use +P ammo. Bottom line: you cannot go wrong with this cartridge; if it's in stock, gobble up as much as you can afford. (Posted on 12/8/13)

"I really don't know why they still make this loading. As a match round it's a good choice but better choices exist. As a defensive round it's been obsolete for over twenty years. (Posted on 2/14/13)"

So if the so called "Better Choices" are unavaliable, then I would think this is a very good choice at this time. (Posted on 2/28/13)
accurate, but hampered by 1980s bullet design Review by me
Quality
Performance
Value
Clean, high quality round, can be very accurate in some guns. This is the same Federal 9BP that used to be recommended so highly as a defensive round in all the gun magazines--25+ years ago.

By 1980s standards it was about as well as you could do in 9mm. In the 21st Century there are vastly better choices. This bullet, reputedly manufactured for Federal by Nosler, is very prone to clogging and failure to expand when shot through any type of intermediate barrier, such as heavy clothing. It's also rather lightweight for caliber, and intermediate hard barriers like auto glass and sheet metal are very unkind to it.

I really don't know why they still make this loading. As a match round it's a good choice but better choices exist. As a defensive round it's been obsolete for over twenty years. (Posted on 2/14/13)

I just returned from the range to test my Federal classic hi-shok JHP ammo in 9 MM. I tested them in my Glock 19,my Taurus92 and my favorite gun, my Taurus PT 24/7 Pro. The ammo was accurate,clean, light recoil and most importantly had no jams, fail to feed or fail to fire. There were no stovepipes or ejections problems in any of the 9MM guns. I would highly recommend this ammo to amyone. Good price for a 9MM JHP. (Posted on 1/31/12)

Seems to work well with my glock 19. No issues after 150 rounds. Was planning to use it for home defense but watched a youtube video on it. Two shoots through denum, then gel backed by three water jugs. This ammo went through jeans, gel and two jugs. There was no fragmentation. Questionable. should have stopped in the gel fragmented. Will use at range and look for HST type for home defense. (Posted on 12/27/11)

I have shot about 5 boxes of this in my SW5906 with NO issues. Fairly clean burning ammo, and the ballistics match up fairly well with typical cheap 9mm ammo in 115FMJ. So you can have quality hollow-point defense ammo that shoots the same as your practice rounds.

I buy Federal's 9BP as my #1 choice. (Posted on 9/26/11)

Went through a box, seems like a better value than $1 a round +P ammo. +P will probably have better stopping power, but since the Federal Classic has the same characteristics of 9mm target ammo, I think I'll put more rounds on target with this ammo, than I would with +P. In the end, no one's going to like being on the receiving end of this. (Posted on 11/27/10)
