This round’s 150 grain bullet gives you the accuracy of a hyper-concentric jacket and form-fitted lead core. The well-balanced bullet keeps its tip always pointed toward its target. And this is bad news for the target, because the Sporting Handgun bullet’s hollow point cavity is accompanied by multiple skives to promote fast and uniform terminal expansion in soft tissue. The lightweight JHP bullet retains over 400 ft lbs of energy until it reaches 55 yards, so it would still pack a serious punch even if it couldn’t expand so effectively.
Underwood equips their self-defense loads with two key performance-enhancing feature. Nickel-plated cases complement the smooth-feeding Sporting bullet by creating very little friction that could trip up a semi-auto’s ability to cycle freely. Nickel is also corrosion resistant, and it even makes the ammo easier to see during nighttime.
This round’s flash-suppressed propellant also makes it easier to see in the dark, as it produces insufficient light to blind you once your eyes have adjusted to low light. This ammo is suppressor safe!
