This cartridge is loaded with a 180 grain projectile, set to a muzzle velocity of 1,015 fps so it can still inflict more than 300 ft lbs of kinetic energy beyond the 100-yard mark. In other words, this round surpasses the minimum recommended energy for personal protection at all practical ranges.
The JHP does more than hit hard on impact, of course. Remington’s evenly layered jacket and dense lead core promote highly reliable terminal expansion as the hollow point nose cavity fills up with hydraulic pressure. Under ideal conditions this JHP may double in diameter to produce a 0.80” wide wound cavity.
Remington’s reloadable brass cases have strong, straight walls and concentric rims to ensure smooth feeding and extraction. Low-fouling explosive components keep a handgun reliable and accurate in between cleanings!
