This round is loaded with a lightweight 185 grain bullet. Its 1,015 fps muzzle velocity is still subsonic, but it also gives the bullet enough momentum to ensure it transfers sufficient kinetic energy for self-defense beyond 100 yards. The brass jacketed hollow point has a tougher than average exterior. This helps the bullet to remain more intact in the event that it first has to pierce a barrier before reaching the threat. When the BJHP meets soft tissue, its nose cavity’s spiral cut serrations kick into action to promote wide and uniform terminal expansion – even at relatively low velocities.
These premium personal protection loads sport nickel-plated brass cases. Nickel reduces metal-on-metal friction to make feeding and extraction go more smoothly, so a jam is less likely to compromise your ability to defend yourself. Nickel also makes this ammo a little easier to see in poor lighting, and it even guards against corrosion.
