The round is equipped with a jacketed hollow point (JHP) projectile that weighs in at 185 grains; while this is relatively light for the caliber, these loads are configured for subsonic muzzle velocity for a low report when used with a suppressor. The JHP features a smooth ogive with deep skivings which act as a pre-programmed track for the bullet's hollow cavity. This allows the bullet to experience wide expansion during entry into a target, creating a large wound cavity while driving threat-crippling momentum into deeper vital zones.
