This is a 200 grain load, with an 890 fps muzzle velocity that gives the bullet sufficient kinetic energy for personal protection without producing unreasonable recoil in return. The bullet is a jacketed hollow point. It’s steel-free and can’t attract a magnet, so you can use it for training at any range. Its hard copper-alloy jacket keeps the bullet mostly intact as it penetrates soft tissue. And because the edge of the nose cavity is lined with shallow notches, the jacket splits apart quickly and evenly to give way to terminal expansion. Don’t pick a bullet that can’t expand for self-defense – you want to put a wider wound channel into the threat, as well as minimize the risk of over-penetration.
Fiocchi is not a fly-by-night operation. They’ve been in business for well over a hundred years, and they load high grade brass cases, dependable Boxer primers and evenly weighed charges of clean-burning powder. This ammo is noncorrosive and reloadable.
