This cartridge has a lightweight 115 grain bullet, so you probably notice relatively little recoil while firing it. The bullet is made of a simple lead core that is enveloped in a gilding metal jacket, which improves both its ability to feed reliably in a semi-auto as well as prevent lead fouling in its barrel. The FMJ’s inability to deliver terminal expansion makes it a better choice for the range than for self-defense, but you could trust these rounds for backup.
Together this round’s light bullet and potent propellant charge create a supersonic 1,190 fps muzzle velocity out of a handgun. That conveys a flatter, easier to aim trajectory. Browning’s non-corrosive primer won’t threaten your firearm with rust, and their uniform brass case should continue cycling smoothly even after you’ve reloaded it.
