This is your go-to 9mm cartridge for serious training and casual backyard shooting. Its 115 grain bullet is the lightest you’re apt to find on a factory load, and its weight lets it exit the barrel at supersonic velocity! This is an ideal selection for training if your self-defense ammo has 115 grain bullets as well.
This round’s bullet is a full metal jacket. The FMJ is a basic design, essentially a lead core with a copper coating around it. The hard outer layer helps your semi-automatic firearm feed without jamming, and furthermore helps to prevent lead residue from accumulating inside of its barrel. That promotes good accuracy, as does this bullet’s evenly distributed lead core and concentric jacket. The FMJ won’t expand inside its target like a hollow point would, but its economical design makes it the favorite at the range.
Federal doesn’t cut corners when it comes to their standard range loads. This cartridge has a brand new brass shell casing, strong enough to be reloaded several times without losing its ability to feed and extract correctly. Federal’s modern primer won’t leave residues inside of your firearm that will rust it, and their propellant is formulated and weighed to deliver consistent shot-after-shot ballistic performance.
