This is the target shooter’s standard 115 grain FMJ load. That lightweight a bullet propels to supersonic muzzle velocity out of a handgun’s barrel, so it’s going to make a sharp crack before it flies off in a straight trajectory. This bullet’s round nose profile will support reliable feeding from a semi-auto’s magazine.
