In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Federal 124 gr Hydra Shok fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Smith & Wesson M&P9C pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

Decent old technology ammo
Review by Bigschwerm
I’ve never had a bad round after firing more than 650 rnds. of this over the years. My issue is with over penetration in some scenarios and lack of consistent expansion. Hst is a newer better round round IMO, but hydra-shok still has its place within the market.

Great ammo for self defense
Review by vadimdr
This is a great ammo for self defence. Based on multiple reviews, the walls are not penetrated with this round.
Pretty expensive for range training, so use in the range only to verify it works fine with your handgun ...

I haven't had a chance to shoot any of the rounds yet, but I have no doubt about the quality of federal premium ammo from past experience. Lucky Gunner is a great place to buy ammo. Great prices, always in stock and fast delivery. What more is there?
