Happy Customer by VF77 on 8/2/2016
I picked up a case a while back. I run this stuff though my Sub2k and it's very soft shooting and accurate. Good quality...

Through internet research I realized this code '9MS' Federal 147 gr. 9mm Ammo was what you might call the Gen 1 FBI load.
In my tests in water it performed only slightly less than top of the line modern 147 h.p.
And for approx less than 1/2 price, I consider it a 'poor man's' practice/defense ammo.
BTW, my G'son ate out the center of a target(rapid-fire) with them. They are just fine.
Service thru Luckygunner was excellent .
This 147 gr. Hi shock ammo has shot flawlessly in my finicky Kimber custom 2 1911. So far I have put 350 rounds thru it, zero issues. This is reasonably priced ammo so it’s great for the range, and being hollow point should serve well for home defense. Glad I gave this a try. Would recommend! Thanks Lucky Gunner you’re always great.
I found my ammo!
I tried this ammo in my ATI MilSport 9mm canned rifle. I had tried about 5 different brands, FMJ and HP, and was getting 2-3 inch groups at 50 yards. I tried this Federal ammo, and immediately got consistent sub-MOA 5-round groups. Considering a lot of 9mm ammo comes in 20-rnd boxes, you're paying about the same price for twice the ammo, and with better accuracy. Yes, I am buying more.
Great ammo and awesome service
I ordered 300 rounds late Wednesday night and received a very well packaged box before noon on Friday. I took 100 rounds to the range that same day and after firing about 150 rounds of 115 gr I switched to the 147 gr JHP. I was more accurate and had tighter groups using this in my Shield than any other ammo I have used previously. Combining the ammo with the excellent turn around time and great price I couldn't be happier.
I picked up a case a while back. I run this stuff though my Sub2k and it's very soft shooting and accurate. Good quality ammo. It's not a very 'hot' round at 1000 FPS, but it's perfect for a PCC. It's clocking just shy of1200 FPS out of a 16" barrel and is super controllable, extremely reliable with an average-to-good 147g HP pill. For the price, it's unbeatable, especially for a carbine. For pistols and such, I prefer the new HST round - but that aint cheap. Anyway, I'm a happy customer and I'm a big Lucky Gunner fan.
Good place/Good ammo
Fired about 250 rounds last weekend at the range. Tried out my new M11A1. Everything went smoothly. Nothing but, bang, bang, bang.
I've ordered lots of ammo from Lucky Gunner. Always great service and always great products.
Great First Online Ammo Experience
I had been looking to take advantage of online pricing and convenience, and finally could since moving. I had seen Lucky Gunner's deals before and could not pass up such a good price on 147gr JHP, which I plan to use as my primary defense load. Lucky Gunner's process helped me seamlessly navigate my first online purchase and delivery was extremely speedy. I will definitely be back.
Great Service, Very Accurate and Consistant Round!
I went to the range with my friend and shooting mentor. Since I had just received my case of 1,000 rounds, I handed him a box and said try these! He said it was a waste to use such an expensive round at the range. Well, actually not much more than store bought target rounds, but since they are being considered for personal defense, I wanted some feedback. We both shot a magazine or two through a CZ-75 (4.88"), a Browning Hi-Power, and an M&P Shield subcompact. Even the M&P shield was accurate, but the CZ and the Hi-Power were deadly at 30'. I can hear you saying 30', big deal! Well it is to me, because the bullets not only hit the target, but were nicely grouped. We shot several other pistols of different calibers, but the two nice 9mm's with the Federal 9mm 147grain JHP's were very reliable. My main reason for obtaining this bullet was for the M&P Shield. It worked very well with it. No failures of any kind in any of the pistols! I am satisfied!
Shopping at LG
I can't really comment on the performance of this ammo; I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. However, I will say that buying ammo from Lucky Gunner is a pleasure. The prices are great and they always ship fast to my favorite dealer. As soon as I send a few rounds downrange, I'll return with a review. Thanks Lucky Gunner and to all a good night!
Great ammo, great price.
I know a lot of people want a 45 ACP or nothing. Some that shoot 9mm, want the fastest defense round they can get. I carry a 9mm every day. I've shot 40 S&W and 45ACP. Both are fine rounds, but with today's advancement in bullet technology, the 9mm has come leaps and bounds from where they were 20 years ago. Even the FBI recently announced they were returning to the 9mm, because of the advancement of bullet technology. There is ever talk of the U.S. military revoking the Hague Convention to allow our fighting men to have a better round in their service pistols. There may even be a new 9mm pistol in the works for the U.S. Army.
I chose this specific round because of its combination of weight and speed. I want as much penetration as possible. This round has a solid history behind it. Its price per round is also quite attractive, plus the fact that their boxes hold 50 rounds. I have also found that this round has shot consistently in both grouping and accuracy. That is not in just one pistol or one brand. It shoots well in every brand I tested it in, S&W M&P in both FS and C, S&W Shield, Sig P320, SigPro, Ruger LC9. I'll stick with this round.
I bought 5 or 6 of boxes of this, because I want some good 147gr JHP. I ran some through every one of my 9mm pistols to see if they feed OK. Every one ate them without a problem, including my little Ruger LC9. I prefer a heavier bullet over a lighter one. These will be my primary defense load in all of my 9mm's.
Great service and fine ammo
LG is always quick to get your order out and to you. I haven't even shot this ammo yet, but I've never had a problem with Federal. These are for practice and for carry behind my premium hollow points.
Great Ammo Excellent Company Will purchase from them again & recommend to friends.
Ammo performed flawlessly through my Kimber Solo CDP. Used it during and after the break in period without a hitch. For all you people out there having issues with your Solo try this ammo and be sure to buy from LuckyGunner. There great to deal with and you will receive your order in short time.
My personal choice
These are a winner for me. They fed through my Steyr M9-A1 and my SigPro 2022 without a hitch, though I didn't expect any feeding problems with either of these pistols. These are my house guns and I need a round that is accurate enough to go where I point them, and give me some confidence they'll do what I expect of them.
Great - but it seems to be all gone
I bought this as practice ammo, as the price was as low as any 147 gr. I could find. It fed and fired normally and the hollow points made nice holes in paper targets. I wish I had bought more.
Well worth the money
I bought this to run thru my new Kimber Solo as recommended by the manufacture. I ran 25 thru field striped the gun, oiled and reassembled. Then ran another 50 thru it. I had no problems. Also I can not say enough about lucky gunner. I looked around at all of my local retailers and their prices could not come close to the ones on here. I also ordered a different purchase from a different web site, that is known for it's customer service and starts with the letters amaz.... :), the same night I ordered this ammo. I received my package from lucky gunner 3 days earlier then the other. In short I will be ordering more soon.
great ballistic systems
Hydra-Shok is one of the all time great ballistic systems. It is a relatively fast opening hollow point that will restrict pass through shots. This is important in a urban defense setting. Unlike full metal jackets and slower opening hollow points this round will release more of it's energy in the targeted media.
I use the Hydra-Shok in my LEO duty weapon (Sig Sauer P220 & M9) and I haven't had any misfires, short rounds or anything but a reliable continuous level of performance.

Good price. Great results
This is quality ammo from a respected dependable company. Used in my Sig 229, and Kimber Solo. Experienced no feed problems or failure to fire. Used for practice, not concealed carry. Good price for 147 grain JHP from a reputable manufacturer.
The ammo is ya know...ammo.But the customer service and quickness and quality of shipping is definetly top notch.My ammo spot for life.Finally someone who actually does their job and does it well,Hard to find now a days..Keep Up The Good Work
great HP for plinking
Excellent hollow point @147 for taking out to the range. I'd be a bit hinky about relying upon for personal defense( just due to standard brass case, prefer nickle-plated for better feed reliability), but overall a vary good HP.
around here the ammo shelves are empty, and you could spend a lot on gasoline just looking for a shop that hasn't been dried up since the government has created this phony shortage. I was really impressed with the speed my order was handled, and have told friends of your prices and speed of handling. keep up the good work. dick cercone in rensselaer Indiana,
Bargain 147gr JHP (Standard)
For JHP home defense...I use these in my Beretta PX4 Storm (Full). I've started leaning towards the 147gr Federal Hi-Shok, Hydra-Shok, Speer Gold Dot and Remington Golden Saber, all standard pressure. Even theses older Hi-Shoks are economical, have stoping power, and enough penetration in most situations.
The newer Hydra-Shok (147gr) and HST (124gr), although more sophisticated, than the older Hi-Shok (147gr), are more expensive. I'd use the Speer (GD) and Rem (GS) 147g standard pressure also.
Also, trying to find +P 124gr or +P 147gr is too expensive in 500-1000 bulk. Plus, I like the lower recoil on the standard 147gr. Improves my muscle memory in normal and under stress situations.
If you want a little history on this round see below...

"This is NOT a Hydra-Shok or the original Winchester 147 gr OSM loading. It is the Federal 9MS standard JHP loading that was selected by Crane in October 1991 for the XM11 (Sig P228) NCIS contract. San Diego PD also used it. For the late 1980's/early 1990's, it was a good loading, however there are far better options available today--it does make a very accurate practice load..."
bought two boxes for my p938 for personal carry. range trips i put one magazine through just to keep the feel for the little sig. (my work horse plinker is a glock 19) these are awesome. the sig is picky but runs these through with no problems! so far i am very pleased with Lucky Gunner!! order monday get 'em on wednesday every time. 50 rounds for the same price as 20 rounds of other HP ammo is a great bargain.
Great Product From Great Seller!
Great ammo! Can say anything bad about it. bought several rounds of various Federal ammo different grains to shoot out of my PX4 9mm . Excellent product! Prices are a little high right now but try getting it elsewhere. good luck! Buy as many as you can.
