Great Ammo, but only for certain weapons
Federal Hydra Shok is a mainstay of police forces around the country, and in general, one of the best all-around self defense rounds made.
HOWEVER...no matter how good the design and implementation of the round, it does no good if it will not feed into the chamber.
In a lightly used, but perfectly functioning Walther PPKS 380ACP, these rounds consistently failed to feed.
Other JHP's fed 100% of the time with no malfunctions. Tested 4 other major branded JHP's and all did a fantstic job, but something about the Hydra Shok that just does not agree with this particular weapon.
I now have a box of 50 .380 Hydra Shok in 380 ACP which will go unused due to "whatever the problem may be".
Given that all other JHP and FMJ rounds feed in this weapon without fail, it has to be this particular ammunition or even this batch of Hydra Shoks...but I cannot load and carry with confidence in this round due to the high FTF rate.
Some of the best!
I use this in my Kel Tek .380 auto. It feeds better than some FMJ
It kicks, so if you want less muzzle flip, I suggest the managed recoil version.
It's pricey, but so is most 380. I highly recommend this ammo for self defence, or exploding targets.
It shoot reliably and straight. Very few failures of any kind.
