The 9mm cartridge has been popular for more than a century, and for good reason. 9mm rounds produce manageable recoil combined with capable stopping power, are more cost effective, and guns chambered in the round tend to house magazines with larger capacities. In fact, the round is so popular it’s been the U.S. Army’s standard issue caliber for some time now in the form of the Beretta M9. If you own a pistol chambered in 9mm odds are you use it for self-defense, which means you need some good defense rounds from a respected manufacturer.
These particular 9mm rounds are made by Federal, a company with almost one hundred years’ worth of experience and a stellar reputation in the industry. Federal was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, who refounded what had been a six-year-old failing company with the belief he could create a successful manufacturer. His plan included marketing the company’s products in gas stations, barber shops, and grocery stores, and before long Federal was flourishing. Over the years Federal has become one of the most well-known and respected ammunition manufacturers in the U.S.; if you’ve never tried their ammunition, it’s past time you did.
At 147 grain these are considered fairly heavy 9mm rounds. Being a bit heavier gives them the ability to hit harder, but they’re still light enough to travel down-range at high speeds. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds, and expand on impact, penetrating deep for a devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 326 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for personal protection purposes. There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. All Federal ammunition is manufactured at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota.
