- The Federal Personal Defense line of ammunition is designed for use in defensive situations. This load features a 230 grain jacketed hollow point, which is designed to expand upon impact. The reason for expansion is to cause an increase in the diameter of the wound channel, causing greater damage to your target. In addition to the larger wound tract, expansion decreases the depth of penetration, decreasing the chance that you bullet will pass through your target and continue to travel down range at a unintended target.
- Out of the test barrel, Federal rates this ammunition at a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second. Combined with a 230-grain projectile, this makes for 369 foot-pounds of energy.
