The Lernaean Hydra was a many-headed snake beast killed by Hercules. For every head Hercules chopped off, two would grow in its place. Fortunately, Hercules’ nephew Iolaus was present to help cauterize each wound shut before more snake heads could sprout from it.

Ths 45 ACP ammo by Federal Premium features something even better than a mythological creature: the very real stopping power of the Hydra-Shok jacketed hollow point bullet. Look inside its nose cavity to see its distinguishing feature: a unique center post, which alongside the Hydra-Shok’s notched copper jacket helps to secure reliable, controlled expansion under a wide range of circumstances.

This round is loaded to a decidedly peppier 900 fps muzzle velocity (5” test barrel). Without going overpressure, the round transfers nearly 397 ft lbs of kinetic energy to its target at 25 yards – about 33% more than the minimum energy recommended for defense. So long as your draw is quick and aim is true, the threat shouldn’t pose a great challenge to you.

This ammo is loaded with nickel-plated brass cases. They are a welcome feature for any self-defense cartridge, as they smooth out cycling in a semi-auto and also withstand long-term storage without becoming corroded. Nickel also makes each round easier to spy in a handgun’s dark chamber.
