Yeah, like it never worked before? I just picked up a box to try in my 6906. It was the SD rounds Wm had on the shelf, so that's what I got. If I put anything where it needs to go, I expect it will do the job.

I am confused?
As I said in another post, I remember a gun mag article that tested this round when it first came out. The point was that the post in the center would prevent it from clogging up. Maybe I should get rid of what I have and move on to the newer ammo out there.I have it in my .380 and my 9mm.

Hydro-Shok is old and out dated. Please send it to me for recycling. No charge.
I carry it in my guns. If it plugs no matter it still makes a .45 hole. I read an article about over penetration. The article stated the bullet did not have enough energy when it exited to present a danger. I wish I knew where I saw that.

Shoot them in the central nervous system or they heart and you will be fine.

Love the Hydra Shocks the .45 acp's anyway! Always very accurate in my guns.

And that, is the most intelligent answer to date. Hard to do, but it works all the time.

Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo
"There are a lot of people who pick a load without adequately researching the ammo they trust their life on. The Federal Hydra-Shock is one such example. It was the whiz-bang bullet of its time, but has since been eclipsed by many other bullet designs. The principal weakness of that round are its lack of expansion after passing through clothing."

In .357 use the Hydra Shoks, and in the 9mm the HST's. However, at the price of FMJ"s, how could you go wrong ?
