    That is a regular standard weight JHP should be about 950 fps out of a 4'' barrel.
    According to the book Stopping Power that bullet is credited with 84% OSS (average recovered diameter .65) based on 100 shootings.
    In the book Street Stoppers, the Federal 180 JHP bullet penetrated 17" gel and expanded to .64

    The minimum is not what I want to defend my life with.

    Hi shock has pretty much identical ballistics to the newer Hydro shok (still an older design):
    Federal Premium Ammunition - Handgun

    The jacket/core design is different.

    The latest&greatest from Federal is the HST, which again, is an improvement on terminal performance of the projectile.

    Here is a quick look at all 3 (about 45 seconds in)

    I have a little over 900 rounds of this in 155gr 40. I won it in a contest, but my gun doesn't particularly like the stuff. It'll shoot fine with it if I only load ten rounds instead of 14, but to me, that's no fun.
