    I've never tried them myself. You can find numerous gel tests on youtube of the Federal Guard Dog EFMJ's in various calibers. They're the flavor of the month novelty at the moment from what I've seen.

    Unless you live somewhere where hollow points are restricted, I wouldn't bother with them. That's just my opinion though.

    If you can use something different I would. 105g bullet is very light for caliber. If you really want to go that route I would look for the Federal EFMJ tactical line which has heavier bullets.

    The guard dogs are underpowered, but that was the intent of that load. I'm still pretty intrigued about the Federal 124 gr EFMJ, I was hoping someone here has been able to try these out in the field. I like to have an over abundance of different types of ammo at my disposal. Just one more tool in the toolbox...

    If I had to travel to a State that recognized my CHL but outlawed HP ammo then I would be carrying Federal Premium Tactical and not "Guard Dog" Here in the Real World I carry either Gold Dot,HST,or Ranger T series

    Totally agree. There are better traditional HP choices.

    Honestly, if I lived somewhere where hollow points are restricted, I'd just trade my 9mm pistols for 45acp and never look back.
