Federal Personal Defense Loads?
Has anyone seen any thorough ballistic testing done on the Federal Personal Defense Low Recoil .45ACP 165gr. Hydra-Shok?
I'm considering carrying this in my new SA Micro. My thinking is that the lighter bullet would improve muzzle velocity in the 3-inch barrel. The box says 1060fps at the muzzle, but I'm sure they were using a 5-inch test barrel, so I'm thinking we're probably looking in the 850-900 fps range. I don't have a chrony, so that's a WAG.
I bought a couple of boxes to see how they do on the range, but I'm curious how the terminal ballistics perform.
