The obsolete Federal Hydra Shok
Still seems to work very well. This big bodied 8 pointer went crashing down ( collapsed immediately ) when hit at an estimated 15 yard quartering away shot.Dont know about anyone else, but I'm not seeing any evidence on living matter that the old stuff is out dated as far as effective performance.
Pistol was a G22 ( my issue carry) with a 155 weight Hydra Shok.
I have now tested every brand of defensive ammo in every common defensive caliber on live game, with the exception of exotic ammo and newly marketed in the last 5 or so years.

Good job, Glockman. The quartering shot is the most difficult in my estimation. Another verification of the importance of bullet placement.
Big bodied, eh? I guess we are spoiled here in Iowa. ;)
