    I never found that bullet as a separate item ... but the Speer JHP is available and a good bullet for reloading - if that is you want reloaded rounds for CC.

    Contraversial subject using reloads but on balance I think for CC factory is better bet - just in case!.

    The Hydrashock tho is unique in having the ''post'' in the center .......... so not like the GD bullet at all ... in fact the only bullet I know of that has the post.

    I suspect this is only available in loaded factory ammo.

    Federal will not release the Hydrashok bullet as a component. The Speer Gold Dot is available as a component bullet and is a better bullet in my experience.
