Hydra-Shok DEEP Does It All

Federal Hydra-Shok has been instrumental in stopping bad guys since 1989. The notched jacketed, non-bonded lead core with unique center post, hollowpoint design was a huge step from the then-traditional cup-and-core ammunition. Hydra-Shok provided better penetration and consistent threat-stopping expansion than other bullets of the time.

The engineers at Federal developed a new core design, giving Federal Hydra-Shok DEEP up to 50 percent deeper penetration than original Hydra-Shok and similar bullets. A more robust center post was designed to provide better integrity and performance through barriers.

Recent testing displayed 15″ of penetration in bare ballistic gelatin — optimal according to FBI standards.
