Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistant Accuracy The P9HS1 is consistantly one of the most accurate rounds in my Sig, HK or S&W handguns. The only complaint I have is that Federal needs to produce more of this round because it is getting hard to find and when it is available the price is ridiculous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydra Shock works We lived in Hawaii and had feral hogs roaming the property. Got tired of and my 226, went hog hunting. One shot, from about 8-10 feet, between the ribs, tore through the intercostal muscles, blew up the heart then through the other side and the spent round trapped in the hair on the hide. Hog ran 10 feet and dropped and was butchered later that evening. Great round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stopping Power A lot of people will tell you these were a good bullet in their time and there is better to offer but I look at it this way this design has been around for years and has proved to be very reliable by many L.E.A. I have used the hydro shok as my carry ammo for a long time and fired several rounds w/o any problems. I would recommend this to anyone who conceal carries or home defense. As with all ammunition I would test them in your firearm to make sure there are no feed issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Locating It is nice to have a new 9mm ammo! My problem with this product finding it in stock. If it is in stock, the price is high enough change to another defense item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent for self defense Its been a few years since I have shot these, but last time I tested these in soaked phone books the depth and size of the holes are easy to follow. I was glad to have these in my 92fs when 2 guys thought they would break in. Lucky for them they decided to leave when my 3 german shephards met them at the window and door. great for self defense, not sure that I would use anything else.
