Federal Premium Hydra-Shok, .380 ACP, HSJHP, 90 Grain, 20 Rounds is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MoeStevens from Defective roundNormally I practice with my reloads, but about once a year I shoot with factory ammo to keep my "carry" ammo fresh. Yesterday while practicing with my factory ammo, I had a "primer only" round. Examination of the fired casing showed only light residue. Of course the slide did not cycle on my S&W Bodyguard 380, but there was enough energy for the bullet to clear that short barrel.From now on I will weigh every round I carry to ensure this does not happen in a critical situation. Otherwise, I have carried this ammunition for years without any problems.I weighed all my remaining Hydra-Shok rounds and found them within .1 gram, and intend to routinely do the same with all carry ammo in the future. A rating of one star after thousands of rounds fired my seem severe, but in a life-or-death situation, it only takes one. Lot number was 409P1424143. I would still recommend Hydra-Shoks a friend, but with a caution to weigh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tlbuff26 from Will not work in Ruger LCP!Federal makes awesome ammo, but this will not feed into Ruger LCP. Either add disclaimer on box or more product testing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fudd from Does not feed in Ruger LCP 380This ammo does not feed when loading into my Ruger LCP 380. Very annoying. Can't return ammo to the store I got it from. Very disappointing. Will not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FatherJoe from HYDRA-SHOK IS FLAWLESS IN ONE G42On June 5, 2017 I purchased and test-fired my new G42 directly out of the factory box. I made no adjustments to it. I fired 200 rounds of HYDRA-SHOK low recoil 90 grain ammunition. The gun fired flawlessly. The bullets grouped in tight patterns. Because this process was to test the reliability of the G42 and FEDERAL ammunition in It, I did not get more technical. I trust this G42 and HYDRA-SHOK combination with my life and my loved ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeB from wonderful, with minor hiccupsI own a Taurus pt38. These rounds cycle wonderfully. I ran through 2 full clips (13rds, 6 in each clip with one in the chamber) without any jams. However, when I load the first round I have a little trouble; when I pull the slide back it'll stick but only takes a little tap. The pt38 has a slide lock which is uncommon in 380s so if you load with the slide back it'll load no problem, so no need to complain.
