Federal Premium Personal Defense, .45 ACP, HS JHP, 165 Grain, 20 Rounds is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 1911 45 from Amo is fine but have concernsI tried out the 165 gr Hydro Shock, and although, it did great when I tried it out at the range with my 1911 45. The remaining ammo I kept for defense caused some concerns. I noticed that the hollow point bullet would press deeper into the casing after I chamber a round. It happened to two rounds, and now i am being careful each time I chamber another round before open / conceal carry. Has anyone ever had this problem before???

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne from quality ammo even in sig 1911I had to try this as I read a review although 4 years old ; from somebody with a sig 1911 that had problems with it in his 1911. So I tried 10 boxes of Federal that were a few years old and I wanted to replenish it with fresh rounds so for the heck of it. Yeah it is expensive to blow away over 200 bucks on ammo but wanted to make sure I would not end up with a problem. Anyway, shot from both my sig 1911 type firearms ; my C3 loved it!! (reason I had bought it in first place was for the C3 with the 4 inch barrel ) as well as my Tac Ops 5 inch barrel. The recoil is excellent for smaller C3 but the 5 inch of course recoil was even lighter. Both of them fired all 100 rounds each. Not one Fail to feed or fail to fire. No jams or hang-ups at all. Also, not ONE DUD in all. As I said these were about two years old if not longer. 40 of them were all loose too in storage can. Bottom line. Great ammo. I hope the guy with that sig 1911 that had problems heeded the advise of another reviewer and taken his weapon to gunsmith. Sig Sauer are absolutely quality weapons also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patman from A Definate Self-Defense RoundI have been shooting this round since it came out. I shoot it with a Colt Combat Commander and have never had a failure to fire nor a failure to feed/eject. I will now use this round as a follow-up in my Ruger Redhawk .45 Colt/.45 ACP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KSDeputy from My Carry AmmoI carry 165 gr. Hydra Shok in my CS 45. I feel quite comfortable that it will do the intended job of stopping an aggressor. I have always preferred Federal ammunition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linnin from Perfect for my 3" S&W model 625 revolverI have shot Federal Hydra-Shok ammo in many different calibers in both revolvers and semi-auto pistols for at least 25 years and never a failure to fire. What I like best about this round is that it is low recoil and low muzzle flash. It is perfect for close encounters of the worst kind in close range personal defense. It is my first choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grouch from Good price.Excellent ammo. I use it with the Hornady Critical Defense for carry purposes. It is an oldie but goodie. Never had a round fail.
