Federal Premium Personal Defense Low Recoil, .38 Special, Hydra-Shok JHP, 110 Grain, 20 Rounds is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CW3RDL from Underpowered and UnderperformingThis round does not live up to its advertised velocity. It chronographed at 130 feet per second less than the advertised 980 f.p.s. from my 2" Colt Agent and exhibited no expansion when fired through two layers of t-shirt into plastic milk jugs filled with water. When fired from a 4" Colt Police Positive Special, the velocity averaged 923 f.p.s. (57 f.p.s. below advertised) and expanded to 42 caliber. While it offered no extraction problems and did fire each time, it cannot be relied on for self-defense. 38 Special Wadcutters offer more energy and as much expansion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sammy baby from Excellent AmmoPurchased again after I used previous for testing at range. Shot from a sitting/standing and this ammo goes where it is aimed at within 20 yards. Great lower recoil for my snub .38 Rossi revolver. Its not +p rated so this ammo still has velocity/accuracy and power for primary carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rico567 from Same as 110 gr. +P+?I have an old Red & White box of 50 Federal .38 Special 110 gr. +P+, labeled "For Law Enforcement Use Only," can't even remember where I got it. Is this basically the same as this ammo?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sammy baby from Outstanding!This ammo is a perfect target round. The lower recoil is noticeable compared to standard to +P rounds . Out of my Rossi .38 (2 inch) the muzzle flip is considerably lower allowing me to get excellent 1-5 inch groups at 25 -30 feet. And this can be a defense carry round also. Will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 38 Snub Nose from This particular defensive round is just what I was looking for in 38 Special by Federal. We intersperse them with target ammo just to keep them familiar with muscle memory. Just an excellent defensive carry for my wife and myself.
