Self-defense is serious business just as choosing to carry a firearm for self-defense is a major responsibility. Among the choices you need to make when carrying a gun for protection are choosing a method of carry and the holster to make it happen, but that’s just the start. One of the most important details aside from considering the psychological aspects and picking a gun is the choice of ammunition. Target rounds cannot be used for self-defense because they simply create a through-and-through and over-penetrate. A good defense round expands on impact and creates a crippling wound cavity.
These particular defense rounds are manufactured by the legendary Hornady company for your 9x19mm Parabellum/Luger. These rounds weigh in at 147 grain which makes them relatively heavy for the cartridge size. Being heavier allows them to strike targets with greater force which is just what you want from a defense round. These are Hornady’s XTP, eXtreme Terminal Performance, rounds and feature a JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, bullet for rapid energy transfer and expansion on impact. Their jackets control expansion, slowing it to allow for greater penetration and a larger wound cavity. Hornady manufactures this ammunition specifically for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 250 defense rounds. With 250 rounds you can get some dedicated training time in which is of vital importance for self-defense. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so the only way to ensure accuracy is by training with your chosen defense ammunition. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 975 feet per second and muzzle energy of 310 foot-pounds.
