Federal launches new Hydra-Shok components, delivering a popular self-defense load to handloaders.

Originally debuted in 1989, Hydra-Shok occupied the personal protection space, presenting an ammo option geared towards protecting home and family. The hollow point design paired with center post offered shooters a consistent, reliable performance and expansion.

Federal has since expanded its options to bring the design to handloaders. Available in a variety of weights and diameters, the components ship in 50-round or 100-round count boxes with prices ranging from $16 to $18 for 50 round boxes and $30 for 100 rounds. Current offerings include 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .357 Mag. and .38 SPL.

“Federal Premium Hydra-Shok, the bullet design that’s defined self-defense for a generation, is now available as a component for handloaders,” Federal said in a news release. Federal says shipments of the components are currently headed towards ammo dealers.
