Nothing wrong with the old Hydra-Shoks. They have been surpassed by recent bullet designs, but they are still effective.

So what's wrong with the ammo?

The ammo is fine for SD.

Yeah, I'm sure these are fine. Like I said, it was a freebie. \

I guess I have been use to +P's, for the longest. And, the Hydra-Shok is real old in design. However, it does have a good history.

With the price of ammunition these days, I shouldn't be picky.

I gave this guy some Royal Purple motor oil a while back. 5-30 works for his truck. My Crown Vic wants 5-20 these days, so I just gave him the oil.

He did some work at a gun store, and took payment via ammunition. He gave me a box (50) of the Hydra-Shoks in return.

Interestingly enough, he said that the gun store, won't even sell ammunition these days, without a purchase of a pistol, rifle, or shotgun.

If you have better self-defense ammo then why not put it away for an emergency? I'd bet my life on Hydra-Shock before I'd bet it on FMJ.

Yeah, many of us have gotten rather used to using +P & +P+ loads over the years, huh? We were using standard pressure 147gr loads for many years (including the Hydra-Shock for a bit) before we eventually changed over to 127gr +P+ and then one of the common 124gr +P loads.

I'd not lose sleep over carrying it. It might not consistently expand as robustly as some other new bullet designs, under some conditions, but what's new, right? If a nose cavity plugs with heavy cloth, it can become a bit dicey.

The price was right, at any rate.

The retail/commercial price of ammo nowadays can be pretty incredible. Of course, even the contract/bid pricing LE/Gov can sometimes get has risen quite a bit, too.
