ANOKA, Minnesota - April 30, 2019 - The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Shooting Illustrated magazine recently honored Federal Premium Hydra-Shok Deep with its Golden Bullseye Award for 2019 Ammunition Product of the Year. Federal Ammunition representatives accepted the award on April 26, during the 148th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana.

From the No. 1 brand in handgun ammunition, Hydra-Shok Deep bullets feature a more robust center post and a core design that penetrates to critical depths through common self-defense barriers, without over-penetrating. In fact, its updated bullet design penetrates 15 inches in bare ballistics gel and through heavy clothing—the optimal depth according to FBI standards. This results in a significant improvement in FBI protocol score.

“We are proud Hydra-Shok Deep was chosen for the prestigious award,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “To even be considered for a Golden Bullseye, the product must meet a variety of demanding criteria on design, function, value and reliability. We are grateful they found the winner with Hydra-Shok Deep.”

Shooting Illustrated is the NRA's newest official journal, with a focus on concealed carry, self-defense and tactical shooting. For its Golden Bullseye Award program, the magazine’s staff considers only products that are available to the public and meet or exceeded its testing-and-evaluation protocols. Candidates must offer a unique value to the American shooting public, whether by innovation, affordability or other stand-out qualifications.

Hydra-Shok Deep was initially launched in 9mm Luger 135-grain. Recently, it has also been released in 40 S&W 165-grain and 45 Auto 210-grain, in 20-count packs.
