Yup, Hydra-Shok bullets are now a reloading component. So, cook away reloaders … within reason. Given its primary purpose is defensive, Federal has focused on the most popular defensive calibers – .355 (.380 ACP, 9mm), .357 (.357 Mag, .38 Spl), .400 (.40 S&W, 10mm) and .451 (.45 ACP). But it’s offering each in two weights, so you’ll have a little wiggle room for your personal preferences. Depending on caliber, the MSRP on batches of 50 to 100 range from $18.95 to $30.95.
