    First off, why would you want dinosaur technology?

    Hydra-junk is about the worst performing defensive round available. And for the prices OIve seen shops selling it at, you can get a much better round, Winchester Ranger or Speer Gold Dots, at the same price.

    Try OMB OMB's Express Police Supply - Distributor of 5.11 Tactical Equipment 230 gr Ranger is $24/50.

    There may be better ammo but it seems to be a subjective area with little definitive proof.

    I know this feeds well in my gun. Additionally it has been around quite a while and was or is used by LE which should help if I ever have to defend my choice of ammo in court.

    this is very true.

    i use hydrashok or gold dot whichever is available because it is what the local sherriff dept uses.

    look up any ammunition testing done by ANY reliable source (American Handgunner, Guns, etc) and Hydra is one of the worst performers. The design is over 15 years old.

    The info is out there, widespread.
