A Less Expensive, But Still Impressive, Punch

The theory behind Federal Premium’s Punch line was to produce a good overall personal protection round geared to deliver in most common self-defense applications with a hollow-point bullet that is designed to walk the line between effective penetration and expansion. Further, they are priced more affordably than the company’s more Gucci-level JHP offerings. For instance, the MSRP on a 20-round box of Punch in .45 ACP is $23.99 whereas HST and Hydra-Shok Deep run $34.99 for the same count and caliber.

But how did it perform in tests?

Not too shabby.
