Federal Premium Low Recoil Ammo

Today I’m writing a review on my experience with the Federal Premium Ammunition Low Recoil Personal Defense Ammo.

I picked up a few boxes of these rounds in both .45 and 9mm, as this is the caliber I typically carry.

Federal claims the personal defense (hollow point to prevent unnecessary bullet travel) low recoil rounds img_4910“Significantly reduces recoil.” I can’t confirm whether recoil was indeed reduced significantly. I shot regular FMJ rounds of the same caliber, out of the same gun, back to back, and didn’t notice a ‘significant’ reduction in recoil.

I did notice it was slightly less recoil, but nothing I would boast about. Then again, my sample size was relatively small, as I only shot about 10 rounds in both .45 and 9mm.

I had a buddy shoot the ammo as well and he didn’t notice a reduced recoil.

Overall, the main reason I purchased this ammo was to use as carry ammo and for that purpose I think it’s more than adequate.

Ammo used:

  • Federal Ammo 9mm, .45 ACP

Shot on:

  • iPhone 6
  • Nikon P7000
