FEDERAL Federal Premium® Guard Dog™ Handgun Ammo

A step beyond traditional home-defense hollow points. The polymer-filled, FMJ-style bullets will not plug with barrier material, enabling them to deliver reliable, devastating expansion and minimal penetration through interior walls. Per 20.

This is excellent ammo for home or anywhere. Might be the best to use to prevent over penetration. It feeds flawlessly through a glock 17 and a glock 26. It's all I carry and use for self defense in my glock 26. If you want an alternative to a hollow point. this could be your best bet.

I have personally seen balistic tests done at the factory and I am very impressed with the Guard Dog round. I have two children and I feel confident with my magazine full of Guard Dogs.

Awesome round!

Excellent customer service from Cab's! All the video in the other review does (very well BTW) is prove the Guard Dog ammo does exactly what it is advertised to do- hit one target and STOP! Not hit your neighbor or your kids room from your bedroom because you want to spray and pray from your bedroom and log some sleepy trigger time. Every gun I own has a mag of Guard Dog should I ever need it.

Fails to penetrate deep enough.

I am a big believer in the tests done by Tnoutdoors9 on Youtube. He tested this ammo in simtest gelatin, and it failed to penetrate enough (about 9 inches, when the FBI requires 12). Also, it was noted that there is an absence of cutting action because there are no petals. Lastly, he did a sheetrock test, and it actually penetrated about the same into a simtest block after passing through a wall. See the test for yourself by searching.
