Federal Ammunition Releases .25 Auto & .32 Auto Defensive Loads

Federal has just released two new pocket pistol defensive loads, .25 Auto Punch and .32 Auto Hydra-Shok Deep.

Pocket pistols, mouse guns, whatever you want to call them, aren’t as popular as they once were. But despite the world of micro 9mms we live in today, extremely little handguns still have their place and plenty of people are still carrying them, even if only as backup pieces. Small defensive guns need small defensive bullets, and Federal has just released two new loads in the form of .32 Auto Hydra-Shok Deep and .25 Auto Punch

.32 ACP Hydra-Shok Deep.

Starting with the .32 ACP load, it features a 68-grain Hydra-Shok Deep Jacketed Hollow Point bullet with an advertised muzzle velocity of 1,000 fps. The projectile also utilizes an improved center post design for more reliable expansion and optimal penetration depth through common barriers. It’s available in 20-round boxes and MSRP is $35.99.


Unlike the defensive load of .32 Auto, .25 ACP is too small for bullets to consistently expand, so Federal instead opted to give the .25 Auto Punch a 45-grain jacketed solid projectile. Muzzle velocity is advertised as 825 fps and Federal says it balanced the performance to provide maximum penetration depth out of a variety of firearms and in the face of various common barriers. It’s also sold in 20-round boxes and MSRP is $23.99.

Neither load is a game-changer by any means, but if you ever carry a .25 or a .32 for self-defense, these can make your little friend a bit more formidable.
