9mm (.356) 147 gr Hybrid Hollow Point

Berry’s BP 9mm .356 147gr HHP bullets are precision-made, providing excellent consistency for those seeking both accuracy and stopping power. A solid choice for those who prioritize quality in their ammunition components.

History & Evolution of .40 Cal Bullets

The .40 caliber bullet was developed for law enforcement agencies in order to bridge the gap between the high velocity of 9mm rounds and the substantial stopping power of .45 ACP. Initially favored for its balance of power and control, the .40 cal has undergone significant advancements, particularly in bullet design and performance characteristics. Hybrid hollow point bullets, like Berry’s .40 180 gr bullets, represent these advancements by combining deep penetration with the rapid expansion and consistent performance. Over the years, these bullets have grown to be versatile and affordable enough to be suitable for civilian applications like home defense and plinking.

Exceptional for Self-Defense

Berry’s .40 cal hybrid hollow point bullets are engineered specifically for self-defense applications. The hybrid hollow point design excels in critical defense situations by ensuring maximum expansion upon impact, a key factor in neutralizing threats swiftly while reducing the likelihood of collateral damage. The expanded diameter of the hollow point increases the bullet’s stopping power without over-penetrating, crucial for safety in densely populated environments. Coupled with the power of a .40 caliber, these bullets provide a formidable solution for personal protection. While you may be tempted to lean toward 9mm bullets due to their higher capacity magazines and lesser recoil, a 9mm will not provide the power and expansion benefits of a .40 cal HHP. Like 9mm bullets, .40 cal ammo is compatible with various firearms, including popular models like the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0.
