About This Black Hills Ammunition 9mm Luger Ammunition
This 9mm +P round is built by Black Hills Ammunition for self-defense, but it doesn’t have an expanding projectile. What is this witchcraft, you ask? Why, it’s the HoneyBadger bullet, which is designed to make a huge wound channel without increasing in diameter.
This round’s 100 grain bullet features four sharp cutting petals on its tip and sloping channels running down its sides. When the bullet plows through a living target, it violently streams any soft material it comes into contact with off to its sides. The HoneyBadger’s wound cavity may be even wider than a traditional hollow point’s, but it doesn’t have a nose cavity that could clog up to become useless.
The solid copper HoneyBadger is also a lot tougher than a lead core bullet. This helps it blast through a barrier as tough as plywood with hardly any effect on its terminal performance. The copper bullet also shoots clean, and has less chance of getting snagged to cause a jam when you least want one.
Black Hills is a well-established manufacturer with a reputation for their military and industry clients. The HoneyBadger might seem adventurous, but Black Hills wouldn’t load a bullet that hasn’t already proven itself as effective for personal protection. They pair this round’s HoneyBadger with their usual high grade brass shell casing, sensitive primer, and trustworthy propellant.
