Love Hydra-Shok!
I carry these in my snub nosed revolvers. They are not too hot and recoil is stout but manageable. Accurate and reliable. Never had a failure to fire or a squib load.

Center post?
I was glad to see these back in stock and promptly ordered 3 boxes. Today when they arrived I opened the box was pleasantly surprised to see that they used nickel plated cases. Unfortunately upon examining the projectiles I noticed that every single one is missing the trademark center post that the Hydra Shok is known for. I can see some lead in the center of each one where it appears that they tried and failed to form the center post.
