Introducing Punch™Personal Defense® rimfire from Federal Premium®. The loads' nickel-plated lead-core bullet is propelled at extreme velocities and engineered to minimize expansion to hit critical penetration depths through short-barrel handguns. Stringent function testing also ensures the most reliable ignition, cycling and overall performance. So, whether you want to carry a backup gun, don't feel comfortable with centerfires, or simply want to get more versatility from your rimfire pistol, Punch makes these cartridges viable choices for the first time ever.

  • Projectile profile and composition optimized for the deepest penetration through short-barrel handguns
  • Rigorous function testing ensures reliability
  • Nickel-plated case for ease of extraction and corrosion resistance
  • 50-count boxes
  • Maximum velocity for energy and penetration: 22 LR achieves 1,070 fps through 2-inch barrel handguns, 1,650 fps out of 24-inch rifle barrels

The hottest 22lr i have ever shot
I got these to carry in my ruger lcp 2 for edc. If got a little over 1000 of them through my pistol between vetting the pistol and the ammo. Had absolutely zero ammo related malfunctions with these. I dont have ballistic gel, but in my back yard plinkery i got to bouncing 36 grain golden bullets off an empty helium tank i had laying around, just out of curiosity i swapping to the punch to see what they would do. Golden bullets knocked 2 .5” deep dents, punch drilled clean through the front side and put 1/4” dents in the back. I know it is not scientific but they are designed to get penetration and that they do.

It works great in my 22's and gel tests
Seeing multiple gel tests and how well it works in my guns, i'll be getting even more of it.

Extremely Flat Shooting Round
I found this ammo to be crazy accurate from 50 feet out to 300 feet in my testing. I have not shot it further away from my targets, so far. I was shooting it in a bone stock 10/22 brand new out of the box. Approximately 150 rounds used in this session. Very impressed and will be purchasing more as needed.
