This non-hollow-point is available in lightweight 9mm, 40 S&W and 45 Auto handgun options. High velocities, low recoil and reliable feeding make Guard Dog a favorable choice for defending home and family.

Optimal Home Protection
The risk to loved ones in the home is reduced due to its expanding polymer and large frontal expansion through all barriers. Federal's EFMJ technology provides reliable terminal performance and expansion that isn't stopped by materials such as dry wall or light clothing. Standard hollow points can plug up when traveling through material, which stops or impedes expansion and doesn't slow down the bullet. This increases the chance for collateral damage. Guard Dog was specifically designed to do just the opposite. Guard Dog opens as it passes through interior walls, creating a wider surface area and allowing the bullet to dissipate energy. The expanded surface area causes the bullet to slow down with each barrier it comes into contact with, minimizing collateral damage around the home. Decreased probability of serious injury to bystanders in other rooms or houses is sure to make defending home and family with Guard Dog a popular choice.

"Guard Dog is specially designed to expand every time," said Brand Director Rick Stoeckel. "It will perform when you need it most. The non-hollow-point design is exclusive to Federal. We've tested it to minimize the possibility of collateral damage."

Guard Dog Home Defense has a high velocity with low recoil. Exceptional feed and function in semi-automatic handguns keeps homes and families safe. It also gives citizens a reliable carry option where hollow-point ammunition is restricted.
