Shooters who choose to protect themselves with the powerful 44 S&W Spl. can now opt for the versatility of Federal® PunchTM. Like all loads in the line, the 180-grain offering was developed using Federal Ammunition’s decades of experience designing the world’s finest defensive handgun loads.

Force X2 Shorty

This .44 S&W SPL loading launches a 180-grain bullet toward your threat. Meant to find a balance between effective penetration and consistent expansion, Federal decided to use a jacketed hollow point. The soft lead core is ideal for the latter. Carrying a gun all day means your ammunition can be exposed to sweat and other moisture. This is why Federal chose to use high-quality brass casings and to use a primer seal, ensuring your rounds ignite when you need them to. As with all of their ammunition, these are made in the United States. Each box of Punch gives you 20 cartridges.


  • Caliber: .44 S&W Special
  • Bullet weight: 180 grains
  • Bullet type: Jacketed hollow point
  • Rounds per box: 20
  • MSRP: $35.99
