ANOKA, Minnesota - June 10, 2024 - Federal Ammunition adds a 25 Auto 45 Grain, Solid load to its popular Punch Personal Defense product line. This new load is now available at select dealers.

“The primary purpose of our Punch product line is to provide an easy answer to the question of ‘What ammo should I use for defense?’ for each cartridge. As such, the product line can feature any bullet design from expanding hollow points to deeper penetrating solids,” said Federal’s Handgun Product Manager Chris Laack. “Much like we discovered while developing the 22 LR Punch, the tiny 25 Auto cartridge provides limited potential to work with. Even the best 25-caliber hollow point bullet may not reliably expand; if it does, the penetration depth is minimal. We found this round's most effective defense bullet to be a non-expanding solid. The results outperform competitors' rounds in this cartridge.”

Punch draws from Federal Ammunition’s decades of experience designing the world’s finest defensive handgun loads. It features ultra-effective bullets for terminal performance and quality brass and sealed primers to deliver the reliable feeding and ignition needed when it counts the most.

Federal successfully launched Its Punch line in 2020, and today, the product lineup includes seven cartridge options. The new Punch 25 Auto, 45 Grain, Solid load is available in 20-count boxes at an MSRP of $23.99.

Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide. For more information on all products from Federal or to shop online, visit
