Product Overview

Effective self-defense requires ammunition that provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance.  And HST® delivers. That’s why it’s already the duty load of choice for law enforcement officers throughout the world. Its specially designed hollow point won't plug while passing through a variety of barriers, and the bullet jacket and core hold together to provide nearly 100 percent weight retention through even the toughest materials.

  • Specially designed hollow point expands reliably through a variety of barriers
  • Expanded diameter and weight retention produce the desired penetration for personal defense situations without over penetrating
  • Superior performance in FBI test protocol used by law enforcement officials to assess and select duty ammunition
  • Bullet nose profile, nickel-plated case and high-performance primer provide the ultimate in function and reliability in semi-automatic handguns

I'm so thankful that they made these easier to get than before. I am a huge fan of this bullet. I trust it with my life. I urge anyone to do the same.

Excellent Barrier Penetration
Thank You FEDERAL for offereing us PUBLIC the HST Bullet! The Honest Citizen should be able to defend his family with the same quality ammo as our law enforcement. HST bullet wont plug as easy as the older design bullets. HST also has excellent expansion compared to older handgun bullets . Now can we have a 38spl 147gr+P HST!!! All 6 of my fixed sight S&W Jframes have a POA/POI using 158gr Also the 148gr Target WC is pretty close. This is why I want a 147 to 158 gr HST loaded in 38spl+P and design to expand well with a 1 7/8 barrel.
