When law enforcement agencies choose a duty round, they use the FBI’s demanding protocol testing to see how different loads compare. In our internal testing, HST 45 Auto (P45HST2S), 40 S&W (P40HST1S) and 9mm Luger (P9HST1S) all scored exceptionally high in every protocol scenario.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Desert Eagle 357 Mag L5 Well, let me tell you. i purchased a brand new desert eagle and I had to spend quite a few $$$'s to see what worked. Most of the stuff I bought was all high end self defense ammo, required by desert eagle. I purchased federal hydra shock 158 grain JHP. No failures at all for 275 rounds!! Perfect ammo!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from only ammo i load for protection this is by far the best ammo, for general protection, in my opinion. Weather out for a walk in the country side or visiting the big city, this will keep you safe, [might not be the best for bears or larger though]
