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.

Premium Technology

Hydra-Shok®

  1. Consistent propellant
  2. Nickel-plated brass case
  3. Center-post hollow-point design provides efficient energy transfer
  4. Unique Federal® primer
  5. Accuracy and superb overall ballistic performance
  6. Notched copper jacket initiates and controls expansion
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Carry Ammo for a 40! This is my favorite ammo for a 40. Another great thing about it is your can use the cheap AE 155gr FMJ for practice since they shoot identically. Federal just needs to make more!
