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 2 out of 5 by from Failed to expand Jacket came off and failed to expand. I like HST and use them in all my duty/off dutt carry weapons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability is my biggest concern. And Federal is definitely realiable. My whole arsenal is arranged around 9mm and 38 spcl. It makes things easier when it comes to having only a couple different calibers. I train and shoot with what I carry and store. Meaning I target practice with the good stuff and don't only shoot the cheap stuff at the range. Now I do purchase some FMJ, like guard dog, but I prefer JHP for self defense and practice with what I intend to use and shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best round if you can't carry 45acp Has the penatration abilty due to weight. Very good self defense round.
