Compare this 230 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) ammunition from Federal to some other 45 ACP Ammo |


Federal's Premium Law Enforcement HST line of JHP duty ammunition offers massive expansion! This duty load has a pre-skived bullet tip which causes the bullet to expand into large petals that cause a large permanent wound cavity. The unique design of this bullet actually forces the lead petals during expansion to protect the copper petals behind them. This results in increased weight retention allowing it to still achieve deep penetration through a variety of barriers prescribed by the FBI test protocols.

This product is brand new, nickel plated brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

This is top of the line, American-made defense ammo made by ATK (same company that makes Speer Lawman, CCI, Blazer Brass, etc). This product is designed for Law Enforcement and occasionally made available to the general public through police trade-ins.

- it doesn't get any better.

Customer Reviews

Good Defensive Ammo Be Prepared to Pay Review by Brandon
Great ammo, but I feel you're spending a lot of money for the name. I mean we're talking .45 is there really a need for JHP? That's for you to decide. But the +P is loaded HOT and recoil is stout in my 4" alloy 1911. follow up shots were noticeably slower because of this. Wouldn't bother in a full size 5" but with the shorter barrel I feel the extra pressure will help expansion. May just stick with ball for SD .45 (Posted on 7/5/15)
Ammo Purchase Review by CWO
Superb from start to finish. The availability, pricing, shipment and follow-up were all superb. Keep it up and I'll be back for more. (Posted on 3/13/15)
The best ammo from a great company Review by cwson79
Shipping was fast and I shoot furious. (Posted on 3/8/15)
Great Ammo Review by Jim
This is what a police officer recommended to me for self defense ammo. That was many years ago and it has always stood the test of time. Never had a mis-fire due to ammo. I like Speer also, but the HST is the best and Federal just keeps making it better and better. It may be called Hydra-Shok or HST etc.. but its always a quality round and I bet my life on them. (Posted on 2/4/15)
The best. Review by "Stoney"
I use a Colt 45 Defender. This ammo is accurate and it feeds perfectly without jamming. I consider it the best I have ever used through my Colt. I would recommend this ammo to anyone who wants a reliable round. (On target 100%) (Posted on 1/16/15)
Great product, great service! Review by fmpros
As always the service and arrival of the product was great. Since I use these for defense I only ran a couple of clips through my Para Slim Hawg. Had absolutely no feeding/ejection issues and, at short range since that's all I shot, excellent accuracy. Very pleased. (Posted on 12/14/14)

Great service and great ammo at an even greater price. This stuff is hot and functions great in my XD. Will be buying more when it is avaliable. Thanks Lucky Gunner! (Posted on 9/17/14)
great stuff. Review by a. stocks
it is very good, very clean burning, very powerful love it. (Posted on 3/10/14)
hot ammo Review by 460xvr
I have an FNH FNX 45ACP, with 15 round mags, this ammo in particular is a +p and used as a test for the pistol, 3 mags spit right out like nothing and you could feel the +p, this is now what sits on my night stand, once again excellent service from L G !!! (Posted on 11/14/13)
possibly the best defensive handgun cartridge available today Review by me
This may be the best defensive handgun cartridge available today.

Hard to find because ATK normally sells the HST ammunition to law enforcement only, this round is highly destructive in soft tissue and also very resistant to clogging with clothing. Expansion to in excess of 1" in diameter is common with the .45 caliber version, combined with excellent penetration, even through hard barriers.

All the HST ammunition that contains bullets that are heavy for caliber (230gr .45, 180gr .40, and 147gr 9mm) are on the short list of ammunition that performs very well both in laboratory testing and on the street. Recommended without reservation, if you can get it. (Posted on 2/13/13)
