- possibly the best defensive handgun cartridge available today Review by me
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 2/14/13)
