Best in business
Review by Jdr
Although it’s a bit overpriced they have fast shipping, and the best customer service in the business. You get what you pay for and lucky Gunner is on their game. Definitely will buy more from them.

Review by Joe
Tried a few different defense ammo brands in my 2 1911s. This one didn’t have any failures to fire or feed.

Hands down best.
Review by Juanvelde
I've been using this ammo in my Sig Carry Scorpion for the last year now and have yet to have any type of failures. I've been so impressed by it that I've switched all of my CC guns to the HST rounds.

Value and service...
Review by John
Once again, I got Lucky. A great price, a superior product, and amazing service. These HST's functioned perfectly in my new XDs. Lucky Gunner comes through again! Thank you.

Federal HST in .45ACP has become my go-to round. It feeds in all of my 1911's. Expansion is outstanding and consistent. You will pay the same for 20 rounds of other comparable loads, great value in the 50 round packaging.

My new carry ammo!
Review by BanjoPicker
I have bounced between the Hydra-Shok, the Hornady Critical Defense, and Critical Duty before finding this cartridge. It doesnt expand as reliably as the Hornady when fired through oddball obstructions like heavy automotive glass, and car tires but when it does expand BOY DOES IT EXPAND! It averages about 1in in diameter when fired into ballistics gel from a Sig 1911 Tacops. This has been a very reliable cartridge. Sealed case and primer, reliable and consistent velocity, penetration depth, and uniformed expansion. I have no problem reccommending this cartridge to someone for personal self defense!

Ideal Defensive Round for Vintage 1911s
Review by Wagonmaster
My Colt 1911 Centennial (with both factory and Wilson Combat mags) likes SAAMI loads and hates +Ps (eliminating many great defensive .45 ACP cartridges) and even low-pressure JHPs could be iffy. What a delight to find that Federal Premium HSTs push both the velocity and energy levels of a 230 gr bullet to very effective defensive levels and expands to awesome proportions, all for a very affordable price--when you can find them. I look to Lucky Gunner regularly for range rounds, but it's great to see hard-to-get defensive cartridges like these available from them when the big-box retailers run dry. I'll certainly be back for more.

Review by D-Day
Just reviewed the little brother of this stuff, Federal's P9HST1 in 9mm. Both the 9mm and the 45 ACP feed perfectly in all of my Kimbers. I have replaced all of my personal defense ammunition with these. Great service from Lucky Gunner as well.

Best HD ammo I've tested so far
Review by big-N-thick45
When I got my HK45 I decided to start my trials out with a couple boxes of the Fed HST Premium LEs and Speer Gold Dot LEs. I went out a couple times to put a box of each down range and the HSTs won by a decent margin.
I was impressed with both rounds, but my groups were consistently tighter with the Fed HSTs. Neither of the rounds had any FTFs or FTEs, so I decided to order more of the Fed HSTs, but will continue testing out different HD rounds to see if anything can top them.

Great defense ammo at a great price
Review by M24C
It is Federal 230 grain HST, gives minimal flash, works in after market barrels. This is allot cheaper in the 50 round box than the 20 round ones I see.

Hollow Point Ammo at Lucky Gunner
Review by Jeff
Haven't fired any yet, but the boxes are in great shape and the ammo looks new. Lucky Gunner seems to be the ONLY outlet for Hollow Point ammo.

Good Purchase, 45 Federal HST
Review by BangClanger
These were selling at a great price. I use the Federal HST in 45, 40 and 9mm. All of them have performed well with no malfunctions. These can be a little hard to find unless you are paying too much for them so the price was right and I bought. Will buy more in the future is the price is right.

Great in Glock 21
Review by Raylan
I've run these thru a glock 21 Gen 3, and they work great. The recoil is soft, but man do they ever hit hard, and fly straight. I like em for carry. I think HST's are about the best JHP you can use in any caliber they make em for. Too bad federal doesn't have a .357magnum version...

Best ammo for a 1911
Review by Morris
Great price from Lucky Gunner. Box of 50! , not 20 rounds.
If you have a 1911 45 ACP pistol this is your best bet.
For a defensive JHP round, in a 1911, stick with 230 grain and not +P
Pretty much guaranteed to function in your 1911 pistol 100% of the time.
For a Glock 45 ACP (21/30/30S/36) I have found this Federal ammo and Hornady (185, 200 and 230 gr)
45 ACP+P to function 100% of the time

if you need to use it, this is the one
Review by bogie5150
discovered these a few years back, shot some into soft snow to check expansion, I used a SIG GSR target II and a Smith model 625JM. The only thing I can say is WOW. all five were perfect picture expansion. all pedals were uniform and expanded about twice the diameter. I wish I could get ahold of the bullets to reload. Thanks lucky gunner for the great price on some devastating ammo :)

Amazing quality with outstanding stopping power
Review by Adam
This is my personal defense ammo of choice. I have never experienced a FTF or FTE. Ammo shoos clean and accurate. Expansion is of the utmost best I have tested.

Federal .45 HST
Review by Karl
Ordered some of the Federal .45 230 HST. The price was great for the premium rounds. I have not fired them yet but they came in great conditions (boxes were perfect, no blemishes on the casings)
