Federal's Premium Personal Defense HST line of JHP duty ammunition offers massive expansion! Given the success of the standard pressure 230 grain Tactical HST load, Federal Premium offers the HST ammunition in the Personal Defense brand. This is some of the best technology out there for handgun ammunition, just check it out in our ballistic gel test. This self-defense 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 part of Federal Premium's Personal Defense line, which shares many characteristics of the Law Enforcement Tactical HST ammunition.
