We test fired five rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19) Federal 124 gr HST into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) loads.

Great bullet Best Self Defense Round
This is my go-to everyday self-defense carry I got all kinds of plus ps and plus p plus but when I everyday carry and I lights a day I have a Ruger security 9 on me depending on what I'm doing what job on going to will depend on what gun I'm going to have if I'm going to be in the ACC inside staying clean not sweating a bit I might put on my hotrod and bring out my Glock 19 that I called Frankenstein pretty much a Glock 19 with a little bit of generation 3 generation 4 and generation 5 in it but let me tell you one thing people doubt guns that they call Budget guns I don't understand why it's called a budget guy in it starts out selling at $379 what's budget about that just because it's what $100 less than a Glock we're going to call it budget now okay a hundred and let's be specific$120 away from a Glock 9 mm depending on which one a lot of people told me to check out the Taurus the g2 to the g2c the g2s and even the G3now I will say that all of them the G3 is what I was looking for I was looking for a gun like the G3 or like a Glock 19 or like a Ruger security 9 what won me over is I grew up my whole life shooting dao or single action / dao grow up what the meaning I grew up with a bunch of revolversbut transitioning from a revolver to my first semi-auto which was a Beretta 92 which is a hammer fired semi-automatic 15 + 1 full size gun which I loved wish I would have never I was going to say let it out of my family but I never let it out of my family I let a cousin hold it and I all I can say is thank you Reginald painter but besides that I noticed when checking out the guns and which one I wanted to buy and luckily I went gun shopping many years before descovy and luckily I bought a gun 2 weeks before all this bull**** happen and as soon as the bull**** happened I went and bought another two guns just to sell them I've sold to $150 hi points for $400 a piece I sold one Rossi 38 special $300 what I had a hundred and I think $12 in it with tax if I can at least make 60% profit I'm not doing it and it's some of these guns I'm making way more profit I know it's illegal for me to sell the guns but if the government's not going to give the people what they want the people will find what they want and I don't want a bunch of high points I bought them for one reason I know a bunch of dumb motherfukers do but it doesn't matter what gun I told I tell you what it's either going to have Federal HST 124 grain in it or just going to have Federal HST 147 grain in it Or its going to have Underwood. The end if it wasn't for federal Underwood would be my number one I have like a favorite brand out there and it's Underwood but what's weird is they don't make my favorite bullet I wish they would step their game up they make some wicked bulletsbut a lot of their wicked bullets do not stand up to FBI protocol like if you look at 9 mm stance on will that this is not Underwood Underwood makes fragmenting and extreme penetrator extreme defender also they make a extreme expanding bullet and man let me tell you this thing opens up like a ******* parachute I think if this bullet was falling from outer space a Chihuahua sized piece ofmeat would stop it I mean it shoots 1500 feet per second out and I've shot point-blank into 2L and they stopped in the first 2 litter it's very hard to believe then I can put in a red and white box Winchester full metal jacket and sugar through five or six gallons of water straight I know gallons of water ain't the best thing to use but what else do you do you use when you don't have gelatin? okay then let me do me and you do you you can tell me it don't work all that you want pull up in my yard and let me show you
Love the 124 Grain Federal HST
Use the 124 Grain Federal HST in my Glock 19, S&W Shield, and my Sig P365. Feeds with no issues and although I've never tested the ballistics personally, feel confident based on these test results.
Micro 9 * performer
Great accuracy and function in my Sig 938. Very manageable recoil in this micro 9mm. It is difficult to tell the difference in recoil between the 115gr FMJ and this round even though the velocities are very similar.
My duty ammo, on and off duty. Always performs great.
After testing many brands of ammo, in 9mm and .45ACP, this is my first pick! HST in any caliber performance great. My testing was not with ballistic gel, but all testing was done the same way. If my tests were "bad" they were bad for all the rounds fired.
Best Self Defense Ammo
This is the pinnacle of self defense ammo. Through my testing of the most popular sd rounds available today, there is none more reliable or that expand better. These rounds never fail to expand through a variety of barriers and media. Best money can buy!
