Federal's Premium HST line of JHP ammunition offers massive expansion! This round 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 open 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.

Ballistics Test Summary
After firing five rounds of Federal 124 gr HST from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C into synthetic ballistic gelatin from 10 feet
away through four layers of fabric to simulate clothing, we then measured the expansion and penetration of the
bullets for this 9mm Luger (9x19) load, which you can see in the chart below.
The photos below provide a detailed view of the the expanded bullets that were recovered from the gelatin.
The high speed video shows the first of our five shots as it entered the gel.
