No one knew how popular the 9mm would be when it came out. Created in 1902, the 9mm Luger is now one of the most popular rounds in the world and is one of the best rounds on the market for self defense.
These 9mm rounds are loaded into premium nickel-plated brass casings that feature non-corrosive boxer primers. Each projectile in this box of 50 is a 124 grain HST jacketed hollow point leaves the barrel at 1,150 feet per second. Federal's HST projectiles are engineered to deliver near 100% weight retention through most barriers, as well as consistent expansion, penetration and fantastic terminal performance.
Federal Premium was founded twenty years after the 9mm came out, and has swept America with their fantastic quality and great prices. When you buy Federal Premium ammunition, you know you are getting high quality ammo that will perform every time you pull the trigger. Pick up a couple boxes of this premium self defense ammo today!
In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Federal 124 gr HST +P fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Smith & Wesson M&P9c pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

Pricey, but considering its purpose...
Review by Lobo
Bought this on the basis of its performance in Lucky Gunner's own mega-review of defense rounds. Was the best, most consistent performer. Will report back if I ever have to use it on a baddie.

This isn’t the be all, end all, but it’s good stuff. I like the HST 147gr too, but I would really like to see federal get better penetration from the +P. That said, it is still one of the best out there.

the ammo has spots all over it. It makes me a little uncomfortable depending on it for defense purposes.

A Self Defense Value!
Review by GunnyJack
We know no one likes to pay too much for ammunition however, when we're talking about Self Defense Ammunition doesn't your life and those of your loved one's deserve the highest quality, consistent and proven Self Defense Ammunition you can afford? Of course our Range Ammunition should be cheap and plentiful. It's for practice and classes... I'd pay any amount to know my choice in Self Defense Ammunition would have the desired effect in an Actual Critical Incident, i dont think that $0.83 Cents Per round for the always reliable Federal HST 9mm+P 124gr is over priced considering the reason why we buy it.
May You Never Absolutely Need It,
Be well, be safe and be blessed,

Fired a group of 7 out of a 3.3-inch barreled Springfield XDs today using sandbags and a green laser.
Group size at 25 yards: 2.1 inches! Impressive.
Thanks to Luckygunner for their ballistics review which helped me pick this round for testing.

Numbers don't add up
Review by J
How is it that the federal HST round in 124 standard pressure have the same performance numbers as the HST 124 + p... / (EDITOR: Thank you. the standard pressure (P9HST1) is correct at 1,150 fps / 364 ft lbs, and we are correcting the +P rounds (P9HST3) to reflect 1,200 fps / 396 ft lbs.)

What 9mm Can Be
Review by Bill
Fantastic round. Have tested it and carried in Glock 19 and now Walther PPS. Feeds flawlessly, low flash and really mild recoil for a +p. It's this type of 9mm ammo that allows you to carry a small defensive pistol with the performance of the "starts with a 4" group.
Can be a little hard to find, but when you do, buy enough for testing, occasional practice and carry.
