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.

First shot at 25yds was a hit!
Shot this for the first time on Thanksgiving, out of my Bond Arms Bullpup 9mm pistol (3.35" barrel)... I aimed at a 3" steel target 25yds away & hit with my 1st shot, I was not at all expecting that! No failures whatsoever out of the Bullpup 9, shot probably 28 cartridges total. Shoots easily too, I was expecting these to have a lot more kick, but 'eh, they felt goo to fire.
Great range ammo
I always like the ammo I get @. Lucky Gunner!!! Their service quick and easy. The bucket ammo is convenient. I can carry that to the range and shoot all those rounds without any hiccups. Keep up the good work!!!!
Good ammo at a good price these days
First purchase from Lucky Gunner. I know them from their videos - YouTube is the only social media I do. Transaction was smooth and delivery was quick. I know what I like, so my buying online is based on price and delivery and am happy with my experience. Will order again.
It was accurate and fun to shoot. No bobbles or miss feeds. Great service and delivery time as well!
I found this ammunition to function well in my sig 365, 365xl, and Walther ppq m2. Accurate and no miss feeds. Prompt service and delivery. I will stock up more of this stuff in the near future
acceptable recoil, low muzzle flash, accurate. I pray she never has to need it.
I purchased this for my daughter for concealed carry. She ran 1 box thru her pistol. She advised slightly more perceived recoil but she was more accurate than with range ammo.
Love HST but disappointed with what I received.
I love Federal HST in every caliber they’re made in. That said, I was disappointed buy my recent purchase of six boxes of the 124gr +p. 35 to 40 rounds from each of the six boxes I bought had skives that weren’t cut correctly. They look like the cutter was really dull and made a mess of the skive cutting process. There are multiple cuts on each of the six cuts in the nose of the projectile. I don’t have ballistics gel to shoot them into but I did shoot them into 4 layers of denim backed by water jugs and they did expand. That’s not a definitive by any means though. These must of been Federal’s “seconds” or “rejects” or something. I’m sure I’m not the only person to receive ammo like this. At $1 a round, that sucks. I can’t recommend the purchase of these rounds from Lucky Gunner till they make sure they aren’t selling these particular cartridges anymore. Thank you.
Best self defense and LE ammo. I chronograph graphed and tested performance which was outstanding. The bullet expansion and penetration was outstanding....I consider this ammunition the best LE n self defense ammunition
My comments are in previous box
My preferred 124gr+p
Ive decided on the 124gr+p Federal HST as my carry round in my Walther PDP 4" compact so I fired 200 rounds in one session with no problems. I put this on par with Speers 124gr+p GDHP. At .84cpr when the sale was going I'm happy I stocked up.
Affordable and reliable ammo
I only used 20 rounds, but no misfires, no hang-ups and all the rounds looked pristine. I haven't fired a weapon in about 15 years, so my aim wasn't that great, but all shots made it to the target. Pattern could be covered with a ball cap, so still effective.
Top Notch Defensive Ammo
This is my “go to” self-defense ammo. Excellent penetration and expansion for a 9mm. Accurate and reliable. Sure, it recoils more than 115gr range ammo but even in my Glock 43 it’s not bad. Used by many law enforcement agencies.
Best balance of value and performance for self defense ammo
I've collected a lot of different self defense ammo to compare and see what shot the best through my HK pistols. I tested a variety of brands through 9mm and 40SW full size, compact, and subcompact guns. Your typical 50rd budget box of hollow points shot like ball ammo. No consistency. Hornady Critical Defense was the best performer as far as grouping. The Federal HST shot nearly as good as the Hornady, was consistent, and the price is better meaning you can actually afford to practice with it. I can't stress enough how important it is to practice with what you carry - both gun and ammo! Zero malfunctions with Federal. I've committed to loading all my hand guns with HST.
These are thoroughly tested and proven as reliable, accurate, and effective. For me out of a couple different pistols, they fed and fired reliably and consistently accurately. I can't vouch for effectiveness for defense however...
This is my carry load
I really like this ammo, I carry it every day. You guys are one of few that carry this ammo but the prices are ridiculous. I used to get this for $30 a box.
Top notch defense ammo
This is good quality stuff. Expands reliably, penetrates well, and not too much recoil. I fired off a couple of clips at the range to get acquainted with it and grouping was tight. Pretty loud for a 9mm.
Pricey, but considering its purpose...
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.
A Self Defense Value!
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
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.)
Confidence Carry +P 124 gr HST
Federal Premium "Tactical" Law Enforcement loaded in my Glock 34 is carried daily. Very very accurate tactical high-velocity 9mm ammo. My favorite (: when needed it will deliver!
What 9mm Can Be
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.
