We test fired five rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19) Federal 147 gr HST +P 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.

worth the price, when you could find them!
Review by steph
I'd swear by the HST, in 9mm anyway. I switch between the 147+p and the 124 +p depending on what at the time I can come across, as it's a hard find. I use these loads out of my 5.31" barrel. For my 3.3 incher, I went with the HST micro load.

Great Go To Ammo
Review by Kevin
I have used this ammo before with absolutely no problems in my 9mm Glocks. This review is more about Lucky Gunner and the excellent customer service. Being from New York, it is necessary to have ammunition delivered to my local gun shop. LG answered all my questions on chat, took the order and shipped the next business day. Great courteous service at a competitive price.

I shot 10 rounds of this through my cz75 with no problems. The recoil was not much more than the 115g target ammo I was using at the same time.

I have used this ammo in the past and have had no problems with it whatsoever. My recent purchases are kept on hand to build up my supply of ammunition.
