Great carry ammo
Review by Jack
This along with the American Eagle 147 grain FMJ are the two rounds I use in my HK VP9SK pistols. For the HST 147 grain, I've shot somewhere between 300-500 rounds' worth. They've all functioned flawlessly, and these rounds seem well made. They don't penetrate as much as 124 grain ammo, but whether or not that's a good thing depends on your context of course. According to Lucky Gunner's ballistics tests, it averages close to the middle of the 12-18 inch range the FBI recommends, when shot out of a 3.5 inch barrel as you might find in a compact carry gun. This stuff is pricey especially in the age of Corona and the historic levels of gun and ammo sales in 2020! But Lucky Gunner's service has always been excellent!! :-)

11 out of the 60 bullets I bought for 78 cents a round had creased brass. 11 out of 60 damaged bullets. Stay away from these.

Great Ammo. Carried HST+P 230 for 10 years on duty. Though never used on a human; was very impressed with performances on a attacking dog, and numerous injured deer along the roadways. The shear destruction done to a deer's skull made you have faith in your equipment.

Purchased these a while back and functioned flawless in my AR. The steel core rounds allowed me to shoot through 1/4” steel vs my 77 grn HPBT made a nice divot but didn’t penetrate the same steel. Used the brass to reload and zero problems!

Superior service from Lucky Gunner
Review by Andrew
Received my 40 S&W, 180 gr HSTs 3 days after placing my order. Super fast shipping considering there was a major US holiday in the middle (4th of July) of the order. Lucky Gunner customer service is second to none. Thanks.

Review by grouchy
I bought 500 rounds to shoot at steel targets. On impact, the bullet does exactly what it was designed to do and does not damage the target. In informal testing (from 50 yards) impact on the hardened steep plates leaves a nice temporary copper dot at the impact point. Shooting at mild steel (A36) the bullet makes a significant crater but does not penetrate 3/16 material. any of the standard bullets will penetrate through this thickness. I do not have any drywall material on hand to test these rounds against.
Used against the intended targets they eliminate any worry of ricochet after impact,
IN MY RIFLE as tested the accuracy was not quite as good as some other ammunition, but was still well within a 3 inch circle at 50 yards on every shot. In short, good fun, and at current ammo prices, a decent value, particularly if you save the brass for reloading.

I LIKE it!
Review by druss
This ammo is worth the price. I have reloaded these after use, and the reloads do better than other magnums I have used before. ( I usually drop to 210g on reloads- knocks back kick and seems to make recovery better for me. Wish I was rich and could afford to buy more of them!

Although it’s a bit overpriced they have fast shipping, and the best customer service in the business. You get what you pay for and lucky Gunner is on their game. Definitely will buy more from them.

Bad nickel plating
Review by Ruben
First of all, Lucky Gunner is the best place in the World to buy ammo. Best prices, fastest shipping and most reliable online place for ammo. I definitely continue buying my ammo here.
Regarding the Federal Premium 9mm ammunition, I have Federal Premium as my most reliable 9mm and 45 ACP ammo for personal defense, but the last batch I received in 9mm (June 25, 2020) was the new 2020 production (new boxes). I was instantly disappointed when inspecting each case. While the bottom of the ammo case (adyacent to the primer) always have a brush finish, the circumferential surface of the case normally have a near mirror polish finish nickel-plating. And maybe You think this is just a cosmetic issue but it isn't because the near mirror polish nickel-plating feed smoother than your average brass casing due to its naturally lower friction than brass which helps in overall with smooth feedings and extractions in semi-automatic weapons. Specifically, each ammo case have the same exact brush finish of regular brass ammo just with nickel color. The surface is in no way smooth as it should be. Federal and Hornady Critical defense ammo feed and extract reliably thanks to that smooth surface due to the near mirror polish finish. All 4 boxes of 50 rounds (all 200 rounds) have the same problem. I think that's why the boxes sold by $0.86/round because the quality is not the same. Now I need to use $0.86/round ammo for range practice because I don't trust this for personal defense. However, in no way Lucky Gunner is responsible for this as I know those boxes are brand new production. This is maybe Federal Premium company trying to cut corner in production to meet the high than normal demand for ammo during this crisis in our country. I will try to order another box of 50 to see if that's what just a bad batch, if not I'll need to change brand.
