    After test reviews in 3-4” barrels this ammo was rated very well. As accurate as can be with my hand held shooting and good expansion at non + P velocities.

    Fast delivery. Powerful rounds that had noticeably more kick than, say, the Hornady Critical Defense ammo. Good times at the range with this stuff. Considering it part of my go to ammo for my self defense stock pile.

    I've used normal pressure Federal HST in 124gr and 147gr for years. I've had no issues in any pistol (Glock, Dan Wesson, Kimber HK, Sig or Springfield). Bottom line: always reliable and always accurate (POI=POA). I'll use this as long as Federal makes it! I've also been getting my HST from Ammotogo for years as they can be counted on to have it in stock. Availability, good price and fast shipping - what else would anyone need.

    Great experience. My shipment was open and 2 boxes missing out of the 10 I had ordered. Ammo to Go sent replacement ammo to make me whole. Very good to deal with. I called them and answered a few questions, sent them pictures of the box they came in, and they sent the 2 boxes that Fedex had lost. Will definitely buy from them again.

    High quality round, smooth feeding, clean burning, leaves minimal fouling. Very reliable and with only moderate recoil in subcompact pistols like the M&P Shield and Glock 26. I like the 124 grain standard pressure version the best of the HST variants. Quick shipping from Ammo To Go was icing on the cake.

    HST was my duty ammo on the job for years, and I carry it now, since retiring. Never had a hiccup with it in any of my weapons. My little Sig P365 loves this ammo in 124gr.

    After 39 years in law enforcement, I have had tested many brands/bullets/weights/etc of ammo. Testing was not in aa lab, and some would say not scientific. I say I compared many rounds and HST always performed the best. Carried it on the job, and carry it now as LEOSA. HST and Gold Dot are the best. (HST first). Look at YouTube for many, many tests. You’ll see!

    Cant recommend it. Loaded a mag and chambered it in my CZ 75BD, slide was stuck when i wanted to do a chamber check, had to remove the slide with the round in the chamber. thats not good. To clarify, i have fired 1000 rounds of cheap FMJ ammo with one malfunction and 100 rounds of entry level JHP magtech ammo with no malfunctions, but this is really not great, for some reason this will not work in some chambers, maybe a Glock will do, but here it didn't work, which is sad considering how expensive it is. Also a round jammed the magazine, never had this issue with FMJ ammo. To clarify this was my experience in a high quality 9mm firearm, maybe it was a bad lot and you might have a different experience, but depending on what gun you have you might want to switch to a different HP round with a smaller hole in the tip

    Love this ammo. Ballistics of this ammo (1150 FPS/364 lbs) is the same as American Eagle 9mm 124 grain FMJ. Great to know the results of my practice on the range will be the same with my carry ammo.
