Federal Ammunition 124 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Federal HST 9mm ammo - 124 Grain +P Hollow Point

This Federal Law Enforcement Tactical HST ammunition was originally developed for the specific needs of law enforcement personnel. However, these high performance rounds are also an ideal choice for use as a home defense or concealed carry load.

Each of these 9mm rounds is loaded with a 124 grain HST hollow point (HP) projectile engineered for 100% weight retention through most barriers. Designed with a unique polymer tip won't plug while passing through clothing, tissue, or other tough barriers, these rounds deliver consistent expansion, optimum penetration, and amazing terminal performance.

This new production ammunition is packaged in 50 round boxes. These rounds feature non-corrosive boxer primers and are loaded in nickel-plated brass casings for excellent feeding and high-visibility, especially in low light conditions. These are +P overpressure loads that leave the muzzle at a velocity of 1208 feet per second and deliver 364 foot pounds of threat-stopping energy.

    Great defensive ammo, street proven and as good or better than anything available in properly calibrated ballistic gelatin and real-world shootings. Fast shipping and excellent service from Ammunition to go!

    These are excellent performing rounds out of my Springfield Armory XD Mod.2 9mm subcompact. If you are a fan of the HST I would highly recommend the less expensive Punch 124 grain Punch from Federal. Almost identical ballistics stats with the Punch slightly outperforming in deeper penetration if that's something you need like me.

    The Federal HST 124 Gr. Ammo performs very good for defensive purposes. I feel very confident using it. As with all Federal Ammo I've used sense I was a Child very reliable always.
