Federal Ammunition 150 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Federal HST ammunition is designed to meet the self-defense needs of law enforcement officers and makes an excellent CCW load as well. Each 9mm Luger cartridge in this case of 200 fires a heavy 150 grain jacketed hollow point bullet with a skived tip designed to expand into six petals upon impact with a target. This 150 gr "micro" load was designed and optimized specifically for short barrel compact pistols with their lower muzzle velocities in mind. The high weight of the bullet provides better penetration and keeps muzzle velocity to a subsonic level of 900 feet per second. This ammo is loaded in Anoka, Minnesota using non-corrosive primers and brass cases.

Ballistic Gel Testing

 

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Federal Ammunition 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a S&W M&P Shield with a 3.1-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Federal Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 9mm Luger (9x19) ammo we have tested so far.
