Federal Ammunition 147 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

You're never outgunned when you load up your carry magazines with these 9mm rounds from Federal. HST ammunition is some the greatest available is constructed using reloadable brass casings that are nickel-plated for slick feeding and resistance to moisture. Each case is fitted with a non-corrosive Boxer primer; HST cartridges have their propellant mixtures laced with flash suppressant in order to stifle muzzle flash in low-light environments. This helps shooters maintain situational awareness, acquire proper sight pictures, and deliver faster follow-up shots. Atop the load is a 147-grain projectile which is heavy for the 9mm Luger but delivers excellent terminal ballistics while producing a smooth cycling impulse.

The HST projectile features a consistent lead core with a deep frontal cavity wrapped in a strong scored copper jacket. As a result, the round will produce high expansion upon impact and penetrate deeply before coming to halt in vital zones. This transfers a great amount of kinetic energy to the heart, lungs, and nerves in an effort to stop a fight and neutralize a threat. Federal Premium, an American company that has been around since 1922, works hard to manufacture some of the most reputable ammo around. Their products have been trusted to fill freezers, win Olympic gold medals, and protect law enforcement officers.
