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

9mm Federal LE Tactical HST 147 Grain HP Ammo – 50 Rounds

Founded in 1922, Federal Premium has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s largest ammo manufacturers. Federal’s line of LE Tactical products was developed for the specific needs of law enforcement personnel. Offering deep penetration, reliable terminal performance, and high-level accuracy, these loads are also perfect for civilian self-defense and concealed carry.

This package contains 50 rounds of Federal LE Tactical 9mm Luger (also known as 9x19 Parabellum) ammunition. Each cartridge is loaded with a 147 grain HST jacketed hollow point (JHP) projectile. HST Hollow Point bullets are engineered to deliver 100 percent weight retention, optimal target penetration, and impressive terminal expansion. These hollow points won’t plug when passing through tough urban barriers, and the bullet jacket and core hold together even after passing through even tough material. This is the next generation in high-performance self-defense ammunition.

This ammunition comes fresh from the factory and is boxer primed and non-corrosive. Featuring nickel-plated brass cases, each round provides smooth feeding, function, and extraction. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 326 foot pounds.

Gel test Results


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.
