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

9mm Federal LE Tactical HST 147 Grain +P HP Ammo – Single Box of 50 Rounds



This package contains 50 rounds of Federal LE Tactical 9mm Luger (also known as 9x19 Parabellum) ammunition. Each round is loaded with a 147 grain HST hollow point projectile. These specially designed HST hollow points will not plug, even when passing through tough barriers. The result is impressive weight retention and terminal expansion, perfect for self-defense situations.



This is the next generation in high performance personal protection ammunition. Featuring a round nose profile and nickel-plated brass casings, these 9mm Luger rounds deliver smooth, feeding, function and extraction. When paired with Federal Premium’s unique clean-burning primers, you get the ultimate in function and reliability.



This +P overpressure ammunition is loaded to a higher internal pressure than standard 9mm rounds to produce a higher muzzle velocity and increased stopping power. Each round delivers a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 360 foot pounds.

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.
