Effective self-defense requires ammunition that provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance. And HST® delivers. That's why it's already the duty load of choice for law enforcement officers throughout the world. Its specially designed hollow point won't plug while passing through a variety of barriers, and the bullet jacket and core hold together to provide nearly 100 percent weight retention through even the toughest materials.

  • Specially designed hollow point expands reliably through a variety of barriers
  • Expanded diameter and weight retention produce the desired penetration for personal defense situations without over penetrating
  • Superior performance in FBI test protocol used by law enforcement officials to assess and select duty ammunition
  • Bullet nose profile, nickel-plated case and high-performance primer provide the ultimate in function and reliability in semi-automatic handguns

    Great product, fast shipping

    Federal HST makes some of the best expanding, and reliable defense ammunition in the world! I have caught multiple rounds of HST in water and ballistics gel and they have amazing penetration and huge expansion! And they seal the case and primer with lacquer so carrying them everyday doesn't ruin the rounds with sweat! Kom

    Federal 9mm HST

    Posted by Eric Plummer on Feb 27th 2023

    One of the best self defense rounds available, and in the 50 packs it is much cheaper per round than the more common 20rd packs.

    Functions well in Springfield XD

    Posted by Justin Morgan on Jan 23rd 2023

    Specifically, an XDm Elite 9mm with a 4" barrel. All 19 rounds in multiple magazines functioned flawlessly. Great ballistic results on Lucky Gunner's testing, too. Hard to beat Federal HST, and this price for a 50 round box is not much more than most charge for a 20 round box. Great site!

    Absolutely love Recoil Gun Works! And These HSTs

    Posted by John Tanner Jr on Jan 14th 2023

    These are my EDC for work and personal. I used to carry the 147gr but the 124s just have a better balance to me. Recoil Gun Works is the best. Super fast shipping, great prices and quality products!
