When it comes to establishing protocols for testing ammunition, it comes as no surprise that the FBI has set some fairly high standards regarding their personal ammunition requirements. As part of their protocol, defense rounds are fired through barriers such as 10% ballistic gelatin, automobile glass, drywall, and a number of other obstacles to find out how they penetrate after passing through that first object. A problem with many HP rounds is their tendency to clog up, which hinders their penetration and overall performance. The FBI needs ammo capable of piercing a barrier and still doing serious damage, and you should be looking for the same thing yourself. Federal believes it’s important, too, so they created these HST rounds.
Federal’s Premium HST rounds are designed to deliver reliable – and significant – expansion even after passing through barriers. They deliver maximum terminal performance and superior penetration for a number of reasons, one being because the nose of the HP doesn’t become clogged with debris and another being the way the jacket is bonded to the core for exceptional weight retention. In testing, these rounds delivered 13.63” of penetration, 0.63” of expansion, and 90% weight retention after being fired through the aforementioned barriers, plus others.
There are 1000 defense rounds in this case of ammunition. These are 9mm rounds, weighing 124 grain, making them fairly lightweight and capable of moving down-range at higher speeds. They’re Hollow Point (HP) rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact, mushrooming while simultaneously decelerating to create a devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds flies towards your target at a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and muzzle energy of 365 foot-pounds. These are high quality, American-made defense rounds. Federal manufactures them at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Don’t trust your safety to just anyone. Order your 1000-round case today and start training to be truly prepared in case of the worst-case scenario.
