Like its name implies, this round is outfitted with an HST. It’s a bullet that produces six sharp cutting petals during expansion, creating a wide wound channel without increasing its surface area to a point that would cause it to penetrate to an inadequate depth to strike a vital. The HST wears a cannelure that tethers its core to its jacket to ensure weight retention adequate for deep penetration as well. This round’s HST is relatively heavy for a self-defense bullet of its caliber, which in conjunction with its lower muzzle velocity decreases the recoil perceived by the shooter.
This round’s bullet profile and nickel plated casing both promote effortless feeding in a semi-automatic, and that latter feature further improves the round’s ability to resist corrosion. A specially formulated propellant limits muzzle flash, so your first shot won’t be the only one you can aim accurately in the dark. Your subcompact handgun will thank you for this cartridge!
