20 Rounds of .40 S&W Ammo by Federal - 180gr HST JHP

59 Ready to Ship


Ammo Overview

Quantity - 20 rounds per box
Manufacturer - Federal
Bullet - 180 grain jacketed hollow point (JHP)
Casing - Boxer-primed brass


HST ammunition is Federal's latest development in personal defense cartridges. Designed to excel at the FBI's rigorous ammo tests, HST rounds feature a bullet with a patented skived-tip design that breaks into six long petals upon contact with an assailant. Instead of a mushroom shape, the expanded round looks more like a star; this shape provides better penetration without giving up anything in the way of expansion. Additionally, the jacket is mechanically locked near the base of the core to provide optimal weight retention.

These .40 S&W cartridges fire a heavy 180 grain version of the HST bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1,010 feet per second. This produces typical ballistics and recoil for the .40 Smith & Wesson and makes it easy to find affordable training ammo with similar trajectories. Each box contains 20 cartridges.

HST ammunition is loaded in Anoka, Minnesota using non-corrosive Boxer primers and brass cases plated with nickel to provide better durability over long periods of daily carry.
