Originally designed for law enforcement officers, Federal’s HST line of jacketed hollow points continues the company’s tradition of advancing self-defense technologies. Upon striking a target, the HST bullet expands rapidly to double its caliber as six lead petals push outward and shield the copper petals made by the bullet’s jacket for strong penetration and weight retention.
This .40 S&W loading of the HST uses a 165-grain bullet cased with boxer-primed nickel-plated brass. It achieves a muzzle velocity of 1130 feet per second, delivering 468 foot-pounds of energy.
HST ammo is a premium product that comes at a reasonable price in 50-round boxes, making it easier to shoot what you carry for optimal practice.
Federal Premium Ammunition manufactures rifle, shotgun, and pistol ammunition for military, law enforcement, and self-defense purposes. The company also produces range and rimfire ammo. Headquartered in Minnesota, Federal markets well-known brands such as Hydra-Shok, HST, and Lake City mil-spec rounds.
