Federal Premium Law Enforcement Tactical HST. This 40 S&W ammo was carefully engineered and manufactured by Minnesota’s best so law enforcement officers can defend themselves and others with the best. But here’s the good news: you can defend yourself and your own with this top-shelf .40 cal ammo as well!

The HST jacketed hollow point was developed not to pass the FBI test protocol for defensive ammunition, but to excel at it. Let’s look at Federal’s own test data, which were recorded by firing a 4” test barrel at six blocks of ballistic gelatin (which has the same density as swine flesh) at a range of 10’:
Bare gel - 99% weight retention, 12” penetration, 0.870” expansion
Heavy clothing - 100% weight retention, 12.5” penetration, 0.700” expansion
Steel - 99% weight retention, 17” penetration, 0.490” expansion
Wallboard - 100% weight retention, 10.5” penetration, 0.740” expansion
Plywood - 100% weight retention, 13.5” penetration, 0.700” expansion
Safety glass - 92% weight retention, 10.5” penetration, 0.740” expansion

Federal didn’t just load this ammo with intensely reliable JHPs. They also gave those bullets the nickel-plated brass cases they need in order to feed with the utmost reliability. Nickel-plated cases are additionally protected against corrosion, and make chamber checks easier when there’s not much light around!
