Federal Premium listened to its customers and is offering its new HST self-defense load to consumers. HST was specifically designed to meet FBI protocols and was limited to law enforcement sales, but is now available to anyone in three calibers as part of the company’s Personal Defense line. Designed by renowned bullet engineer Tom Burczynski, of Hydra-Shok and EFMJ fame, HST has undergone extensive testing through seven different barriers, meeting or exceeding FBI standards in every instance. The bullet makes a larger hole than similar offerings thanks to its enhanced expansion, but still penetrates deep, ensuring its effectiveness for personal protection.

“If you are looking for ammunition for your defensive handgun, Federal’s decision to offer HST loads to consumers is good news, especially considering its ability to defeat intermediate barriers.” —Richard Mann, Ammo Editor.

Federal Premium: (800) 379-1732.

  • Nonbonded bullet maximizes expansion without limiting penetration.
  • Co-aligned, internal core and jacket skives enhance bullet upset.
  • Meets FBI performance protocols.
  • Available in 9 mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.
