    Yup, Figure the wife and I are worth the $40.00 actually I lucked out and had bought a bunch before the great ammo scare/shortage. Hopefully prices will settle back down a little.

    I believe the real formula is this:

    (Thinking HSTs = crap) = CRAP
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Interesting. I've fired around 1,200 HSTs in total with zero malfunctions. Of those [EDIT: 1,200,] ~500 have been 147gr or 147gr +P, all of which have been fired in my P30 without issue. You're honestly the first person who has had anything bad to say about the HST, in my experience.
    I think that as with any other mass-produced product, faults certainly are not impossible.

    However, as with AZ Hawk, I also have just over 1200 rounds (total) of Federal's 147 gr. (standard P9HST2) 9mm HST divided evenly through my 3 main SD/HD pistols (full-sized XDm9, XDm9 3.8 Compact, Ruger SR9c) and another 150 or so through my Kahr PM9.

    I have not had any major issues with this particular cartridge - my current sole concern is with the fact that in my PM9, it seems to "hang" on the first round chambered (regardless of if I drop the slide with the slide-lock/release, per Kahr's recommendations, or if I "power-stroke") once the ramp gets a little dirty (50 shots or 250 shots, it doesn't matter). The 147 gr. Speer GDHP doesn't seem to have this issue, with my PM9. I've polished the ramp on my PM9 a little, and it seems to help, but I'm thinking I may administratively load my PM9 with the Speers, to just take this concern completely out of the equation.

    I have not had any FTFeeds or FTFires with the 147 gr. HST. I also like the fact that at night, it doesn't seem to produce much of a visible muzzle blast, at least from my perspective.
