    I carry HST's. You can get HST, Rangers, Gold dots and other proven loads and you get 50 rounds per box instead of 25 hornady CD for the same price. I would carry the Hornady Tap. But, they are still more $$
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Just did a you tube search on Federal HST. I don't recall seeing that round in the gun stores. I wish the guy on youtube would have wrapped his test jugs in some clothing before shooting them. but the round performed flawlessly in the milk jugs.

    Get rid of the CD ammo and go out and get some HST, PDX1, or Gold Dot.

    Or you could go look for tests of HST done by professionals in which they are shot through a variety of barriers, including heavy clothing.

    Spoiler alert: They expand! Even when shot through heavy clothing. So do Gold Dots. So do Ranger-Ts.

    Not to belabor the point, but I would also pick HST, Gold Dots or Ranger-T's before ever considering using a home remedy to get a round to feed reliably.

    Here's a great read on the effectiveness of the mentioned rounds.

    Bit off topic but how do Ranger-T's differ from PDX-1's? I can find PDX1's all over locally but not the Rangers. Would it be worth ordering the Rangers over buying the PDX locally?

    Rangers might be cheaper, but PDX1's are imperceptibly updated Bonded Ranger-T's. The only difference is that Ranger-T's are marketed towards LEOs and PDX1 is marketed towards CCers.

    I personally like Hornady CD but I would never use a round that did not, in my personal experience, feed reliably through my gun without modifications. NEVER.

    Get a .45 and worry less about expansion.

    Federal HST hollowpoint expansion is very hard to argue against.

    Take some 1200 grit emery cloth and polish the ramp going into the chamber.
    Had a simular problem in a 9 MM using hydraskoks. Fixed that problem in a hurry.

    I personally like Hornady CD Self defense ammo!

    I have it currently loaded in .45 & .44 Spl. I too, like CD's expansion properties and respect the thought of "shot placement" also, but something about this ammo has me sold.

    I quiver at the thought of being on the bad end of a CD .44 Spl (the velocity is pretty hot) slug at "coffee breath" distances!

    This is why I carry Cor-Bon DPX in 9MM, 40S&W and 45ACP. It functions in all of my guns and suprasses the FBI and others penetration requirements. I can also get lots of it here in the Atlanta Ga area. I have never been able to buy the Winchester bullets as no one I buy from has it.
