    40 Cal Federal HST 155 Grain Government Contract Ammo

    Anybody have any info on this ammo?

    I ordered four boxes of it so I'll let you know when it arrives. This may sound like a stupid question but what do they mean by " reloadable with one of Federals most popular defense / law enforcement bullets, the HST"?? Was this ammo reloaded by someone other than Federal?

    Note it says "reloadable." I think that just means that as they use brass it can be reloaded. Also think it would state on the box that it was reloaded. The Government most probably would not use reloaded ammo, though I could be wrong. Looks like a real good price depending on the shipping.

    seems like a decent price for self defense ammo and sg's shipping rates are generally pretty reasonable. Doubtful federal bothers with reloads.

    Sgammo is a great place to get ammo. They are on my list, and I watch to see what they get in.

    That ammo is priced great,I quit shooting HST when they quit selling to Companies that were selling to Civilians,I've been carrying Ranger T's lately,but plan on switching to Gold Dots on my next order of SD ammo due to better penetration thru barriers

    I will be posting a series of videos on my youtube channel this summer regarding balistics. I will be doing more than just the typical "shoot into water jugs" testing.
    I will be testing in the following situations:

    shooting JHP through car doors and into balstic media
    shooting JHP through Pylwood and into balstic media
    shooting JHP through Drywall and into balstic media
    shooting JHP through car windows and into balstic media


    If you want your round tested feel free to post message me and we can work something out. I don't have the means to buy all the common hand gun rounds on the market to test them. I have the means to test every round except the .357sig.

    I would love to test some Gold Dots, Hornady Critical Duty/Critical Defense, Federal, Winchester, Etc. Post message me. for more details or suggestions.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
