    LGStore had 50-round boxes of Federal HST 230gr JHP (P45HST2) for $24.95 with a 4-box limit. I bought 4 and went back the next day and they were gone.

    Great price! I found some online for about that price, but haven't seen any in stores anywhere close to that. Heck, some of the stores are charging more than that for noname-brand FMJ!

    I've been using HST for several years. So far I haven't found any of my guns that didn't like it.

    Correct me if I am incorrect, but from what I am reading, this is the 2012 test. There are quite a few rounds that meet or exceed FBI protocol not mentioned on the list. Hornady and Double Tap are 2 manufacturers that come to mind immediately. I don't place too much faith in FBI testing for a defense caliber. Too much penetration after going through a layer of glass, wood or sheet metal. May as well use ball ammo.
