I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

What is the FBI? We do not recognize them in my hood! If, and after they leave Quantico, they should practice supporting the US Constitution.....wich they are sworn to......... Just Sayin.

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.
A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."
