    Thanks! I was debating changing carry ammo because the HST was so hard to find and had been out of stock forever.

    Price has gone up a little but still pretty dang good for a 50 round box.

    I am stocked up now.

    Federal HST is one hot rockin' round. Our tactical group did shooting comparisson with it head to head with several other makes and it came out on top....and impressively so at that.
    It's what I carry in either my .45acp or my 9mm.

    Their website still shows "out of stock", as it has for the last 3+ months...

    It was showing in stock but it is out of stock again. You have to jump on it when they have it.

    Question 45HST1 or 45HST2???

    Can someone help me out here?
    Streicher's lists both of these choices with the "bullet spec" for HST1 shown as "+P" and HST2 as "Hollowpoint". Anyone know if these are both 230gr or what?
    Thanks!

    Does the Federal Tactical Bonded use the same bullet design as the HST besides from being bonded?

    Talking

    I've got some

    Federal Tactical Bonded 180gr
    Federal Tactical Bonded 230gr +P
    Federal HST 180gr
    Federal HST 165gr
    Federal HydraShok 185gr +P

    on the way!!! I haven't seen much info on the Bonded round, but the HSTs look to be top performers!!

    I had been carrying 230gr HydraShoks .45 and 165gr HydraShoks .40 (Tactical Box) but I think that I'm going to switch the HST and Bonded once I test it.

    Wondering about the difference in these and the P45HS1G Tactical Hydra-shoks that I have? Are mine still considered a good defensive round or are they outdated?

    The 230gr HydraShoks are still some excellent rounds. The HSTs are just newer technology! There are some pretty impressive info on this site and others about these rounds. HydraShoks are still great, but old news compared to the HSTs.

    I carry the P45HS1Gs also, but I just bought about 600 rounds of 230gr +P LE45T1 (Federal Tactical Bonded) that I'm going to test this weekend. I'm still trying to track down some 230gr HSts...They sell out fast.

    Yes both versions are 230gr. with different stock #'s to reflect +P and non+P. The +P has some extra a%* behind it. It gave my USP45 Tactical and my Para P-13 Limited a good workout(each 200rd reliabilty test). I had to beef up the recoil springs in both, but they both passed. Now I have to run 2 more test for my USP45CT and my newly acquired Wilson CQB.
