p.s. whats hst stand for?
Never carry a round you haven't tested in your pistol unless you run out....only don't run out. At any range exercise I always leave two mags full of my carry load in the console and don't even take them onto the firing line. That way I don't run out.
I use Federal Hydra Shok in all of my SD handguns and will for many years to come. Why? I bought 1K rounds each of .380, .38 and .40 cal at auction in 2008 for $0.41 per round.
Speer Gold dot on duty and off duty.
I started out with either Gold Dots or Hydra-Shoks. Now I run Winchester PDX1 in everything from the .380's to the AR. It seems to perform as well or better than the others and I can get it in the store with a 10% discount.
