    HST and Glocks

    I have carried Hydrashoks for as long as I can remember. After doing some research on other ammo offerings I finally decided on the Tactical HST from Federal. It wasn't easy to find, most places were out of stock, but I ordered two boxes. I have read that some guns won't feed the HST stuff properly. Can anyone tell me if Glock's are known to have problems with them? I will of course put one box through my pistol when they arrive, but I am interested as to what others have expierenced.
    Thanks

    Most Glocks will feed just about anything you put in them, that is why I trust my G26.

    I had a Kahr P9 once that used to balk on a few JHP brands of ammo, so it is important to at least run a box of your new carry round through your pistol to test functionality.
    God bless our troops!

    My G19 and G26 have no problems feeding HSTs.

    +1 Yes, these guys are great. I've bought a bunch of HST both 9mm and .45 from them. Great prices and fast shipping.

    Sorry G23 180 grain HST.

    Actually I did and they were who I ordered from. They were one of the few places that had them. They don't have much competition. I just wish they had the Buffalo Bore 380 GD's as I was looking for one place that carried both rounds to avoid to seperate shipping costs. Never could find a source so I ordered from two different places.

    My G36 eats anything I feed it, including Federal HSTs.

    My Kimber, OTOH, doesn't feed HST rounds reliably. It'll feed Speer GDHPs with no problem, but the wide throat of the HST causes misfeeds.

    My G30 and the wife's G26 both feed the HST with no problem. In fact, I have used everything from HST's, Gold Dots, Remington Golden Sabers, Rainier plated HP's, Winchester HP's, and of course several different brands of FMJ/RN bullets and a variety of handloads through both Glocks with zero problems. +1 on ammotogo, good prices, fast delivery. Their price on the 50 rnd HST's is less than my local shops price on 25 HST's.

    Let us know how you like the HST when you do get them. Post pics if you can. I always like looking at HST flowers
