    Federal HST - What weight?

    I'll be changing out my 135gr .40 S & W Hydrashoks for the HSTs.

    What weight do you use and why? There seems to be 155gr, 165gr and 180gr.

    I would go with the 165gr myself.

    The 165gr seems to have the highest ft lbs of energy. Is that why?

    Use the heaviest weight offered in your caliber
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    I actually just ordered the 165 gr since it was only second in ft lbs of energy to the 357 Sig.

    I even ordered an extra box for a friend since shipping was only $1 more.

    Thanks all.
