    I sent an E mail tp Federals LE rep about the XM40HC and this is what I was told.. There are basically 3 differences between the P40HST1 and the XM40HC:
    1.. Velocity
    P40HST1 990-1025 FPS
    Xm40HC 1015 +/- 16 FPS
    2.. Muzzel Energy
    P40HST1 406 ft lbs
    XM40HC 410 ft. lbs
    3.. Bullet Push
    P40HST1 80lb min
    XM40HC 70 lb min
    He stated this ammunition was made for a customer, whether it was Military or Police was not specified. The ammunition that is available is the excess that was not purchased from the original order and made availabe for sale. It is HST. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. Sure shoots holes in the "factory seconds" theory.

    Hopefuly were done with this eh?

    I think after 4 pages of conjecture punctuated with facts, we should be done. Not seconds, XM does not always mean second class ammo, it is HST, its brass cased by design rather than nickle, the easter bunny is a myth, 45 still is bigger than 9, and we should be done now............

    Extra info

    Hey guys,

    As my name implies, I am an M&P9 owner, but I also own an XD40SC.
    I picked up a special deal at my local dealer for 250 rounds of XMH40C for $100. After reading this thread, I thought "oh crap, probably just wasted $100 on crap ammo". Well, to make sure I didn't, I emailed Federal, asking about exactly what this product was. Here is their response:

    Dear Customer:

    The XM portion designates it is a government contract round, the H means it is an HST bullet and the C designates the bullet weight (A, B, C for 155, 165, 180).

    Thanks
    Federal
    So just thought I'd pass that on. This ammo is legit.

    With all due respect, you didn't read it very well. :)

    There was a letter from Federal in post number 31 that CLEARLY explained what the ammo is.
