    I do not! Last Saturday, I almost purchased a G36 and 500 rounds of Winchester 230 gr FMJ from Atlantic Tactical. AT only sells to LEO and military. Since I'm a disabled vet I'm eligible. Their prices are fair and if you purchase 500 rounds they take another $1 off per box. I did purchase 1000 rounds of Winchester 9 mm :)

    According to Federals LE web sit the specs for the Tactical Bonded are the same as for the HST. I thought about buying some but it was way to expensive so I never did shoot any, I stayed with the HST. I think for civilian use since you probably are less likely to shoot through barriers, windshields or car doors, bonded is not needed. I have heard that some of the bonded ammo doesnt expand as readily as other hollow point ammunition in softer targets but thats only something I had heard and read about, I dont know how true it is. I also dont know if that would be true for the Federal Tactical Bonded. Since the HST does not appear to shed its jacket, has good penetration and expansion I stayed with that round.

    It looks like not many people use or have used Federal Tactical Bonded ammo

    I have a few boxes of HST's that are labeled LE. I'm not sure if it's the same.

    No, it is not the same. The Tactical is bonded, while the HST is not. How do you like the HST?

    I like them. I switched from Hydra Shoks to HST's about a year ago and have had good performance out of both my M&P 45 and 1911.
    Other than the price, I think their good to go.

    Also, I wasn't looking for LE rounds, but when I received my order, I noticed they said "For LE use only"
