Details

Federal Tactical HST 45 ACP handgun ammunition is the next generation in high performance duty ammunition. HST® offers consistent expansion and optimum penetration for terminal performance. A specially designed hollow-point tip won't plug while passing through a variety of barriers and this bullet holds its jacket in the toughest conditions. HST is engineered to provide 100% weight retention through most barriers and impressive expansion.

In order to meet the demand of Law Enforcement, all individual Federal HST loads are limited to 20 boxes per order. Any orders received exceeding 20 boxes will be cancelled.

I carry this for self defense based on it's reputation to perform.

Review by Bill

I bought this on it's reputation to perform on the street. Thankfully I've never had to use it against someone, and hope I never do. Again, I carry this based on it's reputation., but it's all I carry.

Best ammo in the best caliber

Review by J

This particular +P .45 acp ammo is simply the best shot you can take. No handgun round is a sure thing, but there is a tremendous amount of energy in this product. Not recommended for light .45s or short-barreled weapons. Time for second shot would be too great. So-so for barrier penetration, best to alternate with flat-point hardball.

An Excellent, Superb Round

Review by NoVA Guy

This is an outstanding .45 ACP round for either duty carry or personal defense in terms of reliability, accuracy, expansion, barrier and overall penetration, and easy to manage recoil. I see no need to go the +P version for this round. I have had zero feed issues in a personal Dan Wesson Valor 1911 and zero issues with a Glock 21 Gen4. The entire HST line offers outstanding performance.

Perfect Performance

Review by SammColt45

The Federal HST ammo is one of the best premium self-defense rounds ever. It is clean, accurate, very reasonably priced (from Streichers, at least), and, in my own testing, they expand perfectly and do not over penetrate. I prefer the +P version, but the standard velocity is certainly more than adequate.

Review by CharleyX

I shot one of these in a .45 ACP through three one gallon plastic milk jugs filled with water. Lined up, of course. The first two jugs exploded. The last was split open. I found the bullet in the sand beyond. It had a beautiful blossom and looked complete. The jacket was intact. It had expanded to about a sixteenth of an inch shy of completely covering a quarter (coin). Federal HSTs work a

Federal HST 45 230 +P

Review by DS

Fed flawlessly through my HK45, accurate, and surprisingly low recoil. Fired back to back the HST +P recoil was no more noticeable than Ranger 45 standard 230. Given the price and availability of SD/Tactical 45 ACP, this is a good value and I will buy more.

I've heard only great things concerning HSTs. I haven't shot these yet due to an achilles tendon injury; but I'm glad that I have them in stock and can't wait to try them out. I will try them in a Kimber Custome II Target, Beretta PX4 Storm, and a Taurus pt145.

Review by zoellnerone

Excellent Self Defense ammunition. I have tested it in several 1911's that I have and never had a FTF or a Mis-fire with any of them. I also shoot HST in my 9mm's and have had ZERO issues with it in any of them.

HST is priced much more affordably then most Premium Self Defense ammunition allowing me to practice more often then I could afford to with other Premium Self Defense ammo.

HST2

Review by bgdawgrr

Using and carrying both the HST1 and HST2 rounds in .45ACP, I find the standard load performance, accuracy and recoil superior to the +P HST1. Felt recoil is less in the HST2 round with very comparable ballistics.
For cold winter months in the NW, I will rotate to the HST1 for the higher velocities and improved penetration.

Review by SammColt45

I use this ammo for my personal carry 1911s. It performs best in the full-size models, but I have used it in a Colt Officer's model and a Para Ordnance P-12 with satisfactory results. It is clean burning and accurate for +P ammo. Muzzle flash is moderate in the full-size 1911. Reliability is perfect. The only drawback is the very limited availability. Hopefully Federal will get caught up wit

Review by Tally XD45

Reliable, accurate, good penetration with awesome expansion and great penetration through hard objects like plywood. Affordable price for premium ammunition that actually works in most all situations. Federal Cartridge tries to limit this ammo to law enforcement. For what reason I do not know. These rounds are dependable, work like hollow points are designed to work and are ballistically superior
