Details

Federal Tactical® HST offers consistent expansion and optimum penetration for terminal performance. Trusted my law enforcement across the country, HST is the premium duty ammunition that can make the difference when your livelyhood depends on it. 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.

Best place to buy for self defense ammo.

Review by BB

Great ammo and a great price from a great company. I buy all my self defense ammo from Streichers, much better pricing and quick shipping compared to buying retail boxes at a local store.

perfect self defense ammo for shooters with arthritis

Review by paul

I have reviewed the 147 gr hst in the past. It is the most accurate Self defense ammo I shoot. I have reviewed the 124 gr +P and while it is impressive, it is just too much for my old hands. So, this time, I ordered the 124 std pressure. It is quite accurate and for my condition much easier on my hands. Also, I tested it on a ham and it penetrated quite well, (9 inches) and also broke the bone . it left a big wound track and expanded perfectly. I highly recommend if you cannot take the wallop the the +p's deliver.

Excellent self defense ammo and a reliable company with quick shipping and good pricing

Review by JohndeFresno

Federal HST handgun ammo has proven, in independent test by police officers, not just at the manufacturers' labs, to best even the much respected Gold Dot projectiles, from 9mm and .357 through .45 calibers. They penetrate, hold together, expand impressively, avoid plugging up on clothing and obstacles, and are accurate. That leaves nothing to be desired. For self defense carry, the price of a box or two is worth it. This 147 grain 9mm HST round, in particular, outshines everything I've found for a short barreled "mini" 9mm - guns that use a 3 to 4 inch barrel - delivering its payload at around 950 fps true velocity and expanding upwards of .50 caliber. It functions flawlessly. The +P HST offering reportedly promises only about 50 fps more. I find it unnecessary; this ammo's standard recoil allows quick follow-up shots if necessary. I have abandoned my .38 snubbie for the S&W M&P Shield in this caliber, and am pleased at even 25 yard accuracy, as I am with other calibers using this outstanding brand. Streicher's is one of the few outlets that offers HST ammo regularly, always at a fair price with quick shipment.

Best company and best ammo.

Review by paul

Streichers is top notch. Fair prices, great service. And they actually have this in stock from time to time. When no one else does. When not in stock, go ahead and order for backorder. They will come through.

The ammo is simply the best. In my shield, the 147 standard is the most accurate jhp i shoot.

Highly recommend both the company and ammo

The hands down best personal defense ammo winner in the shootingthebull410 youtube assessments of over 30 brands. I am so glad to have it for my short barrel shield. It does take a while to get it because it is in such short demand,but,as i said it is well deserved. Price and service from Streichers is superb

Very good EDC round with proven effective HST bullet. Can't beat the 50-round box price at Streichers.

Review by Jim

I have ordered from Streichers in the past, been very pleased and will continue to order in the future. There was a wait for this order which I expected because it was listed as "backorderable". It was worth the wait because of the great price on 50-round boxes. This my EDC ammo and at this price I can shoot some of these for practice at the range. It's accurate in my M&P 9 C, it's clean burning and the bright nickel cases show up clearly in chambered round peek hole.

Best ammo, great fullfillment

Review by Luke

HSTs tend to cost more than other self-defense ammo, but when you can find this stuff in 9mm 147gr and 124gr standard pressures, it's the best there is.

The received my order, created a shipping label within two hours, and it left their facility the same day (only 3 hours before EOB hours). That's some REAL service.

Everything received was as expected. I'd order from these guys at Streichers again in a heartbeat.

Tops in it's class

Review by DrRoger

This round is 2nd only to Speer Gold Dot. HST is not bonded and I saw the copper jacket separate from the lead bullet which lessens stopping ability of a violent criminal charging at you. However it expanded to .55-.62 inch consistently. Streichers does their best to carry this in stock and their customer service is tops!

9MM Self defense ammo

Review by Jim the runner

Bought this ammo for self defense for my new 9mm Shield last November. Took just less than a year to get it, but as promised the order stayed active, and the price was honored. This ammo is impossible to get. It shot very well through my Shield, and I didn't even notice any additional kick. Immediately ordered some .380 ammo for my pocket pistol. This stuff has a great reputation.

Review by JR

There's a lot of ammo on the market. The Federal 9mm has been well designed from the ground up. 147 grain is somewhat slower than the 124 grainers, but I feel it's the best combination of expansion and penetration, and allows for very rapid fire. Quality control is excellent.

Great Ammunition

This ammunition allows for reliable expansion while also providing increased penetration due to the heavier weight of the bullet. Because of it's construction, it will allow a homeowner to effectively return fire if the "bad guy" is firing from cover of a car, door or furniture.
