Product News Offers Law Enforcement Ammo

ATK's Federal Tactical HST. Photo courtesy of offers a wide variety of ammunition in-stock from Federal, Hornady, Remington and Force-On-Force, according to the online distributor.

Federal Premium offers several different duty loads from the Federal Premium line in various calibers.

Tactical HST: Tactical HST is the newest addition to Federal ammunition offering consistent expansion and optimum penetration for terminal performance. Tactical HST is available in a bonded and non-bonded version.

Tactical Hydra-Shok: These loads remain a popular choice for accuracy and overall ballistic performance. The notched copper jacket controls penetration and a unique center-post hollow-point design provides controlled expansion and efficient energy transfer for incredible performance. This bonded round is a good choice for officers looking for consistent performance when shooting through intermediate barriers.

American Eagle: An affordable option for the range, designed for the high volume shooter with FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) bullets and top quality components. 

Hornady Tactical Application Police (TAP)

223 Rem TAP: These loads are a unique offering to law enforcement professionals, combining reliable functioning with consistent performance, low muzzle signature, and exceptional accuracy in 40-, 55-, 60- and 62-grain bullets and match accuracy in a 75-grain offering. These rounds provide enhanced terminal performance through rapid expansion and complete bullet fragmentation. Yet these highly effective bullets will penetrate soft body armor making them an excellent choice for patrol rifle programs and SWAT teams.

5.56 NATO: Many rifles chambered in 5.56 NATO are not realizing their full potential because they are shooting .223 Rem ammo. To get all the performance your 5.56 NATO can deliver, you need a Hornady high-octane 5.56 NATO load. Your 5.56 NATO-chambered rifle was designed to take advantage of the higher pressure of the 5.56 NATO cartridge, which translates to higher velocity, higher energy and harder-hitting performance.

308 Win TAP: This ammunition was specifically developed for the police marksman who requires the increased bullet weight and barrier penetration of the 308 Win cartridge. With a low muzzle signature and superior terminal performance, these loads provide a low risk of over-penetration due to enhanced expansion characteristics after target engagement. The polymer tips have high ballistic coefficients, making them an excellent choice for SWAT precision marksmen.


Golden Sabre HPJ (High Performance Jacket): At the heart of Golden Saber HPJ is a hollow-point bullet with a jacket made entirely of cartridge brass that releases energy over a longer distance. Unlike conventional hollow-point bullets, the jacket is nose cut completely through, promoting controlled expansion to well over 1.5 times the bullet's original diameter. The nose cuts are configured in a new, patented spiral pattern to produce larger petals and reduce the nose cavity for optimized performance.

Golden Saber HPJ rounds also feature Remington's "driving band" that locks the lead core to the jacket and reduces rifling contact friction for optimum muzzle velocity. Reduced bullet-nose diameter allows for precise bore alignment, producing match-grade accuracy not usually found with hollow point ammunition.

Golden Saber HPJ is available in .380, 9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.


The enhanced ATK/Federal Force-on-Force rounds are state-of-the-art. These marker rounds boast superior performance, distinct marking and reliable ballistics. These rounds are lead free and thus safer for indoor use, environmentally friendly and prevent lead contamination and expensive cleanup. By eliminating the use of powder as a propellant, the mess is reduced and there is significantly less barrel fouling.
