U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently awarded Federal Premium a major ammunition contract. Starting delivery in 2018, the contract provides for up to 180 million rounds of .40 caliber Tactical HST duty ammunition to multiple Department of Homeland Security law enforcement components and other federal agencies for up to five years. This contract will provide the organization’s agents and officers with .40 caliber duty and training ammunition.
This contract will provide the organization’s agents and officers with the legendary performance that has made HST a dependable and popular choice with law enforcement worldwide for two decades, Federal Premium says.
“Law enforcement and federal agencies put it all on the line for our safety and freedoms. They should expect nothing less from their ammunition,” said Mike Holm, product director at Federal Premium. “Federal Premium provides the top-quality products they need to have full confidence in any situation. HST has a long history of providing trusted performance time and time again for our nation’s law enforcement.”
HST’s expanded diameter and weight retention produce the desired penetration without over-penetrating. Its bullet nose profile, nickel-plated case, Federal primer, and clean-burning, low-flash propellants provide the ultimate in function and reliability in semi-automatic handguns, the company says.
