In 2013, Federal Premium made law enforcement’s top duty round available to the public, creating the ultimate personal defense load: HST. This year, the product line is even stronger thanks to a new load in 380 Auto—an excellent option for concealed carry pistols. HST provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration, and terminal performance that raise the bar for micro-size handguns. Its specially designed hollow point won't plug, and the jacket and core hold together to provide almost 100-percent weight retention. The construction ensures micro-size handguns deliver the power needed for personal defense situations.
