FEDERAL P9HST2 - 9mm 147 gr HST JHP

This cartridge and a modified version of the Speer G2 have been chosen by the FBI as their duty rounds of the future. The Speer G2 was modified to allow for better expansion and this cartridge was recently modified to optimize barrier penetration.

This is the recommended practice round for Federal Tactical HST 9mm 147gr Hollow Points: American Eagle AE9FP

Federal LE HST 9mm handgun ammunition is designed to deliver the high performance today's law enforcement officers demand. Each HST bullet is individually engineered to provide shot-to-shot uniformity and ensure optimum performance when fired through a variety of barriers. The result is a cartridge that provides officers the ultimate defense in lethal force confrontations.

"The Fed HST line is among the best duty loads currently available for service caliber pistols. HST’s tend to work best using heavier bullets ( 147 gr, 180 gr, 230 gr ) at moderate velocities, with standard pressures." Dr. Gary Roberts

"FWIW, many of the largest west coast LE agencies have been using 147 gr for two decades without any issues, same with the FBI..." Dr. Gary Roberts

"The FBI currently issues a 147 gr and previously issued 147 gr going back the last quarter century or so, as noted above..." Dr. Gary Roberts

"I am currently carrying Fed 147 gr HST and like the Speer 124 gr +P as well." Dr. Gary Roberts

"Winchester Ranger Talon had been used around here for over a decade with superb OIS incident results. Unfortunately, in 2008, Winchester was unable to deliver the quantity of ammo needed in the required time frame; the Federal HST met the bid requirements and was immediately available. For what it's worth, since the change over, the currently issued HST (P9HST2, P40HST1, P45HST1/P45HST2) has performed at least as well in OIS incidents as the previously issued Ranger Talon (RA9T, RA40T, RA45TP/RA45T)." Dr. Gary Roberts

Velocity means nothing with the new generation ammo. It relies on design to expand not velocity.

"Whatever you choose, make sure you fire at least 500 and preferably 1000 failure free shots through your pistol prior to carrying it. If your pistol cannot fire at least 1000 consecutive shots without a malfunction, something is wrong and it is not suitable for duty/self-defense use." Dr. Gary Roberts in pistol-forum.com

"Purchase a consistent, robust performing duty/self-defense load in sufficient quantities (at least 1000 rounds) then STOP worrying about the nuances of handgun ammunition terminal performance." Dr. Gary Roberts

"Bullet designs like the Silver Tip, Hydra-Shok, and Black Talon were state of the art 15 or 20 years ago. These older bullets tend to plug up and act like FMJ projectiles when shot through heavy clothing; they also often have significant degradation in terminal performance after first passing through intermediate barriers. Modern ammunition which has been designed for robust expansion against clothing and intermediate barriers is significantly superior to the older designs. The bullets in the Federal Classic and Hydrashok line are outperformed by other ATK products such as the Federal Tactical and HST, as well as the Speer Gold Dot; likewise Winchester Ranger Talons are far superior to the old Black Talons or civilian SXT's."
