Loaded for respectable velocity, Federal’s 200-grain HST self-defense ammo should prove potent.
How Does The 10mm HST Measure Up As A Self-Defense Round:
- 1,130 factory-recorded muzzle velocity.
- Reliably expands even when passing trough a variety of barriers.
- Superior weight retention and excellent penetration.
- Superior performance in FBI test protocol.
It’s already proved a busy year for Federal Premium Ammunition. Early in the year, the company expanded its Hydra-Shok line with the additions of .40 S&W and .45 ACP loads. Now, it’s turned its sights on its premium and fairly acclaimed line of HST ammunition. And this expansion is a doozy, especially if you’re a fan of Col. Jeff Cooper’s little gem.
Federal is adding a 200-grain 10mm load to the hollow point ammunition line, and it boasts some respectable ballistics. With a factory-recorded muzzle velocity of 1,130 fps, the round should live up to Federal’s assertion it performed well all FBI Protocol tests. According to the company, the first stock has shipped to dealers. Presently, it has an MSRP of $34.95 for a box of 20.
ANOKA, Minnesota — Federal has combined the ultimate self-defense bullet and cartridge in its new Federal Premium 10mm Auto HST load. Shipments have been delivered to dealers.
