    I just checked today...I found out that Ammunition to Go has has HST in stock, at least in 9mm and 45 ACP (the two calibers I need). They had 9mm HST in 124+p and 147, and they had 45 ACP HST in 230+p. If anyone needs it, I'd suggest ordering some before its gone...

    I'm sure I'll feel stupid for asking once I get your answer, but what is "HST"? I can't view Ammo to Go from work. :(

    Thanks,

    Pete

    It's the Federal Hydra-shok tactical. the 50rd box that says Law Enforcement Ammunition on it. Lemme dig out a photo of the box for you.


    EDIT: Here you go

    and the blurb from ammunitiontogo.com:

    This is 45 ACP Federal Law Enforcement Tactical HST 230gr. +P Hollow Point Ammo. This is the next generation in high performance Defense ammunition. The Tactical HST Hollow Point Ammo offers consistent expansion and optimum penetration for terminal performance. A specially designed hollow point tip won’t plug while passing through a variety of barriers and this bullet holds its jacket in the toughest conditions. The HST Hollow Point is engineered for 100% weight retention and extremely impressive expansion—it’s the ammunition you’ve been waiting for. Typically this ammo is only available to law enforcement and military agencies through Federal, that is a Federal rule, not a law. We got this ammo, because we ordered it for a police department and they cancelled the order, so we can now sell it to anyone. This ammo is extremely hard for us to get and we have limited supplies. This is current production ammo and it is packed in 50rd. boxes, 1000rds. per case. This ammo is IN STOCK at this time.

    They have it for 28.95 + shipping which has always been reasonable to me, but they are in Brehnam, TX so you have to pay sales tax. They are not allowing walk-ins at their shop unless you have called ahead and have a rather large order to pick up. They also run about 10 days to get your product to you. Can you tell I've dealt with them once or twice?:happy0001:

    Provided you know the secret handshake, and your professional references check out, 6-8 weeks later you will happen to find an anonymous package slipped through your mail slot by a mysterious individual that looks strangely like the Extreme Shock tacti-cool ninjas (but he is really with Federal, I didn't say that). All you will care about is that you will have God's gift in your hands. lol j/k In all seriousness though, Federal HST is good stuff. It seems to have decent ballistics and, judging by all of the ballistics tests I've seen, it has pretty consistent expansion as well.
