Federal Premium Personal Defense HST 380 Auto Load

Federal Premium Expands Personal Defense HST Lineup with 380 Auto Load

The Federal Premium HST load features a jacket and core that hold together to provide almost 100 percent weight retention.

Federal Premium made its HST Personal Defense load available to the public in 2013 to the delight of firearms enthusiasts around the country.

Now, the company has expanded its HST Personal Defense line to include 380 Auto.

HST ammunition 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.

HST 99-grain bullet’s exclusive design delivers best-in-caliber expansion, outperforming all other leading factory brands in 380 Auto. The result is full-size terminal performance from a compact platform.

Performance tests were based on bullet and crush cavity diameters versus competition; tested with a micro handgun in 380 Auto with a 2.75-inch barrel fired into 10 percent ballistics gelatin at 10 feet.
