Rated 5 out of 5 by GumpFire from Please keep secretDeep Penetration, excellent expansion a cut above other defense rounds yet at such a reasonable price thru sportsmanguide as Normal, The secret is this ammo is sold for much more anywhere else, and is rapidly becoming popular, even for many police departments across our country, but i could not keep secret to my fellow sportsmanguide members, so i guess buy it while it is in stock, the secret will not last long

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ducky from Excellent price, Delivered in three days!!Just received delivery this afternoon, so have not tried them out yet. Have been using Federal ammunition since I was a teenager(1960s), and have never had any issues. Package arrived in excellent shape and boxes were secured expertly, as usual for Sportsman's Guide. One issue, But it was with Federal. The ammo was in 20 round plastic boxes that must have been designed to be child proof. I remember reading a review sometime ago complaining about the plastic boxes and all I can say is AMEN to that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HamHands from Feeds, penetrates, & expands well, hits hard!This ammo is my go to for my every day carry, a CZ P-01 9mm... With Federal's 147gr standard pressure HST, they are easy recoiling, always feed, and expand to .60 Plus caliber every time... This round from a 3.75" barrel always punches the steel popper plates with authority and have expanded every time in our informal wet pack media test and also water jug tests... HST's in their respective "Heavy For Caliber" loadings all perform well in 147gr (9mm,) 180gr (.40Cal), and 230gr (.45ACP's)... By well, I mean hit the steel hard, reliably feed, (CZ's, M&P's & 1911's), and expand consistently in the aforementioned "informal" test media above. The larger the caliber the larger the round expands in tests media... albeit all with mostly similar penetration... Gold Dots have been the bechmark in years past and are still a formidable choice; I have a rather large stock of them ... However, in my opinion, Federal has raised the bar just a bit with their HST line... YMMV...
