“Law enforcement and federal agencies put it all on the line for our safety and freedoms. They should expect nothing less from their ammunition,” said Mike Holm, product director at Federal Premium. “Federal Premium provides the top-quality products they need to have full confidence in any situation. HST has a long history of providing trusted performance time and time again for our nation’s law enforcement.”
Federal will supply up to 180 million rounds of .40-caliber Tactical HST duty and training ammunition to multiple Department of Homeland Security law enforcement agencies over the course of the contract.
HST has been a popular choice for various law enforcement agencies in recent years, and the ammunition is noted for providing good penetration, with little worry of over-penetration.
The ammunition offers a nickel-plated case and clean-burning propellants that improved function and reliability in semi-automatic handguns.
