EFMJ provides higher energy, more reliable expansion, lower risk of collateral damage and reduced recoil vitally important features for a personal defense round.
Federal Premium Personal Defense HST Ammunition has been specially designed to deliver consistent, tremendous expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance. The specially designed hollow point will not plug while passing through a variety of barriers and the jacket and core hold together providing nearly 100% weight retention! This ammunition was engineered to meet or exceed FBI ammunition testing protocols; these protocols put bullets through 10% ordinance gelatin, steel, wallboard, plywood, laminated automobile safety glass and gelatin covered in heavy clothing and measure how well the bullets penetrate, expand and hold together.
Extensive testing has shown that the on average the 9mm Luger load will deliver 13.63" of penetration, 0.63" of expansion, 90% weight retention through all FBI barriers when shot through a Glock 17 at 10 feet.

Each round of ammunition is loaded into a Federal Premium nickel plated brass case with waterproofing on the case mouth and primer.

Every HST bullet features a tapered jacket profile for reliable feeding, a cannelure that locks the copper jacket to the lead core, patented co-aligned internal and external skiving and a deep tapered hollow point that will not clog.
