Federal Federal .40 S&W Handgun Ammunition

The stopping power of precision-designed hollow-point bullets teamed with unbeatable accuracy. This ammo is the choice of top law enforcement and government agencies. These rounds are topped with a 180-gr. JHP bullet, designed specifically for law enforcement, and are capable of producing 1.5" five shot groups at 25 yards. All have a water-resistant case seal and are visually inspected before packaging. Per 50.

HST

Date:January 8, 2009
Federal's XM40HB in the silver box are topped with the company's high-tech HST bullets in 155 grain. ICE and the Border Patrol issue it as their duty round. The box just doesn't advertise it. Federal sells the same bullet in 180 grain on their P40HST1 rounds. The main differences are weight, cartridge color and type of box they come in.

Great Ammo!

Date:January 5, 2009
Cycles great. No failures. Great expansion and low flash. Performs as advertised. Kind of high priced but I got what I paid for. No complaints.

Federal .40 S&W Handgun Ammunition

Date:January 5, 2009
This is Federal Premium Law Enforcement .40 S&W 155 gr. Tactical® HST® #P40HST2
"The next generation in high performance duty ammunition. HST® (Hydra-Shok Tactical®) 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. HST is engineered to provide 100% weight retention through most barriers and impressive expansion."
Looking forward to testing this on the range for reliability and point of impact. Reasonable price on sale.

Federal .40 S&W Handgun Ammunition

Date:December 29, 2008
Federal makes some of the best ammunition around. But, this particular round has such a rugged hollow point, that the jacket occasionally catches and jams while feeding if the gun isn't oiled properly.
But, this ammo does leave a devistating exit hole and does a lot of damage for the money.

"Tactical" Hydra Shock?

Date:December 24, 2008
I just received my order and also found out that it is not loaded with a Hydra Shock bullett, no center post that would be a true Hydra Shock design. I does have a large hollow point that will simulate function and feeding of a normal Hydra Shock bullett. These days still a good buy for what appears to be quality ammo.

This is not Hydra-Shock ammo

Date:December 19, 2008
So that you know before you purchase this product. These rounds are NOT Hydra Shock bullets as Cabelas advertises but merely Fedral's JHP bullet. You can tell the difference because the "post" is not in these rounds like the Hydra Shock bullets do. I just bought 5 boxes from them. However, I beleive this is still a good round at a good price so I will be keeping them.
