380 ACP FEDERAL PREMIUM PERSONAL DEFENSE 99 GRAIN HST JHP (20 ROUNDS)380 Auto pistols are quite popular for concealed carry due to their compact size and they become even more effective when combined with these high quality self defense rounds from Federal's Premium Personal Defense line. These jacketed hollow point rounds are known for their excellent wound channels and low muzzle flash in dark environments.
Federal has always been at the forefront of defense and law enforcement ammo technology with their well known Hi-Shok and Hydrashok products. The HST round is the next step in development and represents a combination of current cutting edge production methods and decades of experience with proven ballistic formulas and results.
The HST bullet design has a wide mouth hollow cavity which doesn't easily clog with clothing and is serrated almost halfway down the length of its copper jacket. This contributes to wide and reliable impact expansion even at the low velocities typically produced by short-barreled subcompact pistols. A toothed cannelure close to the base of the bullet secures the copper jacket to the lead core preventing material separation and preserving the momentum needed to penetrate past heavy layers of clothing and dense flesh.
The 99 grain bullets are on the heavier side for the .380 ACP caliber and not only help penetration but offer a slightly smoother recoil impulse in small pistols that are often harder to control due to light weight and smaller gripping surfaces. They are assembled using reloadable brass casings fitted with Boxer primers.
