is that a plastic insert in the hollowpoint?

I'd like to see a comparison to 124 gr. +p Gold Dots. They have expanded very well for me when I collected them. I'll have to post pics of them sometime.

Not in .45?! Lame. Looks good for 9mil though. Interested in how it stacks up with federal's hydrashock rounds :eek:

Too bad HST is limited for sale only to L.E.
Not true. They sell them in stores nowadays and they aren't even LE overruns.

I have HST's in 9mm, 45acp and 45gap and they are the BEST when it comes to expansion out of any guns I've tested them from.

I am not really impressed with these new Hornady bullets. I'll have to test them in 9mm and 45acp/gap (If they will have them 4sale).

Hornady TAP FPD / CQ 9mm I've tested and while it expanded ok, it did penetrate well and the temp wound channel was as big as a 45acp bullet, so it's got some punch.

The gun shops/stores don't carry HST locally where I am, even if they did, they said they could only sell to L.E. I looked at the HST specs and they are ok, but Magtech Guardian Gold is better, IMO, and hotter than HST. Going to have to wait for the Hornady's to be available to see how they are.

One local gun store stopped selling me Ranger 155gr 40's because I wasn't L.E.
