Federal Ammunition Announces New Personal Defense HST Loads

Federal Ammunition announces new line options to the HST product family with the addition of Personal Defense HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum. Continuing to build off an already extensive line of personal defense ammunition options, the addition of these magnum loads gives users a reliable and effective personal defense option for revolvers: Personal Defense HST | Federal Premium.

“When it comes to choosing a caliber for personal defense, the 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum continues to be popular choices,” said Federal Ammunition Handgun Product Director, Nick Sachse. “A big reason for the continued popularity of these calibers is the preference to carry a revolver for everyday carry. We are excited to add these new loads to the already proven line of HST Personal Defense handgun ammunition.”

Reliability is key especially when it comes to choosing self-defense ammo. To remove any doubts of performance, the HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum boast a nickel-plated case for long-term corrosion resistance. The high-performance primer and primer seal ensures consistent ignition when it is needed most.

“Users that want to carry a magnum caliber for personal defense, want to utilize the full benefit of them. The specially engineered 104-grain 327 Federal Magnum and 154-grain 357 Magnum HST Jacketed Hollow Points were designed to take full advantage of magnum cartridges with consistent terminal performance,” continued Sachse. “From a terminal performance standpoint, these magnum cartridges provide energy that allows for both excellent penetration and expansion. And like all HST bullets, this performance can be relied on through heavy clothing.”

The HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum join an already proven line of Personal Defense HST products that include 30 Super Carry, 9mm Luger, 9mm Luger +P, 357 SIG, 40 S&W, 10mm Auto, 45 Auto, and 45 Auto +P.
