Federal HST is the best defensive ammo on the market, full stop.

Feeds well. Quiet in a suppressor. Effective expansion combined with good penetration in every platform you're likely to run it in.

Now why'd you have to go and do this? I'm working hard on a funds preservation project, but I also love a bargain. And shooting guns. So, so much...

AHHH!!!

I haven't read the fine print, but it looks like there also a rebate available, up to $50.

 

Federal rebate R10014

EDIT: It looks like the price is available on any quantity of 50 round boxes, but free shipping only applies to case purchases.

You better hope you get that rebate. I got screwed out of half of mine on their 5.56 rebate back in the spring. No more federal for me.

The 147 gr 9mm HST is hand's down the most accurate factory ammo I've ever fired. 

I confidently carry it in all of my 9mm's.

And it's functional street record is beyond reproach. And it carries Doc GKR's seal of approval.

Thankfully I have a "few" boxes of it sitting downstairs. ;)

I just tried it and it was 799.80 for a case. 

Yeah,  it was a great deal while the sale lasted. 

The $799.00/1K is in the same ballpark as other sites I frequent. 

It looks like Bone Frog is now restricting sales. That sucks as they've always had great prices in the past. Iirc we had a discussion about that in relation to the 50 round vs 20 round boxes in the recent past.

There's a few sites (SGAmmo for one) stating they are having delayed shipping because of increased orders... looks like folks are taking advantage of the unimpeded availability. Might be prudent considering the current political climate. I'm not encouraging a panic run or anything.  Hopefully folks have taken advantage of the incredibly low pricing already this year.

That was the carry ammo we used @ Trousdale Co. Sheriffs Dept. when I was there. I still carry it in my PDW. Good stuff.

GT Distributors has a good sale on this right now. Around $20/50 box for 9MM, around $25 for .40S&W, .45ACP.

I think they also have a store in the Chattanooga area. I don’t know if this sale is online only or not.

There's going to come a day when you can't get this stuff anymore and you'll wish you had stocked up back in the day.

Just sayin'...

Checked out the options on the HST and noticed that you are required to be either an active LEO or a Law Enforcement Agency.    They ask you to check one of the boxes.    Being the law abiding citizen that I am, I guess that disqualifies me to purchase.

You are correct; sorry about that.

https://www.targetsportsusa.com puts it on sale every once in awhile at these prices and allows us lowly citizens to buy it.

GT Distributors sent me the email; I made the incorrect assumption they wanted my business.

I appreciate it when you post these sales.  I was able to buy a case a couple of weeks ago when you posted the TargetUSA sale.

      Got tired of staring at the thing...they are surprisingly easy to shoot without a brace and woo-wee what a fireball...but the triggers suck...tons of phillips screws look dumb, and lets just face it having a brace makes aiming easier...however one huge advantage to these is weight...3.4lbs stock....I still need to weigh it but even with the added kit I think im still at 5lbs or less....I got some other plans for later but im happy with its direction.

      Well, after building the 1892 Winchester in 357, I guess I got horned into 357 and just had to finally spring for a nice wheel gun. My taste is in S&W but I want a nice handling range gun and the K frame is just right as not being too heavy. Besides I carried a M10 S&W as a duty gun for 18 years and became fond of my qualifying scores with that action. Problem is, I think S&W has been giving the shooting public the screws on their K frame magnums for a very long time. Frame cutting, and burned throats aside, That I can understand but I draw the line at poor barrel shank design. Iv seen a few K's with bore bulges just forward the barrel shank threads inside the frame mouth. Its ugly and should not happen. Reason being, they stop the barrel treads into a "root diameter" opening cut of the shank rather than stopping the threads into thread OD. Taurus correctly decided long ago that they would correct this deficiency and that is one main reason why I bought a 669 rather than a 66 S&W aside from the $$$ difference. The barrel cylinder gap on the Taurus is perfect at .004. It needs a trigger job and a forcing cone hone that I figured would be needed but all in all, this particular Taurus 357 is going to be a very sweet shooter. Its a bit beefier in the frame than a S&W 66 and the finish is exceptional for the 5 bones even OTD on a GB purchase.

      Well, kind of a review, bearing in mind I've only owned the thing for (checks calendar...) 5hrs & 5 minutes.
      First impressions: It's a mini Vaquero! Fit & finish is far better than I expected actually. Joint to joint finish is very tight, although there are a few rounded corners, making it look more 'gappy' than it really is. The grips are perfect fit for the frame & are significantly nicer than those on the Blackhawk or vaquero. Yes, they're plastic, but the checkering is crisp & sharp. It feels very familiar to my hand. Like my 1860 Army. It points just as well too. The sights line up instinctively as soon as it's brought to bear. The MIM hammer has a little patch of very grippy checkering (Like the Blackhawk) making strong or support hand, thumb cocking a breeze. The trigger is rough. It has a pretty long, gritty take up & as it comes heavy break weight. I'd estimate pull weight at around 7-8lb. For a single action, that's just horrible. That said, there is a super simple mod that can be done with no permanent alterations to all Ruger single actions. Pop off a grip plate & drop one leg of the trigger spring of it's post. Instantly reduces weight by 50%. I worked the hammer & trigger a couple hundred times before shooting it & the grittiness went away, although the pre travel remains. It's 1000 times better than it was though & The break itself is very clean with minimal over travel. I also gave all the twiddly expensive bits a drop of oil & greased up the hammer strut. This reduces the cocking effort significantly. The hammer strut rides through a thin steel plate at the bottom of the grip & THAT'S the part that Ruger decided needed minimal tolerance. They bind on occasion. The best solution is to open up the hole a wee bit, but that's not really a fair thing to do before a test/review. Let's be honest, 99.9% of folks won't do it, so I slapped on some lithium grease instead.
      To the shooty bit.....
      Testing parameters:
      I'm working on the theory here that since this is a really cheap pistol, 99% of buyers are going to use it purely for plinking & occasional target use, but certainly not competition (CAS/SASS stuff aside) bullseye shooting. This being my train of thought, I didn't bother even trying any quality ammunition. No Eley, no Lapua. Only cheap, readily available bulk.....crap to be fair.
      I shot indoors, at Templar Shooting Sports range here in Tullahoma ($20+tax per lane) so wind & atmospheric variables could be avoided. Ruger state in their blurb that the sight is regulated at 15yds, so that's the distance I shot at. Shooting was done from a rested, seated position from a Caldwell sand bag. 2 full cylinders (12 shot groups) were fired at each target & the groups measured at the end of testing. The target wasn't moved during grouping.
       
      Ammunition tested:
      Aguila Super Extra 40gn solid
      Federal Target Grade 40gn solid
      Remington Golden bullet 38gn HP
      Federal Black Pack 36gn HP
      *Winchester Super X 37gn HP
       
      I had no ammunition failures, nothing shot or sounded 'weak' (common with bulk) or 'hot'. Not one single mechanical issue with the pistol at all in 125 rounds fired. I fired 3 full cylinders of blind-loaded mixed bag ammo to ensure hitting paper at 15yds & to ensure the cylinder & barrel were good & dirty before I began the accuracy portion. 
       
      The targets:
      Aguila 40gn....
