Federal 150gr HST Micro, 9mm ammo

I had heard some things about this ammo, but I also heard it was very high priced! I am a fan of HST ammo and susceptible to felt recoil in these small pistols (Micro 9, Solo, Micro) The test conducted by the pros on the this ammo has pretty good results.

I found some of the 150 at a local Wal Mart, if you can believe it, for less than $23 a box. I got two boxes and went to the range obtaining mixed results in my Micro 9. The rounds are 1/16" longer, but by my estimates, produce less recoil.

I mention this as I think this stuff would be good in Solo's etc, and at the $23 cost, very cheap to shoot, compared to other things.

Wal Mart also had the 99 gr HST 380 Micro ammo at a good price!

I pay $19.99 for Federal HST LE 9mm Luger Ammo 147 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point all the time, I but it by the 1,000 so no shipping and no tax $399

Gotcha AZ, I suspect most users are like me and do not buy SD rounds in bulk though. Looks like a good idea. I like shooting paper with the same weight bullet as I carry so I use 124 NATO, and continue to carry 124 HST. I can hardly find any 147 in this area, and have stockpiled a lot of 115/124.

I wasn't awfully impressed with the 150, a couple of people asked if it was out there yet. I think the largest store in this area that would have the 150 is charging around $30. Whoaaaaaaa......
