If you own a subcompact revolver, you know they offer an ideal option when it comes to concealed carry. If they are paired with the right ammunition, of course. This Federal HST Micro .38 Special 130gr. JHP+P provides just what you are looking for.
The heavier bullet weight and lower velocity produces less recoil and the reduced noise you desire. The expanded diameter and increased weight retention produce the penetration you need. However, without allowing potentially dangerous over penetration necessary in a self-defense scenario. Plus, the combination of deeply tapered bullets, reliable Federal primers and a cannelure to lock jackets to core provide the reliability you depend on.
Federal’s HST Micro line of ammunition is specifically designed for use in subcompact revolvers in a self-defense scenario. This means you can achieve better function, deeper penetration and softer recoil in short barrel firearms. Just what you need to ensure your self-defense subcompact revolver will perform as desired when needed the most.
Every round of HST Micro features a tapered jacket for reliable feeding, cannelure locking jacket to lead core, a nickel-plated brad case with waterproofed case mouth & primer and boxer primer.
