Federal Premium is exactly that - PREMIUM. Federal Premium especially the HST loads, out perform ALL known standards. Which is exactly why your local department, the FBI and probably your friends in the CCW community all have these rounds loaded in their mags.
You roll the dice everyday no matter what your doing. Will the car start? Is traffic going to bad? No matter what it is, your rolling the dice. The one thing you can be fully assured of is that the Federal Premium in your tool of last resort will NOT fail you.
Whether for daily carry (CCW) or on duty, only the most proven and reliable ammunition is acceptable. Failure is never an option. To be classified as Defensive Ammunition it must meet or exceed FBI requirements and do so consistantly.
