Federal Personal Defense HST Nickel Plated Brass .45 ACP 230 Grain 20-Rounds HSTJSP
Personal Defense HST Features
Effective self-defense requires ammunition that provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance. And HST delivers. That’s why it’s already the duty load of choice for law enforcement officers throughout the world. Its specially designed hollow point won’t plug while passing through a variety of barriers, and the bullet jacket and core hold together to provide nearly 100 percent weight retention through even the toughest materials.

Winchester primers come in WSP, WLP, WSR, and WLR flavors – small pistol, large pistol, small rifle and large rifle. They use the same primer for standard and magnum loads, which in essence means they are all magnum primers, and they act that way on a chronograph, with larger standard deviation in velocity than I get with a standard primer from CCI.
My preference in primers for standard loads is CCI, and generally speaking in a good load I can get standard deviations in velocity in the high single digits or low teens, where the same load may have and SD of 25-30 with a Winchester primer.
I’ve had good luck using CCI primers. From what I understand CCI benchrest primers are usually easier to ignite than their regular, magnum and military style primers. And the military and magnum primers need a harder strike to ignite.
I had my best groups at 100 yards using CCI BR primers in my AR-15 in 5.56. However, I don’t recommend using them in an AR because they would be the ones most likely to slam fire.
Never had a misfire or slam fire with either the CCI #41 or BR in the AR. Remington Small Rifle Bench Primers #7-1/2 Box of 1000
