Shooting’s biggest cartridge introduction in decades is getting off to a powerful start with Federal Premium HST. Federal’s all-new 30 Super Carry bridges the largest performance gap in handgun self-defense.

The proven HST bullet design gets even more from the cartridge, driving even deeper penetration and larger expansion.
