U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Federal Ammunition announces new line options to the HST product family with the addition of Personal Defense HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum. Continuing to build off an already extensive line of personal defense ammunition options, the addition of these magnum loads gives users a reliable and effective personal defense option for revolvers.

“When it comes to choosing a caliber for personal defense, the 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum continue to be popular choices,” said Federal Ammunition Handgun Product Director, Mike Holm. “A big reason for the continued popularity of these calibers is the preference to carry a revolver for everyday carry. We are excited to add these new loads to the already proven line of HST Personal Defense handgun ammunition.”

Reliability is key especially when it comes to choosing self-defense ammo. To remove any doubts of performance, the HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum boast a nickel-plated case for long-term corrosion resistance. The high-performance primer ensures consistent ignition when it is needed most.

“Users that want to carry a magnum caliber for personal defense, want to utilize the full benefit of them. The specially engineered 104-grain 327 Federal Magnum and 154-grain 357 Magnum HST Jacketed Hollow Points were designed to take full advantage of magnum cartridges with consistent terminal performance,” continued Holm.” The bullet still has to perform well in personal defense scenarios. This is why the HST JHP was built to pass through a variety of materials without plugging up. The bullet jacket and core hold together to provide nearly 100-percent weight retention through common defensive barriers.”

The HST 357 Magnum and 327 Federal Magnum join an already proven line of Personal Defense HST products that include 30 Super Carry, 9mm Luger, 9mm Luger +P, 357 SIG, 40 S&W, 10mm Auto, 45 Auto, and 45 Auto +P.

MSRP $42.99 & $37.99 for .357 & .327.
Product reviews and announcements are useless without prices.


No price shown. Probably a 300% markup. funny how they go on about reliability in this NEW LINE of ammo I cannot remember a-n-y .357 round NOT going off in any weapon I have in this caliber. The ONLY difference in this ammo is a newly designed bullet, which in reality doesn’t cost much, if any more, than their other bullets. So why the normal 50 round price for a box of 20 ? Same case, primer, powder, machinery that have been around since 1935. Just a NEW bullet with an eye grabbing “HST” sales gimmick moniker, made with the… Read more »

I’ve got 100 gr. Gold Dots for the 4″ SP101 and 75 gr. Barnes from Double Tap for the LCR. I’m in no hurry.


WHERE is the 44magnum ammunition?!?!?!?!

Nothing more than a press release that is notable for saying nothing about availability or pricing. The Federal website does not mention the new HST cartridge under its .327 Federal Magnum listings, not even to announce it as a new product. Query to Ammoland: how about a little journalism here.
