Federal HST Micro 130gr 38 Special +P Ballistic Gel Test (HD)

I test the load in a snub nose revolver as well as a full size wheel gun in a gel block to see how it performs from each revolver.

  1. A jacketed version of the very old idea of loading a hollow base wadcutter backwards. The HST holds together nicely while the HBWC usually blew up.

  2. You should make a backup channel on vid.me with all this youtube craziness going on. When I first saw the rounds I was just getting up and my brain went to wadcutters I was like wtf lolol Neat little product. Strange it was slower out of the 4" though. I wonder if they purposely figured out a way to make rounds work better in the snub nose or if it was a fluke. Could be interesting to pick their brains. Might be on the start side of a new trend.

  3. Im amazed the speed is so slow.For plus p loads I was expecting upwards of 1100 f.p.s. The expansion at such a slow speed makes this a good load for any ladies who carry a snub and are sensitive to recoil.

  4. With today's quality subcompact semi-auto pistols, I fail to see any real benefit to snubby revolvers anymore. The snubby is safer to slip into the waistband without a holster compared to my Glock 43, but when using a holster, the G43 beats a snubby in every way…ballistically, more firepower, faster/easier reloads, easier carry of that reload (mag vs speed loader), and control/accuracy during rapid-fire. I've carried snubbies intermittently over the years. I've since moved on.

  5. Good stuff, but I think it's time Freedom Munitions is put in the spotlight. They sponsor a few bigger channels out there, and Youtubers shy away from testing their defensive and hunting loads.
    Prove how great they are.

  6. So the ammo you show says "micro" on it with a picture of a snub nose, but the ammo at brownells doesn't say this so i'm guessing they have 2 different versions of the ammo in 38 spl?

  7. THE WORD OF GOD DECLARES THAT WHOEVER CONFESSES WITH THEIR MOUTH JESUS/YESHUA AS LORD & BELIEVES WITH WHOLE HEART THAT GOD THE FATHER RAISED HIM/JESUS FROM THE DEAD SHALL BE SAVED/RECONCILE { Romans 10:9-10 & 2 CORINTHIANS 5:19 }. NEVER i SAY NEVER ADD TO OR SUBTRACT FROM THIS TRUTH OR YOU WILL BE GUILTY OF DECEITFULLY HANDLING THE WORD OF GOD. JUST SAY WHAT THE WORD SAYS NO MORE OR NO LESS & BY ALL MEANS KEEP YOUR FEELINGS & EMOTICONS SEPARATE FROM THE WORD OF HIS GRACE. 8/20/17 ~MARANATHA~ also 1 John 5:1

  8. Youtube is starting to scrub Gun Channels from my searches and my recommended Everyone needs to pay attention they are going shut us down in general I think soon!

  9. I just bought a box from Walmart for $24. This was in Indiana, and the clerk said he got them in today. So my guess is midwest Walmarts should be getting them any time. Might go back and grab another. Great for my LCRx snubbie!

  10. I love your test videos typically. This one was good to show the velocity from the different barrel lengths. However, the gel test doesn't help much unless shooting a naked bad guy. It would be better to do the gel test with the typical four layers of material over it to replicate shooting through clothing.

  11. I been trying to get my hands on some of this ammo for some time now. Mostly to test it the way you are. It seems like good ammo, but I would want to see how it performs through 4 layers of denim before I trade in my Critical Defense +P rounds in my J-frame for this ammo.
