Friends

Help me out here.HST is still available most places.Even target sports shows 39.99 per 50! They have sales and .45 is maybe 25 bucks a box, same with .40.

Bone frog has great prices, .45 and .40 but 9mm is higher and demands LEO credentials.

On my last order I asked for an explanation and no response.

Anyone have an answer?

Side note, Norma has a new monolithic 9mm defense round that’s very impressive.

Hmmm... I've got a bunch of HST that I bought years ago. I recall paying about $25 for a box of 50.... either 9-mm or .40... I forget.

Just checked my inventory... about 1400 rounds of HST in 9-mm, .40, .45-ACP, and .38-SPL. :dancingbanana

Don't have nearly as much HST as racer but what I do have cost me about the same, $25/box of 50 for 147 gr 9mm.

I guess I should continue to hold on to my HST ammo, eh? :)

My carry ammo is HST. Good stuff with a good record.

Mine too, either 147 gr 9mm or 230 gr .45 ACP. Great stuff that's a proven performer on the street. Backup is Winchester Ranger-T, another great performer out on the street. :pistols

I carry either the Wilson Combat custom ammo, or the ASYM by Stan Chen. Both have very low flash signature. Pricey though

Great minds, pig. I carry Asym too in .45. Great ammo.

I’m just wondering what’s up with the significant increase and the inconsistent LEO only purchasing.

TargetSports seems to run specials on HST at least twice a year where can pick up boxes of 50 at the prices mentioned. I have about 350 rounds of 180 grain HST for 40. Please tell me this is not about to go away. I want to pick up a bit more because I want to be able to shoot what I carry at least a few times a year.

Well, this will make us all cry! I searched my old emails. This is an order from SG Ammo back in 2011.

$17 / box of 50 HST in .40!



This was .gov contract over-run stuff. If I recall, the brass cases are dyed PURPLE. I've still got this stuff. Don't want to wake up the wife... Maybe tomorrow, I'll fetch a box and take a photo of the ammo.

Yup, that's somewhat disappointing, racer but I shoot just enough HST in my EDC pistols to ensure they are reliable and practice with identical weight 147/230 grain range ammo with the same bullet profile. Hopefully those prices on HST come back down a bit of at least don't rise much more. :dunno

It must have been some other ammo that was purple-dyed brass. I distinctly remember the brass. But, I apparently cannot remember the ammo type. :)

Here's the $17 / box .40-cal HST I got back in 2011.

Another vote for the Winchester Ranger T, 147 grain. I also buy from SG Ammo. <img src="http://www.floridaconcealedcarry.com/Forum/images/smilies/hand10.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumbs Up" class="inlineimg" />
