Default Which would you prefer, HST or SXT?

If you can only have one, which will you depend your life on?

FEDERAL PREMIUM TACTICAL HST 9mm 147grn (P9HST2)
WINCHESTER RANGER T SERIES 9mm 147grn (RA9T)

In case it matters, these will be fed on S&W 5906, Springfield XDm and Walther PPS.

I carried HSTs in my 9mm when I had it and I carry HSTs in my 45. I went with the 147gr +p flavor in the 9 and 230gr +p for my 45. There is nothing wrong with the Rangers, it's good ammo but IMO, HSTs are the best bullet on the market right now.

I did a test with them in 45 and I had numerous rounds come just within an inch!! .996 and .997 wasn't uncommon with 100% weight retention.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
