Don't know if any of you would be interested in some, but ammunitiontogo.com has some in stock at the moment.

They have had them in stock for a while. I bought some three months ago. Pretty decent 124 gr JHP round.

I don't look for 9mm too often unless I'm in need and the last few times I'd looked, HST was like pixie dust and every store around here wants to charge atleast a dollar a round for SD loads

He makes his own. So I'm sure
if I remember correctly MO does 124gr +P JHP with a minimum order of 250 at 25$ for 50.
I'd like to get some but I can't seem to be able to pony up enough money for the minimum order

I bought 500 rounds of 9mm HST in December, but it wasn't $600 per 1k, think it was more around 450.

Yep, that is about right. 215 for 500 of them if I remember correctly.

I didn't have enough milk jugs to do an averaged test today, but this 147gr 9mm (non +P) HST round expanded to .712" from the wife's 3.93" Barrelled Semi Compact Baby Eagle.. Went through two milk jugs and piereced the third, and was found lying in front of it. Shot was from about 12 feet.

Wow, that is beautiful.

Great pictures of some great controlled expansion.

You should send them to the manufacturer and ask for some $$ :laugh: they could probably use those in an ad!

I carry the 124gr +p 9mm load in my CZ P-01. Accurate, reliable and consistent expansion almost identical to the pic above. Not to mention the stuff is cheap for what is! It is the best carry ammo available in my opinion.
Chuckd, thanks for nothing about letting the cat out of the bag on this one. For a while there, not too many people even knew this round was out there, keeping the price low and availability decent.

I agree. I carry that round exclusively in my 228. I needs to replenish!

I'm partial to Doubletap 124gr+P, loaded with Speer Gold dots at a mv of 1400+ fps. It's performance in the gel tests i saw was tremendous, +.70" caliber avg expansion and 13.75" penetration, with over 500fpe of muzzle energy.

There are several very, very good loads available in 9mm nowadays though.
