NEW For Federal Premium: HST .357 Magnum Personal Defense

    HST .357 Magnum

    The .357 Magnum caliber has earned a reputation as a man stopper. In the N64 Goldeneye, it was even capable of shooting through walls. Take that, General Ourumov! This reputation is well-deserved. The caliber has been on the hips of police and civilians for decades. Now, Federal Premium has added it to its HST line of Personal Defense ammunition. New for 2022, this is Federal HST .357 Magnum.
