147 HST from my wife's Glock 43
« on: June 14, 2017, 07:19:36 AM »
It is the non +P, average was 951.

I did get that done, then my Critical Duty showed 1056 and on shot two, the chrono met its maker and took a 10mm through the Ticker.
If you can't shoot minute of bad guy, and get faced with a gun fight, spend your last minutes Praying,Begging, Running or all 3

Was any expansion noted when shot through the chrono?

Nope, barrier blind.

There's not enough difference in performance to justify price. I can get 50 rounds of regular HST's for $20.95. The Micro's run $27-$30 for 20 rounds.

Micro hst are only $21 also, but yes you are right -2for1 as the std hst come 50/box --- watch with the standard 147 hst as they don't open as well at lower velocities like the 150 does---

Agreed.
Here are links to Lucky Gunner's "apples to apples" exactly consistent clear ballistics tests for both products out 3.5" barrel 9mm...
150gr HST Micro:
http://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-150-grain-hst-jhp-federal-premium-20-rounds#geltest
147gr HST:
http://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-147-grain-jhp-hst-federal-premium-le-50-rounds#geltest

Just for giggles 147gr HST +P:
http://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-p-147-gr-hst-jhp-federal-premium-law-enforcement-50-rounds#geltest

In these uniform & consistent tests; at best the Micro did marginally better but I prefer the deeper penetration of the 147gr +P

Lucky gunner is why I have her carrying HST's.
