NEW For 2022: Federal HST .357 Magnum Personal Defense


NEW For 2022: Federal HST .357 Magnum Personal Defense

The .357 Magnum caliber has earned itself quite the reputation as a man stopper. In my favorite video game as a child, it was the one bullet that went through walls. Even those with no knowledge of firearms know the name “.357 Magnum”. Well, all of this is true for a reason. To this day, the caliber finds itself on the hips of police officers and in the pants of armed civilians. To give it a bit more gusto, Federal has added it to one of the company’s most successful lines of Personal Defense ammunition. New for 2022, this is Federal HST .357 Magnum.
