147gr HST Real World Results

Discussion in 'GATE Self-Defense Forum' started by FLglockdude, Dec 6, 2010.

  1. Have there been any LE or self defense shootings where the 147gr HST round was used? If so, how did they perform?

    Portland (Oregon) Police Bureau has issued it for their Glock 9mms for some time, and reportedly are very happy with it. About a dozen gunfights with it have ended quickly. I've heard of once incident where a meth-head soaked up 11 rounds before he went down, but it was reportedly a running gunfight in which the suspect presented a very difficult marksmanship problem and took several peripheral hits before shots to the upper chest ended the fight.

    It's up there with the Winchester Ranger-T as among the very best choices in a 147 grain 9mm subsonic police/defense round, IMHO.

    best,
