    Tried a Google search but only came up with discussions or a BS Gunbroker ad. Who has 'em in stock? Ammotogo doesn't.

    JMO but I think Federal (ATK) is very busy with contract production for various governmental concerns (foreign and domestic) and hasn't had time to produce the fancy box stuff. So, HST has been really hard to find. It has been interesting however, to note that Ranger-T (its equal or superior) seems to be relatively plentiful in the last couple of months. Moral of the story: When you see it, stock up like the case in my garage.

    In stock? That's the problem.

    Streichers carries HST's at a reasonable price and you can place an order with them today. But they don't currently have any in stock and you'll probably have to wait a few months for your order to arrive at your doorstep.

    If you need them sooner than that, I don't know what to tell you.

    Last time I saw it at Ammotogo I bought 3 boxes. I only use it for carry loads, so it gets used by switching out ammo every few months or by running a few mags to check for function on a new gun.

    I have 1 box left. Feeling a little panicky! :wow:

    seems the 2 hardest rounds to get on the face of the planet are 124gr+P & 147gr+P HST's.

    Actually, the 147gr +P is mythical, is it not? Kinda like a unicorn. I've heard of it but never heard of anyone actually having it.

    Ha ha ha ha, might have to wait a "few" months for an order from streichers. Just be aware Streichers charges up front, and you might be like me who's few months is currently at over 10 months for 230 grain 45acp HST, and I'm still waiting - how much longer ????? Who knows, I'd recommend looking for places that have it instock, instead of waiting who knows how long for production to "catch" up.

    I'm starting on month three, waiting on Streicher's for the Speer 135 gr +P GDHP in .38 Special. In the meantime, ATG had gotten some in stock and I bought a few boxes from them. NOBODY had those Gold Dots in stock forever so I went with Streicher's backorder. I'm not real happy about being charged up front, being charged extra for the shipping and having to wait this long but, at the time I made the order, it was the only alternative.

    At one time recently, I was under the impression that ATK had advised dealers they could only sell HST ammo to LE. Does Streicher's sell them to the general public?

    ATG's price is a smokin' deal. I bought some, too. Great price on the .40 180gr Gold Dots, as well.
