    Looking for a brand that expands reliably in both .45 and 9mm calibers. I use Hydra-Shok now but I see a while ago on here you said that wasn't too reliable anymore. Should I move on to Federal HST? Your thoughts?

    Not that it's not reliable, just that there's better now. I moved from Hydra-Shok to HST and similar more modern loads, and recommend same.
    Best,
