With ammunition still in short supply and prices absurdly high it’s refreshing to see new product offerings that address the needs of most shooters – adequate supply of practice ammunition along with a high performance defensive load. HSM’s differentiator is that they are ballistically matched.
The HSM Double Duty combo pack contains 250 rounds of lower-cost ball ammunition and 50 rounds of self-defense ammunition, all economically packaged together in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.
The 250 rounds of 9mm and .40 S&W practice loads use once-fired brass that’s been cleaned, tumbled and totally refurbished before factory reloading. The 50 rounds of premium self-defense loads use new brass and Hornady’s excellent XTP hollow-point bullet.
The .45 ACP loads also use the Hornady XTP hollow-point, and use new brass for both the practice and self-defense loads because it’s tough even for a factory to get enough once-fired .45 ACP brass.
The HSM Double Duty package gives gun owners a decent quantity of lower-cost practice ammunition, and a useable quantity of premium self-defense ammunition that are ballistically matched. That means that you can practice with the lower-cost ball (which also works fine for self defense) and the premium self-defense loads will go to the same point of impact.

HSM uses ultra-high-quality, copper-plated lead bullets for more economical, accurate practice/range rounds that will not lead barrels. In fact, an HSM copper-plated lead round looks, feels and fires no differently than a hardball round. The HSM copper-plated lead bullet also offers an additional benefit: It has expansion capability that a standard hardball round cannot match.
