OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (January 11, 2017) – Federal Premium is proud to announce that two ammunition products have received the prestigious “Member Tested and Recommended” seal of approval from the members of the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA).
After extensive testing by law enforcement officials – judged on a scale from 1 to 5 – two ammunition products scored over 4, which garnered the seal of approval.
“Having the NTOA members recommend the HST bullet for Personal Defense is an honor,” said Jason Nash, Marketing Director. “HST is one of the top performing, proven and trusted LE duty projectiles.
