.40S&W MK308 mod-0 155gr JHP

I came across some of this Federal .40S&W 155gr HST contract ammo for the U.S. Coast Guard recently. Boxes of it for sale at Targetsports. I can not find much talk before on these Mk308 mod-0 rds, and only one thread from Tony WIlliams from back in 2011 when they were newer stuff. I have seen factory overrun 155gr HST loads like this from Federal in generic boxes though. The NSN for this ammo is 1305-01-548-6279 and dates back to February 2007 as far as I can tell.

U.S. Coast Guard .40 Caliber Ammunition

Procurement or the .40 S&W ammo by the U.S. Navy, example is for fiscal year 2014:

Any idea on whose bullet was used? The expanded bullet in the PDF looks good.

It’s a Federal “HST”. At 155gr it is lighter than the more standard 165gr or 180gr stuff.
