I carry Federal HST 124 gr in my 9mm carry guns. Up until now it has come in 50-round cardboard boxes and could be had for $23-28 per box. Suddenly it's only available in fancy plastic boxes of 20 rounds and costs $25-28 per box. That's right, a cost increase of over 50% due to repackaging. I e-mailed Federal to see what's so special about the new stuff that could have explained such a giant leap in price; I doubt I'll hear anything, but if I do I'll be sure to post it.
