Federal P40HST1S Uneven Serrations

I picked up two 20 round boxes of 180 grain HST from Dicks for the ridiculous price of $25 each. I was in need of recycling my HSTs and I couldn't find any 50 rounders in stock online.

Anyways I noticed that the serrations on the bullets are of different lengths. Some travel down to the case mouth, while others are shorter, looking like the serrations of the lighter weight HST bullets. I've been using HST since 2010 and never noticed this deviation. Is is bad QC or has federal made changes to the 180 and my lot has old and new bullets mixed in? I'll try posting a picture soon.

Don't know about serrations, but sgammo has the same ammo in 50 round boxes for that price.

I didn't see it when I looked. I used a gift card so I wasn't too upset about the price.

Yea it just looked odd. I might order a box or two from sg. I carry two mags so 40 rounds gives me plenty extra to cycle through.

I had a gift card and dicks was just conveinent. L

I see a slight variation in some of my 230gr .45 HSTs but not as bad as what your pic shows. I'm not worried. I've never heard of QC problems with HSTs.

Makes you wonder if some 165 grain bullets got mixed in by mistake.
