Hornady Critical Defense Ammunition features a hollow point bullet, with a polymer tip to improve ballistic performance and reliable expansion. Bright nickel plated cases aid in visibility in low light conditions, and loaded with low-flash propellants.

Since their inception, conventional hollow point pistol bullets have performed well, but have never delivered 100% reliability especially in self-defense situations. The patented Flex Tip technology used in Critical Defense ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. Hornady achieved this by using the same tip material as used in LEVERevolution ammunition.

All Critical Defense ammunition is loaded in nickel cases for increased visibility in low-light situations. Premium low flash propellants deliver proven performance, even in very shortbarreled handguns, and won't disrupt your vision. Reliable expansion and dependable terminal performance can be counted on for concealed carry/personal protection.

Specifications and Features:
Unaffected by thick and heavy clothing, including denim and leather
Patented FTX bullet delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities
Clean burning and stable propellants reduce recoil in lightweight handguns, and perform consistently in all temperatures
Minimal muzzle flash protects night vision
Feeds reliably in all pistols
Shiny silver nickel plating prevents corrosion, and is easily visible in low light situations
Bullets are cannelured and crimped to avoid bullet setback

4.0 Rating Interesting round - 3/12/2010
Reviewer: Brad
When I first shot these I thought they were simply pathetic. They feel just like the cheap 115 grain practice ammo. Then I realized that these can really fill a gap. That is the gap between a 380 and a 9. There are a lot of folks out there who shoot 380's especially women. My wife does not shoot, but if she ever does I have a few boxes of the perfect round for her. The kick of a 380 with the capacity of a full 9 (in a glock or other) Plus no new gun, I have plenty of 9s in various sizes and capacities. Plus all of the gel tests I have seen show that the round meets the FBI protocol. If my wife ever does carry I will feel a lot better about it with this round as opposed to a 380.

1.0 Rating Hard Primer ammo - 2/20/2010
Reviewer: Ron Campione
I tried this ammunition in my "Rohrbaugh" mini-9mm pistol. These guns are expensive BUT very finicky about ammunition. It works well with Federal, Winchester and Speer brands. However, with the Hornady's Critical Defense,(I have not tried and other type of Hornady), every fifth to sixth round would not go off. A second pull of the trigger set-off about half of the rounds which failed the first time. Bullets that did fire were very accurate, but I can't trust my life to ammunition which won't work every time the trigger is pulled! To be fair, I have learned that Hornady's primers are a bit too "Hard" for the Rohrbaugh pistol and that Hornady is aware of the problem. Perhaps there are other pistols which will not work well with this ammo, but I am not aware of any personally. My suggestion would be to test fire this ammo before buying a bulk amount. I love my Rohrbaugh AND the accuracy of the Critical Defense cartridges - too bad the two don't mix!

5.0 Rating awesome cartridge - 2/21/2010
Reviewer: murfdawg
I bought 2 boxes. I shot 5 rounds through my Glock 19 and my Beretta PX4. Not even a hiccup from either gun. It’s accurate and when I caught some slugs in water jugs they performed just as Hornady said they would. It’s my home defense and CCW ammo.
