Experienced shooters rely on Hornady for their personal protection needs, and if you don’t carry Hornady yet, maybe it’s time you did. This ammunition has multiple features specifically created to meet your self-defense needs, including unique propellants to reduce muzzle flash, which helps preserve your night vision. They’re also produced in nickel-plated brass cases, so they have a longer shelf-life and are also easier to see in dim or dark lighting and are coated so they feed and eject with above-average dependability. And, of course, they contain Hornady’s XTP – eXtreme Terminal Performance – bullet for amazing velocity, energy, and accuracy.
There are 20 defense rounds in this box, so if you purchase a single box you’ll have enough to load your firearm for personal protection. If you buy multiple boxes, you can dedicate some time to training with these rounds, which is a wise idea since they feel different than the average target round. They are 155 grain which is a medium weight for the cartridge and as HP rounds they’re capable of impressive energy transfer and immediate expansion on impact. When it comes to self-defense, you want rounds that move fast, and these certainly do; they have a muzzle velocity of 1,180 feet per second. And obviously you want your rounds to hit hard; they have a muzzle energy of 479 foot-pounds.
During World War II, founder Joyce Hornady was a marksmanship instructor for the military, and his love of firearms and skill have translated well into the business. It takes years of experience and real dedication to quality to create this kind of top-tier defense ammunition, and with more than sixty years in business and clear loyalty to both the industry and sport and hunting shooters, Hornady is more than up to the job.
