Shooters who use .40 S&W have found the sweet spot between 9mm and 10mm calibers where greater power is combined with slightly less recoil. A .40S&W is a big hit on its targets, is fractionally shorter than a 10mm round, and is widely popular with law enforcement nationwide. And if you have a .40, odds are you use it for personal protection. Self-defense shooting requires a trustworthy defensive round, and that’s where Hornady .40 S&W Critical Defense 165 grain JHP comes in. With this ammunition, you get the safety of a hollow point – knowing your round won’t simply keep on going after hitting your assailant – and the proven power of Hornady.

“Ten rounds through one hole” was what founder Joyce Hornady used to say, and more than sixty years later, Hornady continues to manufacture ammunition to his high standards. Their ammunition is made in America in Grand Island, Nebraska, and their plant has been the stage for more than ammunition innovation over the years. Critical Defense is another one of those innovations, giving the civilian shooter some of the firepower usually reserved for law enforcement agencies like the FBI. This particular ammunition has a muzzle velocity of 1175, which is an impressive speed for the moderately heavy 165 grain rounds. They also have a muzzle energy of 506 foot-pounds, so you know they’ll put a nice-sized hole through your targets.

For good one-shot stopping power, pick up this 20-round box. You’ll get the benefit of Hornady’s Flex Tip technology to prevent hollow-point clogs, smooth cycling, and a multitude of features, all designed to make a top-of-the-line defensive round. These are American made rounds you can load your self-defense firearm with and go out knowing you’re well protected.
