- Q & A
Those who know the ins and outs of defensive shooting understand the need for the right balance of certain elements: penetration, expansion, and velocity. When Hornady created Critical Defense ammunition, they wanted to create a civilian self-defense round with less recoil that was still a hot round. And they did. Not only does this Hornady .40 S&W Critical Defense 165 grain JHP (jacketed hollow point) ammunition blow through a variety of barriers and layers, it performs dependably time and again. If you carry for personal protection, this round’s for you.
These are 165 grain rounds, making them moderately heavy, and good weight is what you want from defensive ammunition. They have a muzzle velocity of 1,175 feet per second, which is a nice speed for a heavier round, and muzzle energy of 506 foot-pounds. That energy means you’ll be hitting your intended target with a hefty slap and leaving an impressive wound track. The JHP helps control the rate of expansion, and that combined with Hornady’s unique Flex Tip technology means your round will mushroom dependably and not get clogged up by whatever substance it has to travel through to reach its goal.
Hornady has been around for more than sixty years and manufactures its ammunition in Grand Island, Nebraska. Decades and three generations of dedication to excellence have come together to bring you this .40 S&W 165 grain JHP round. There are 200 rounds in this box, so you can take some time training with it; a vital part of any self-defense shooter’s repertoire. Your gun will stay cleaner longer as a result of clean burning propellants and you’ll enjoy smooth cycling round after round. You really can’t ask for more from self-defense ammunition; this ammunition delivers everything you need in one neat package.
