- Q & A
When Hornady designed their Critical Duty line of defensive ammunition, they had a specific goal in mind: to meet or surpass the FBI’s standards for self-defense rounds. And they did. This ammunition passes what the FBI calls the intermediate barrier test: blasting through automobile glass, layers of clothing, drywall, and sheets of steel. If you want to carry high-quality defensive rounds on par with the FBI’s carry loads, these Hornady .40 S&W Critical Duty 175 grain JHP rounds are what you want.
At 175 grain, these rounds are pretty heavy for a 40 cal round, and that’s great, because it lends to their impact power. They have a muzzle velocity of 1010 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 396 foot-pounds. Add those factors to their sheer size and you have one-shot stopping power, and in self-defense scenarios, that’s exactly what you need. This ammunition leaves the muzzle of your gun quickly and impacts your target with a serious punch.
One of the problems with many hollow points is clogging in the hollow tip and unpredictable expansion. That’s why Hornady came up with Flex Tip technology in 2009. The soft polymer balls they insert into the tip of these rounds prevents clogging and multiple features, including the fact that these are JHP, control expansion to give you reliable mushrooming. Hollow points are a must for self-defense, because when they hit your intended target, they expand and slow down rather than continuing to travel and potentially hitting the innocent. With expansion you can count on, these rounds are ideal for personal protection.
It’s vital to practice with all your ammunition, because different rounds behave in different ways. And with 200 rounds in this box of ammunition, you can rest assured you’ll have enough for training and personal carry, too. Hornady ammunition is manufactured at their long-time plant located in Grand Island, Nebraska. If you’re serious about protecting yourself and your family, order now.
