- Q & A
All too many gun owners train exclusively using target rounds. It’s true that defense rounds cost more and burning through a case of them at the range might seem excessive from a financial standpoint, but you have to ask yourself another question. Is there a price tag on the life and well-being of your loved ones? On your own life and well-being? Since defense rounds create more recoil than target rounds it can be harder to make accurate shots, let alone follow-up shots, in the controlled environment of the range, let alone in the high tension of a self-defense situation. In order to ensure you have the best possible chance, you need to practice with defense rounds.
Hornady has been in the business of manufacturing ammunition since 1949. The company was founded by Joyce Hornady after he saw how poorly the ammunition hitting the market at the end of World War II was performing. He decided the solution was to make ammunition himself, and his dedication to quality and reliability turned the company into the powerhouse it is today. They’re renowned for their superior quality and performance; if you want top tier defense rounds, you want Hornady.
At 185 grain these are moderately heavy rounds for the .45 ACP. They’re heavy enough to leave a serious impression on targets, and that’s just what you want from defense ammunition. These are Hornady’s XTP – Xtreme Terminal Performance – rounds. They begin to expand on impact, delivering controlled expansion for a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 970 feet per second and muzzle energy of 386 foot-pounds. There are 200 defense rounds in this box. Hornady manufactures ammunition according to exacting standards at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. Don’t cut corners on your self-defense training. Buy Hornady, and buy it now.
