As Hornady says, “When lives are on the line, only the best will do.” Experienced self-defense shooters understand the importance of loading their personal carry weapon with hollow points. But even though HP’s are supposed to expand reliably on impact and perform well overall, there are too many cases where HP’s fail to feed or expand properly. Hornady’s solution to those problems is their Critical Defense FTX line. This ammunition is designed for superior performance, reliable feeding, and dependable, controlled expansion. When it comes to self-defense, shooters in the know turn to Hornady.
These rounds have FTX bullets, which are Hornady’s top-tier method for delivering a big wound track with deeper penetration. It provides rapid energy transfer and expands on impact, and thanks to an above-average-in-strength jacket, expansion is controlled and it has excellent weight retention. These are nickel-plated for greater visibility in the dark and have specially created powder to minimize muzzle flash and preserve your night vision. And if you’re in an extreme climate, you can rest assured Hornady designed this ammunition to perform in a wide range of temperatures.
At 115 grain these are quite lightweight, which lends to their muzzle velocity of 1,140 feet per second. Their muzzle energy is 332 foot-pounds. There are 25 defense rounds in this box which is a good size for placing in your safe and just right for keeping your gun and a spare mag loaded for self-defense. All of Hornady’s products are and always have been manufactured in the United States at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. If you’re looking for an entirely new level of quality in self-defense ammunition, look no further.

These are the bullets I use when I carry because they are accurate , dependable and deadly and I wouldn't want ...
Professional customer service, quality product and timely delivery.
accurate, fast with moderate recoil. best option for pocket 9'son 10/20/2015
great ballistic's optimized for smaller 9's, Critical DUTY will be preferred in 3+ inch pistols and, obviously, duty-sized pistols. the polymer lead to a no-clog repeatable and consitient expansion even from shorter barrels, stupid-accurate with not a lot of shock and awe but devastating effects. the strong tapered profile lends well to reliable feeding even in pocket 9's with very steep feed ramps(think shield, LC9, PT111 and other designs that attempted to pack a few to many n a steep grip angle with out a lot of wiggle room for wide-mouth HP's. shoot with confidence, use what the pro's trust and keep ballistic superiority even from your sub 3" barrels.
