    Product Summary

    The Hornady Critical Defense line of personal defense ammunition is the most effective, consistent, and reliable self-defense ammunition available today. Loaded with the patented FTX bullet, these bullets are unaffected by thick and heavy clothing, including denim and leather. This bullet delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities. The clean burning and stable propellants reduce recoil in lightweight handguns, and perform consistently in all temperatures. Shiny silver nickel plating prevents corrosion, and is easily visible in low light situations.
