    • Clean burning and stable propellants reduce recoil in lightweight handguns, and perform consistently in all temperatures.
    • Minimal muzzle flash protects night vision.
    • Feeds reliably in all pistols.
    • Bullets are cannelured and crimped to avoid bullet setback.
    • Bullets are custom designed for individual loads.
    • The most effective, consistent, and reliable self-defense ammunition available today.

The Patented FTX® Bullet

The FTX® bullets loaded in all Hornady Critical Defense® handgun ammunition are designed to expand and provide the terminal performance needed for close encounters often associated with personal protection situations. Additionally, Critical DEFENSE® is not intended for use in extreme (law enforcement) situations that require superior barrier performance. However, the FTX® bullet will expand reliably and will not clog like standard hollow point bullets when fired through heavy clothing. In addition, Critical DEFENSE® ammunition IS optimized for short barreled, concealed carry style handguns and will not deliver excessive recoil and associated “muzzle flip.”
