The Hornady Critical Defense line of personal defense ammunition is loaded with the patented FTX bullet, which offer expansion even through heavy clothing.

Critical DEFENSE® handgun ammunition was developed to provide the best performance for DEFENSIVE or PERSONAL PROTECTION SITUATIONS and is the ultimate choice for any short barreled, concealed carry style firearm.

  • Unaffected by thick and heavy clothing, including denim and leather.
  • Patented FTX bullet delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities.
  • 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.”

by from Austin, IN on

I bought this for self defense in my Glock 19, the one time I actually had to use it, was when it was the only gun I had on a mangy coyote. I hit him in the neck from 25 yards away and he dropped and never moved again! Awesome round!

(5 out of 5) Another great Hornady product.
by from Courtland, VA on

Ammo performed as advertised in a sub compact and compact firearm. No failures and it looked like I was getting good expansion on the rounds I checked.

(5 out of 5) Fastest service I have EVER received online
by from Coldwater, MI on

I ordered the ammo Tuesday morning, it shipped the same day and I had it Wednesday afternoon. It's the best service and fastest turnaround I have ever received from an online retailer. The ammo was well packed and in great shape. I expect it to work very well. I will most definitely order from Sportsmans Outdoors again in the future. Thanks!

You can not beat the reliability of this ammo. Never a FTF or misfire. Always very accurate.
