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.
  • Shiny silver nickel plating prevents corrosion, and is easily visible in low light situations.
  • 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.”

(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.
