When lives are on the line, only the best will do.

Since their inception, conventional hollow point pistol bullets have performed well, but have never delivered 100% reliability especially in self-defense situations. The patented Flex Tip® technology used in Critical Defense® ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. Hornady® achieved this by using the same tip material as used in LEVERevolution® ammunition.

All Critical Defense® ammunition is loaded in nickel cases for increased visibility in low-light situations. Premium low flash propellants deliver proven performance, even in very short-barreled handguns, and won't disrupt your vision. Reliable expansion and dependable terminal performance can be counted on for concealed carry/personal protection.



  • Unaffected by thick and heavy clothing, including denim and leather.
  • FTX® bullet delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities.
  • Clean burning and efficient propellants reduce recoil in lightweight handguns, and perform consistently at all temperatures.
  • Minimal muzzle flash protects night vision.
  • Feeds reliably in pistols.
  • Silver nickel plating prevents corrosion and is easily visible in low light situations.
  • Bullets are custom designed for individual loads.
    The most effective, consistent, and reliable concealed carry ammunition available today!
