Details

Hornady's 2012 introduction of Critical Duty ammo has been met with applause from the law enforcement community. Critical Duty ammunition is designed to perform very well on the stringent FBI protocol tests making this ideally suited for law enforcement as well as personal defense situations.

The biggest thing that differentiates Critical Duty from Hornady's Critical Defense ammo is that Critical Duty ammo is designed to penetrate barriers such as sheet metal, wall board, plywood, heavy clothing, and auto glass as outlined in the FBI protocols. This barrier penetration need is more prevalent in the law enforcement community due to the different types of threats that LE professionals are likely to encounter.

This ammo has performed very well in FBI tests maintaining great weight retention through all barriers helping it to achieve the required 12-18" of penetration into gelatin after passing through the established barriers. The FlexLock bullet incorporates Hornady's patented Flex Tip that initiates expansion every time while preventing clogging along with their Interlock band that prevents jacket/core separation. Jacket/Core separation is where most non-bonded JHP bullets fail in penetration tests because when the lead core and copper jacket separate from each other their lighter weights aren't able to achieve the needed penetration to bring down an assailant. The Interlock band prevents this occurrence.

Hornady's Critical Duty line of ammo is truly a 21st century duty ammunition!

Q: What is the difference between the 9mm-+P and the regular 9mm Hornady Critical Duty ammo.

Posted On: 9/16/12 By: Brian Thuermer

A: The +P indicates that this Hornady ammunition is loaded to a higher pressure than the standard specifications. This will increase velocity as well as recoil when shot. While +P does not indicate the type of bullet used, it is usually associated with ammunition that features a jacketed hollow point bullet. This critical duty ammo has a JHP bullet with a polymer plug covering the cavity at the tip. This helps with expansion control upon impact.

A Nine Worth Your Time Review by Wagonmaster
Performance

Hornady's Critical Duty is more than a notch up from their Critical Defense, especially in 9 mm. Heavier than standard with relatively high antimony, the bullet packs something previous Nines lacked: terminal punch at the end of the crush cavity. Penetration for Nines has always been good in hardball, but JHPs can fail. Crit Duty holds together and although the mushroom is not spectacular, it is predictable. The only drawback is that the polymer filling in the cavity can drag on the mag interior, causing occasional feeding issues (I had heard about that, and it finally happened to my Beretta 92FS). Just be sure to thump the rear of the charged mag against your palm before loading to make sure all case heads are seated and you should be good to go with one of the best defensive rounds for a full-sized Nine on the market.

I CARRY A 45 CALIBER GLOCK MODEL 36 FOR SEARCH WARRANT WORK HOWEVER I DID RESEARCH ON 9MM AMMO TO INCLUDE THE RECENT AMERICA RIFLEMAN MAGAZINE ARTICLE GIVEN TO ME BY OUR BALLISTICS EXPERT FOR THE COUNTY AND THE RATINGS ON THIS PARTICULAR 9MM CRITICAL DUTY HAS NOW PROMPTED ME TO CARRY A 9MM S&W SHIELD AS BOTH MY BACK UP WEAPON AND FOR UNDERCOVER USE IN A WAISTBAND HOLSTER. THE ROUND HAS REALLY GOOD STOPPING POWER AND DOES NOT GET BOGGED DOWN IN HEAVY CLOTHING BECAUSE OF HOLLOW POINT CLOGGING. IT CUTS THROUGH MATERIAL THEN EXPANDS CAUSING SERIOUS TISSUE DAMAGE.
