Critical defense ammo expands uniformly and performs well even when penetrating thick clothing.
Hornady Critical Defense ammunition is loaded with Hornady's patented Flex Tip bullet. Unlike most hollow point bullets, the Flex Tip bullet features a soft polymer insert that allows for consistent and reliable expansion. Each bullet is custom designed for individual loads and loaded in nickel plated cases to help prevent corrosion.
This ammunition is designed by Hornady to expand every single time. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable nickel-plated brass cases.

- clean, accurate, maybe a little underloaded Review by Fwank
From the testing I've read this seems to be a fairly decent defensive round--it expands well, it penetrates well, it seems like a good bet to destroy a lot of tissue--but I wish they were loaded hotter. This is something we see with a lot of Hornady factory loaded .357, velocities 100 f.p.s. or more below what we would expect for a given bullet weight. (Posted on 1/14/11)
