In case you're wondering what the difference between Critical Duty and Hornady's Critical Defense ammo it's that Critical Duty ammo is designed to penetrate barriers such as sheet metal, wallboard, 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.
You're sure to appreciate having this 357 SIG 135 grain FlexLock JHP round loaded in your pistol since you'll have the peace of mind of carrying a round that performed great in FBI testing for weight retention through all barriers. This excellent performance is due in large part to Hornady's patented FlexLock jacket hollow point projectile that combines a polymer tip that prevents premature clogging/expansion and a interlock band that mechanically prevents jacket/core separation so that you have superior weight retention.
Also, your peace of mind will be even more complete thanks to the corrosion-resistance and smooth feeding of this round thanks to its nickel-plated brass case.
