Since this is basically the same thing as Critical Defense, for a couple bucks less, I call it a win. My wife and I have settled into carrying Hornady Critical Defense, Z-Max, or Critical Duty in her FNP45 Tactical and my M&P45c. They all three run reliably, and have tested very well for stopping power, even if the FNP45 does favor the hotter loadings.
This ammo is very accurate and functioned flawlessly in my Kimber. This is a nice alternative to the 230 grain standard. The marketing and packaging is fun, however I think the ammo is a serious self defense load. I just placed an order for another box. Good job Hornady, and thanks Lucky Gunner!
These are almost identical to the Critical Defense line except for the brass case instead of nickle plated ones. I tested some in wet books out of a Glock 21 and the expansion was most impressive. It outperformed a Hydra-Shok in expansion. The only bullet to come close to it in expansion is Corbon DPX solid copper 160 grain (non +P). This round is a devastating defense round and I recommend it in any 45 acp firearm and especially in short barreled ones. It would prove most formidable in a long barrel carbine as well.
great ammo but bang for your buck...ehhh
I will never knock hornady ammo I love it with the exception of ine factor I have carried this anf their critical defence line and cant really justify the $2.00 markup per box except in the situation that the store I go to pick this up at only has zmax instead of critical defence. I have shot this out of a Remington R1 many times at cantaloupe just to decide which has better terminal ballistics... they both are devistating and I would carry either any day
Kinda cool - But this is the same as the Red Tip Ammo
This is the same Hornady ammo they sell in the 185 grain pack, with the red tip, they just made this tip Zombie green. It's still quality ammo, accurately and deadly. The idea of the tip in the hollow point makes a difference and gets further into soft tissue without expanding too quickly.
Good ammo from a good distributor.
Watch em' Pop!
Wow, I can honestly say that I haven't ever had ammo that made Zombies heads explode better. I will never pack anything other than this ammo. Zombie invasions are becoming more and more common these days and you don't want any cut rate ammo in your trusty .45. Leave the ball ammo at home, this ammo literally decapitated 7 out of 10 Zombies in my last attack!
