A new take on personal defense ammunition that combines tried and true methodologies with innovative improvements on all aspects. Made by a premium producer, this Hornady Critical Duty ammunition is the premium choice in the heavy grain .45ACP market.
The 220 grain projectile features a polymer insert that controls expansion and ensures that proper expansion and bullet dynamics are executed in the proper phase of the self defense scenario. Call it “barrier blind”, call it “smart”, call it what you will; when a cartridge performs this well, it’s called excellent. This unique load showcases the newest and best of the Hornady R&D team innovations without adding a bunch of stuff that no one wants.
The premium brass is coated in a nickel plating to shed powder, aid in reliable feeding and differentiate cartridge cases. The premium primer offers sure ignition and allows for easy reloading. The premium powder used is clean and burns all the way through consistently; while offering a small range of deviation on velocity and accuracy. Are you seeing a trend here? “Premium” is what this load exudes in all aspects of the build and performance matrix.
