Product Details

BRAND: Hornady

9mm Luger 115 gr FTX Critical Defense

Since their inception, conventional hollow point pistol bullets have performed well, but have never delivered 100% reliability, especially in self-defense situations. The patented Flex Tip technology used in Critical Defense ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. Hornady achieved this by using the same tip material used in LEVERevolution ammunition.

All Critical Defense ammunition is loaded in nickel-plated cases for increased visibility in low-light situations. Premium low flash propellants deliver proven performance, even in very short-barreled handguns, and won't disrupt your vision. Reliable expansion and dependable terminal performance can be counted on for concealed carry and personal protection.

NOTICE: Temporary suspension of nickel plated cartridge cases for Critical Defense Handgun Ammunition 5/25/21

Unfortunately, everyone is faced with production bottlenecks and supply chains are stressed. In particular, the freight system is delayed longer than normal. Our current turnaround time on nickel plating cartridge cases is 4+ weeks. This delay has created a significant bottleneck in the production of ammunition.

Due to these issues, Hornady willl suspend nickel plating on all Critical Defense handgun ammunition to help reduce production time. Please note, this is a temporary suspension. We will review in six months and plan to resume nickel plating when things return to normal.
