FTX® BULLET TECHNOLOGY
The unique design of the Critical Defense® FTX® bullet offers quick expansion and limited penetration from self-defense rifles.
Silver nickel-plated cases feed smoothly and are more visible for chamber checks in low-light situations. Additives blended with propellants reduce flash to maintain night vision.
Details such as nickel-plated cases that resist corrosion and optimized propellants that burn quickly to reduce recoil and limit muzzle flash, help ensure that Critical Defense® ammo is dependable in every situation.
PERSONAL PROTECTION / CONCEALED CARRY
Critical Defense® handgun ammunition was developed to provide the best performance for DEFENSIVE or PERSONAL PROTECTION SITUATIONS and is the ultimate choice for any short barreled, concealed carry style firearm.
The FTX® bullets loaded in all Critical Defense® handgun ammunition are designed to expand and provide the terminal performance needed for close encounters often associated with personal protection situations. Given that, Critical Defense® is NOT intended for use in extreme (law enforcement) situations that require superior barrier performance.*
The FTX® bullet will expand reliably and will not clog like standard hollow point bullets when fired through heavy clothing.* Additionally, Critical Defense® ammunition IS optimized for short barreled, concealed carry style handguns and will not deliver excessive recoil and associated muzzle flip
When lives are on the line, only the best will do.
The best ammunition for personal defense just got better with the addition of Critical Defense® Rifle. Critical Defense® is engineered to deliver the pinnacle of threat-stopping power — even when environmental conditions aren’t on your side.
The FTX® — at the forefront of Critical Defense® — maximizes the potential of a hollow point bullet. Its patented Flex Tip® aids expansion and eliminates clogging when passing through clothing and barriers. Nickel-plated cases increase visibility in low light situations. Low-flash propellants won’t disrupt night vision and deliver consistent performance regardless of environmental conditions.
