More From Hornady

07 Dec

Last year, Hornady released its Critical Defense® ammunition.  Originally beginning with .380 ACP (90 gr.) (for all of the new mouse guns that have been released in the last year), .38 Special/ +P (both 110 gr.), and 9mm (115 gr.). 

Recently they added .357 Magnum (125 gr.), .40 S&W (165 gr.) and .45 ACP (185 gr.).  I’d be interested to know why Hornady went with a 165 gr. .40 S&W rather than a 155 or 140.  I’d also be interested to know why they chose a 185 gr. .45.  Does anybody know?

    Reese: Being a realtively *new* owner of a .45 (Taurus PT145), my best estimation would be this round was designed more for CQB home defense.Still has excellent MV out of the tube, and doesn't lose much within the usual range inside a house, plus clothing of anything less than body armor isn't going to deflect or otherwise affect the bullet.Sounds like a winner to me…gonna put that on the SHORT Santa list.Thanks for the *411* on this.I might just give up my Hornady TAP ammo…lol(nah, just messin' with 'ya)
