Hornady was founded in 1944 by Joyce Hornady whose motto of “ten rounds through one hole” spoke directly to his desire to produce only high-quality, reliable ammunition. Joyce Hornady was a marksmanship instructor during World War II, and after the war ended he noticed the ammunition flooding the market wasn’t performing reliably for sport shooters or hunters. His solution to the problem was to make better ammunition himself, so he started with a .30-caliber bullet and worked his way out from there. Today Hornady is a trusted name in ammunition, and they’re well known for their superior quality.
These Hornady rounds are made for your 9mm. At 135 grain they’re medium weight for the cartridge size, putting them in that happy middle ground where they’re light enough for good speed and heavy enough to pack a nice punch. These are Hornady Critical Duty rounds which have their special polymer insert in the nose of the round to encourage uniform expansion without clogging and also have Hornady’s FlexLock feature which locks the core and jacket together for maximum weight retention and excellent penetration. These rounds expand on impact to create a devastating wound channel.
Each of these rounds has impressive speed with a muzzle velocity of 1010 feet per second and muzzle energy of 306 foot-pounds. They’re specifically designed for superior self-defense. When you order this box of ammo from Hornady you get 250 9mm Critical Duty rounds so you can keep your gun and spare mags loaded and ready for personal protection and also get in a fair amount of training time at the range. Hornady manufactures this ammunition at their factory in Grand Island, Nebraska.
