You, however, are quite at liberty to rely on 19th century technology for your personal protection. Maybe you’re a cowboy action shooting enthusiast, and naturally want to carry the same revolver you’ve spent so much time training on. If that’s the case, then Hornady Critical Defense is just the 45 Colt ammo for you.
This round’s 185 grain projectile is actually 21st century technology. The FTX is a jacketed hollow point, and a dependable one at that. Its 920 fps muzzle velocity out of a 3” vented barrel translates to 311 ft lbs striking energy at 50 yards, at which distance it will still undergo terminal expansion. And because the FTX’s nose cavity contains a supple polymer plug, it is equipped to pierce fabric without clogging up and becoming ineffective as a result.
The FTX’s polymer-plugged nose cavity is safe for lever-action rifles, and the nickel-plated brass case it is seated in will promote smoother operation in any type of firearm. And thanks to Hornady’s low-flash propellant, you can trust this self-defense ammo to avoid blinding you if you fire it in the dark.
