Whether it's five shots from the cylinder of your NAA Mini Magnum Revolver or 30 rounds from your Kel-Tec PMR-30's magazine, you'll get the highest potential out of each shot when you load with this Critical Defense ammo from Hornady. Hornady is an American company that has built a reputation over the last 70 years for their unique projectile designs and valuable finished loads. The Critical Defense is manufactured with concealed carry in mind, and gives shooters an excellent option for self-defense in a wide range of calibers. These .22 Magnum cartridges are no different and feature 45-grain Flex Tip Expanding (FTX) projectiles that are intended to deliver heavy damage to a threat target.

FTX bullets are constructed like premium hollow-point rounds with a wide cavity and deep jacket skiving for expansion in a target; this expansion slows the bullet, allowing it to pass on its energy to nerve centers and other vital areas for quick, positive stops. The addition of the flexible tip which fills the bullet's hollow cavity helps the projectile to overcome thick clothing like leather or denim without clogging which could otherwise ruin expansive capability. Hornady builds this load using nickel-plated rimfire brass casings that repel sweat & corrosion while adding a level of smoothness to feeding and extraction. Buying in bulk with this 2000-round case allows a shooter to get plenty of mild-recoiling practice while also using the round for effective varmint removal.

A: Hi! The muzzle velocity of this Hornady round is 1000 fps. This generated 100 ft-lbs of energy at the muzzle. One of the best features of the Critical Defense ammo is the low-flash propellant. This is even more beneficial in the small, mini-revolvers and other short barreled handguns.
