Hornady is temporarily loading this ammo with non-plated brass cases due to the current unavailability of nickel.

Premium .380 ACP defensive ammunition that has a lot going for it, the Critical Defense with FTX load by Hornady is a .380 Auto cartridge that provides better penetration, better velocity and better performance than its peers. The .380 is a strong contender for backup and even full-time carry weapons contemporaneously. This is because it hits hard enough and carries well enough to make legitimate sense for many CCW holders. This Critical Defense FTX is the type of ammunition that makes the .380, which was once thought of as an underpowered round, a resurgent powerhouse in the concealed carry world.

This Hornady ammunition exits the muzzle at 1000 feet per second and offers 200 ft. lbs. of energy which is a sufficient round for much of what a concealed carrier will come up against. The particulars of this load make it very good at day to day encounters where different layers of clothes or other mitigating circumstances might threaten to weaken your engagement in a defensive situation. The polymer piece in the hollow point helps to give proper penetration in varied conditions and ensure proper expansion and uniformity, thereby producing a .380 ACP round that offers sufficient stopping power when it counts.

A: Thanks for reaching out Steven! Just to be sure, we don't actually manufacture ammunition. Hornady made this ammo – we are just retailing it. Nickel plating does enhance brass's corrosion resistance, but so long as ammo is stored properly its brass cases will remain functional indefinitely. (We just recently sold WWI military surplus ammunition that was still perfectly functional.) The key to ammo longevity is to keep it away from moisture, humidity, light and temperature fluctuations. I recommend storing your ammunition long-term in an ammo can with silica gel desiccant packets. We just so happen to have both in stock: https://www.bulkammo.com/bulk-ammo-cans

A: Thank you for reaching out sir! You haven't found this ammo's price tag because it is currently out of stock. We will include its price tag as soon as we get more in store.

I'm happy to say that we currently do have excellent 9mm self-defense ammo in stock: bulkammo.com/50-rounds-of-9mm-ammo-by-speer-147gr-jhp. It's $65.00 for 50 rounds.
