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.
