This is a no-nonsense self-defense 40 S&W round that champions reliability and fundamental design over absolute performance, because, if your gun doesn’t function when you call upon it in a personal defense situation what good is the gelatin test or the engineering of the projectile. Hornady has selected premium components and set about to make a premium round capable of combining great ballistics with unmatched consistency in manufacture. They take proven reliable pieces and fit them together into a round that is the equivalent of a factory handloaded cartridge.
There are better performing rounds in ballistic tests. There are better penetrating rounds and better mushrooming rounds and rounds that recoil less and those that go faster. But when it comes to knowing that no detail was spared in the putting together of the ammunition so that it’s the most likely to ignite, and allow you to react to a threat, Hornady custom is a choice that you cannot overlook.
The point is that they load each round to such an exacting standard, that when it’s crunch time, you know it’s that much more likely to be the bullet that saves your life. It goes bang, and the next one is ready for action every single time. Few commercial factories can claim this level of intense scrutiny on the production line.
