Reviews
Hornady Critical Defense .45 ACP 185 Grain FTX Ammo, 20 rounds is rated 4.8913 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Self Defense I purchased these rounds for self defense purposes only, in my opinion Hornady Critical Defense loads is some of the best rounds for defense. I'm very pleased with my purchase, and the right I paid for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent defense ammo I have Hornady Critical Defense in .38 spl, .357 mag, 9mm and .380 auto as well. It's the "go-to" defense cartridge. Hard to beat it and at great SG prices. I bought this ammo along with a couple boxes of Hardball, for my very recently purchased (from SG) Rock Island Arms 1911 Compact.
