Hollow point bullets don't always work when compromised by an attacker's clothing, especially denim and leather. NOT with Hornady® Critical Defense.® Its patented polymer Flex Tip® design always delivers big, controlled expansion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beermeister from Hornady makes great ammo, period. I shot a whole box out of my Makarov, no failures to feed and was accurate. Thanks to Sportsmans Guide for the price and fast delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bulletman from Excellent personal protection ammo for the Makarov!I have used these before, and saw them at Sportsmans guide at a great price. Bought a few more boxes. They will feed in even my most finicky FEG PA63 without fail. Great ammo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by John S from excellent ammo, good priceRecently bought a 1977 Polish (Radom) P-64, to use as a backup carry gun. 9X18mm Makarov ammunition is hard to find in local stores, especially defense ammo. Hornady Critical Defense was recommended highly, and I'm not disappointed. It shoots reliably, according to ballistic reports, it expands well. There aren't many varieties of 9X18 defense ammo, so I'm very pleased that this stuff performs so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikealfa from Best 9x18 Makarov Self Defense Round!0 failures in my IJ-70 Baikal carry pistol out of 50 rounds. Accurate, reliable, and good penetration and expansion judging from Youtube ballistics tests. If your defensive pistol shoots 9x18 Makarov, and it feeds reliably, this is the ammo for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cville7000 from No issues and very manageable recoilUsed these in a Polish P64 and was expecting harsh recoil. To my surprise the recoil was very manageable. I had fired a box of PPU and these seemed similar in recoil. I also had a box of Fiocchi and they were extremely hot, much worse than the Hornady.No issues feeding or any other issues for that matter.I didn't do any gel testing so I cannot help with any expansion performance info.
