Only Ammo I Trust With My Life!
How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
This is the only ammo I use. I actually did a ballistics gel test of my own with Hornady critical defense and it showed to have the best results out of the other few brands I tried. This is the only ammo I choose for EDC.
Do you think this item is a good value?
Just like anything else, it would be great if it was cheaper, but I do believe Hornady Critical Defense is worth every penny.
Please give your general opinion of this product.
Great stuff. I've even convinced a few of my friends to carry this round as well.
