Hornady Critical Defense - .45 ACP, 185gr, FTX, Box of 20 (90900)

Availability: In stock (8)

Since their inception, conventional hollow point pistol bullets have performed well, but have never delivered 100% reliable. The patented Flex Tip technology used in Critical Defense ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. Hornady chieved this by using the same tip material as used in LEVERevolution ammunition.

All Critical Defense ammunition is loaded in nickel cases for increased visibility in low-light situations. Premium low flash propellants deliver proven performance, even in very shortbarreled handguns, and won't disrupt your vision. Reliable expansion and dependable terminal performance can be counted on.

Law enforcement and tactical professionals now have a truly advanced, 21st century handgun ammunition solution that delivers the most consistent and reliable urban barrier performance ever created! The proven Flex Tip design of the new FlexLock bullet eliminates clogging and aids bullet expansion. Its large mechanical jacket-to-core InterLock band works to keep the bullet and core from separating for maximum weight retention and proven terminal performance through all FBI test barriers.


  • FTX Bullet Technology - The patented FTX bullet expands reliably and resists clogging when fired through heavy clothing.
  • Defense-Centered Design - Critical Defense ammunition was developed to provide the best performance for defensive or personal protection situations and is the ultimate choice for any short barreled, concealed carry style firearm. Bright nickel-plated cartridge cases simplify chamber checks in reduced light, and low-flash propellants help preserve night vision.
  • Dependable - Details such as nickel-plated cases that resist corrosion and optimized propellants that burn quickly to reduce recoil and limit muzzle flash, help ensure that Critical Defense ammo is dependable in every situation.
