Designed for short-range defensive situations, a new breed of FTX® bullets are at the forefront of the Critical Defense® Rifle ammunition line. The bullet’s patented Flex Tip® not only helps keep the nose cavity free from clogging as it passes through heavy clothing but also helps the bullet expand at low velocities.
- FTX Bullet Technology: Thanks to its patented Flex Tip, the FTX expands reliably while avoiding the clogging that can plague other hollow point bullets when passing through heavy clothing and other barriers.
- Defense-Centered Design: Critical Defense ammunition was developed to provide the best performance for personal protection and is the ultimate choice for concealed carry firearms or self defense rifles. Bright nickel-plated cartridge cases ease chamber checks in reduced light, and low-flash propellants preserve night vision.
- Dependable: Nickel-plated cases resist corrosion and optimized propellants burn quickly to reduce recoil and limit muzzle flash, making Critical Defense dependable in every situation.
