Hornady® Critical Defense® Handgun Ammo
I have shot some Double Taps with a lot more energy that performed better and were less money. The recoil was more than a 230 gr. FMJ, with smaller bullet. Not sure yet which I will carry. Was hoping for a lighter recoil for indoor defense situations. The 9mm CD is fantastic. The .45 I bought I am not yet convinced on.

Deadly and Accurate
Bought the ammo for my wife's new Ruger LCR. Most of the ammo I have been testing had too much bite for this gun. My wife shot up a whole box of this ammo without a complaint and the ballistics jell test show this ammo to be an effective self defense ammo. Bought 3 more boxes.

Aftern firing about 250 rounds of Hornaday 9MM I am exceptionally satisfied with their performance. Never a misfire and consistent groupings were experienced. I reach for Hornaday 9MM when shopping for that caliber.

An excellent personal defense round
I really liked what I saw from both Hornady's and independent test results for Critical Defense. It's one of my 3 or 4 favorite personal defense rounds that I keep loaded in various calibers.
