Hornady® Critical Defense® Handgun Ammo
This ammo is amazing. I personally put it head to head with several other "top of the line" hollow points and personal defense rounds and Hornady won hands down. It maintains almost 100% retention while creating a wound cavity that is devestating. I replaced the ammo that I was using in my concealed carry weapon with the Hornady rounds the same day I performed the field tests. This ammo feeds well and has not given me any mechanical problems. It is also very affordable.

I have had a hard time finding pistol ammo due to the right to carry law change in our state. Exactly what I have been trying to get. Bass Pro is a great, dependable supplier of the needs of a true sportsman.

The ammo worked flawlessly in my Sig Sauer P238 .380 auto.

Hornady ammo has become my preferred ammo of choice when it comes to ammo that counts.
I have run the critical defense 380 ACP ammo through my Coyote Special Ruger LCP without issues and is the ammo that I keep in the chamber and mags while carrying (yes, I have my CHL). While I understand the limitations of the 380 ACP cartridge, I feel that the Hornady Critical Defense ammo makes the cartridge a viable choice in concealed carry so as I do not have to carry a larger frame firearm. In turn I carry more often as the firearm isn't any larger than my wallet or work smart phone.
I also keep the 45 ACP Hornady Critical Defense ammo in the mags for my 1911 at the house.

The 45 ACP was originaly designed for the military in 1911 for Knock Down power. However 100 years later the 357 mag will do the same job. I carry a Ruger GP100 (357 mag and .38) when in deep woods without a rifle.
