Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended! Bought these after a Casual Meeting with a Friend who is a Retired State Police Lt, Who now works school security. He mentioned them while we talked about what load out we used for Home Defense. He said these were ALL he carried in Several Different Calibers in Various Handguns

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defensive perfection I purchased these about a month ago. I believe Hornady Critical Defense is by far the best defensive ammo available. I'm shooting them out of a compact 1911. I've had trouble feeding with other hallow point rounds but these have been flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic Just ran 50 through a very old Glock 21 that has probably had 10s of thousands of rounds run through it. No FTFs/FTLs/FTE's and they land where I shoot it. Haven's hit any flesh with it and hope I never have to, but..................I like it Clean too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks like it will do th job. I bought this for my carry weapon and what I like was the way the tip is made. Keeping th mushroom on the end would really help the bullet serve it's purpose.

I have the distinct misfortune of living in NJ. Hollow point ammo outside of your home is a felony. Is this Critical Deffnse ammo hollow point or because it's got a red plug is it considered round-nose?

Asked by: Alferr
To the best of my knowledge (and I am not an attorney in New Jersey) it is not considered a hollow point in NJ. As far as I know the Hornady Critical Defense, Corbon Powerball, and Federal Expanding FMJ are all legal in New Jersey. But again, I am not located in New Jersey nor am I an attorney.
