I purchased.45ACP Hornady Critical Defense for 1911 A1 and my Bersa Thunderer. They are in the clips now.

Finally I'm able to refresh my supply. I've been on Bud's website for years and finally pulled the trigger on ammo.Shipping was as fast as supply would allow. Hornady is my preferred carry round for my 380acp.I will be purchasing from Bud's again.

Shot these out of my Ruger American .45acp and OMG did these do some damage to my targets. I shot some pumpkins and watermelons and even though some ballistics gel. These rounds annihilated all of them. It was really fun to watch the targets explode on impact very, very, very, loud round to shoot though. These rounds seemed to kick the decibel up a notch.

This round will definitely stop an intruder. Getting harder to find descent ammo in this pandemic.just needed some just in case, you never know.

I bought this ammo in .45 ACP to run in my new Les Baer. It didn't disappoint. Left one ragged hole in the bullseye at 20 yards. For my age and my eyesight at my age, I am more than satisfied.

Really disappointed in this ammo ! It jammed in a couple of my guns that have never jammed with any other ammo and a couple of misfires where the primer was dented in more than enough for it to fire ! Not going to be my CC ammo !

Seems to be an o.k. round, but I did have one mis-fire with the box that I shot. Primer was dented plenty deep enough, but the shell did not fire.

I have two 1911's and both dislike the gaping hollow points. The Hornady CRITICAL DEFENSE rounds work perfect however so these are my carry rounds.

Price was good. Have not shot yet and saw good ratings over the internet

Cycle well in an old Taurus, that has problems with some JHPs.

I use Hornady Critical Defense for all my handguns when storing them for self defense. I cycled through a full magazine worth and had absolutely no issues with any of my pistols.

What can you say? Line up the stars! All 5 of them. I have not had one shell do anything out of the ordinary, I have about 5 boxes remaining, But I would make a little wager they are 100% all the way. I will say you can feel and especially hear the difference in this ammo, It is like a lion compared to the 165gr. kittens I was using! I have a few clips for these shells, and I have not tried any of this ammo with a factory clip! All I can say is, Protect your ears in continuous firing! And you will have no complaints!!

Just like the 9mm, great ammo and design by Hornady who lives up to its name and reputation. Flex Tip design is awesome.
