My latest purchase!

The price of ammo these days forces me to combat prices by reloading and looking for the deal! Yard sales swap meet and Armslist etc. I picked this up for $50.00 I cannot reload this ammo for that price. It is mostly self defense ammunition. I will store them in my Powder Magazine!

I like the looks of that Hornady Critical Defense 220 grain flexlock +P.
Does anybody have any experience with it?

That looks like Critical "DUTY" ammo. It's a step up from the Critical Defense. It's +P and has better penetration through some barriers. It's more like critical "OFFENSE" .

You are absolutely right Cucu I did not look past he D I guess. I does look like nasty ammo. I think I will put some In my Ultra Carry II I keep handy.

That's the same stuff I didn't carry in my Solo.

I know a guy who has been shooting some of that critical duty and he said it's pretty vicious stuff

Good stuff. But you donít use it for plinking for sure. Stuff normally goes for $25 and up. When we get new guns, we throw some of that through to make sure it functions religiously. If yes, load up some mags and self defense only. Too expensive to waste in other words.
