Home Defense Ammo For Your AR15/10

For all users of an AR rifle for home defense. Have you seen the new ammo made by Hornady?
Hornady Critical Defense for Rifle, in .223 two bullet grains available and .308. I think they also have a .30carbine round.

You can’t go wrong with Hornady ammo.

Speer LE Gold Dot has also been around for quite some time. I have it in my ARs and it gets great rating.

This type of ammo is hard to find sometime. Quite often out of stock and like most defense ammo, not cheap either....

I looked for the Hornady to see what it goes for at midway it was 18+ change for twenty rounds and saw some listed with 73 grain tips.

I keep Hornady Black ammo on hand for home defense in both the AK & AR.

This new ammo may be better? Designed for short distance defense situations.
