Hornady Critical Duty 9mm +P 135gr FlexLock Ammo
Hornady Critical Duty 9mm +P 135gr FlexLock ammunition is a specialized self-defense round engineered to provide reliable performance in critical situations. Here’s a detailed product description:
- +P Pressure: The “+P” designation indicates that this ammunition is loaded to higher pressure levels than standard 9mm rounds. This extra pressure results in increased muzzle velocity and energy, which can enhance terminal performance. However, it’s essential to ensure that your firearm is rated for +P ammunition before use.
- 135-Grain FlexLock Bullet: The 135-grain FlexLock bullet is designed for controlled expansion and reliable penetration. It features a patented Flex Tip design, which initiates expansion upon impact, creating wide and consistent wound channels while retaining weight for deep penetration.
- Critical Duty Design: Hornady’s Critical Duty ammunition is specifically engineered for use by law enforcement and self-defense applications. It is rigorously tested to meet the demanding performance requirements of these roles.
- Barrier Blind: The FlexLock bullet is designed to perform reliably even when passing through common barriers such as glass, clothing, and heavy clothing. This ensures that the round retains its effectiveness in real-world self-defense scenarios.
- Superior Terminal Ballistics: The combination of controlled expansion and deep penetration results in superior terminal ballistics. This ammunition is designed to incapacitate threats effectively while minimizing the risk of over-penetration.
- Nickel-Plated Brass Cases: Hornady uses high-quality, reloadable nickel-plated brass cases for this ammunition. The nickel plating enhances corrosion resistance and facilitates smooth feeding and extraction.
- Consistent and Reliable Ignition: Hornady employs high-quality primers and propellants to ensure consistent and reliable ignition, which is crucial for self-defense ammunition.
- Versatile Use: While designed primarily for self-defense, this ammunition can also be suitable for concealed carry and personal protection purposes.
- Caliber: This ammunition is chambered for 9mm, one of the most popular self-defense and concealed carry calibers due to its manageable recoil and widespread availability.
Hornady Critical Duty 9mm +P 135gr FlexLock ammunition is an excellent choice for individuals seeking reliable self-defense ammunition with superior terminal ballistics. Its specialized design, controlled expansion, barrier-blind performance, and consistent ignition make it a trusted option for personal protection. However, it’s essential to ensure that your firearm is rated for +P ammunition before using it, and always follow safety guidelines when handling and storing ammunition.
