Hornady has engineered these 12 gauge shells for excellent reliability in any home defense shotgun whether it be pump-action or semi-automatic. Each round consists of a high brass head, and clean-igniting 209 primer, and a moisture-resistant hull. The 2-3/4 inch length hull is compatible with a wide range of scatterguns and has a raised and rolled edge above its star crimp for seamless, snag-free loading. Inside the shell are eight, 00 size buckshot pellets which are protected by Hornady's Versatite wad. The Versatite wad is manufactured using the same licensed specifications as Federal's Titegroup wad and delivers extremely small diameter patterns out to impressive distance.


This is achieved by the wad's forward cup which protects the shot pellets from flat spotting and doesn't separate until after about five to ten yards of travel distance. The result is a tight pattern of .33 caliber balls that exhibit devastating terminal effect on a threat with minimal chance of landing outside of an IPSC or IDPA target out to 25 yards. Hornady has nearly half a century of experience in manufacturing top tier components and finished ammunition. Their Critical Defense line is intended to provide private citizens with affordable ammunition derived from proven duty loads and enhanced by modern innovation.
