20rds – 223 Rem Hornady Critical Defense 73gr. FTX Ammo Details

A Hornady Critical Defense round boasts a number of features that make it the one to reach for when it’s your life that’s on the line. This 223 Rem cartridge’s Boxer primer is super sensitive and non-corrosive, and its brass casing’s nickel plating facilitates cycling in a semi-automatic and prevents corrosion as well. It’s this round’s impressive FTX projectile that really steals the show, however.

This round’s bullet possesses Hornady’s own Flex Tip, a shaft of polymer that keeps heavy fabric from clogging the hollow point nose cavity in which it sits. The Flex Tip is soft, and it smooshes downward during penetration in order to commence wide expansion. This particular FTX weighs a whopping 73 grains, so it’s inherently better able to penetrate deeply than a lighter 223 Rem bullet, and its InterLock ring does a heroic job of keeping its jacket and high antimony lead core together as it does so. Finally, the FTX’s secant ogive profile improves its ballistic coefficient for better accuracy.
