Federal nyclad vs. Hornady critical defense 38 Special ammo?
I was wondering if anyone here knows which of these two 38 special loads in better for defense? I know shot placement is the key,but want the best performing standard pressure ammo I can get. Have there been any reliability issues with the critical defense loads? For those here who have tried the .38 special critical defense loads,what did you think of them?
I've been wondering how the hornaday critical defense standard pressure ammo has done in tests? Likewise I'd like similar info on th federal nyclads rounds that were recently reintroduced. I ask as I'm awaiting delivery of my 1952 Colt cobra and need a good non +p load for carry for it,thanks for any help guys.
Testing Hornady 110Gr 38 SP expansion
Through water only the bullet expanded and went through 16 inches of water. Through denim the bullet did not expand and went through 33 inches of water. Check out my test results on this and other ammo at Bullet Expansion Through Denim Test
