Latest Hornady Critical Defense 380 test
For those that choose to carry a pocket 380, I thought I would share this latest test with you. One test isn't enough to establish a track record, but I was really surprised by how well the round tested. I'm really pleased with the heavy denim result.

Never confuse illegal with immoral. Beware of those who do.

It's nice to see a .380 JHP that actually expands and makes 12" in bare and clothed gelatin.
Looks like Hornady has a good round there.
Thanks for the test.

great job on your testing. thanks for sharing. i watched you're bare gel test comparing the z-max and the critical defense both did not penetrate as far as this one. any reason for this?

I noted you did a test of 9mm vs .380 Critical Defense, and in that test the .380 only did 10.5 inches.
I'm still sticking with flat point FMJ.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
