    I use FTX bullets exclusively in .30-30 for hunting wild hogs, and I also carry them in my .44 Mag sidearm when I'm hunting. They are amazing bullets for hunting, but I have no experience with them for SD or in semiauto pistol calibers.

    Great rds, all I can do is tell you my own experiences with hornady, after 40 + years of shooting most platforms an weapons any time you come up against a ammo sensitive weapon try hornady they have fed reliably in any weapon I have tried, which in MHO is half the battle.

    I have only shot the Hornady Critical Defense...Critical Duty...and TAP. My gun feeds all of those without an issue.

    From what type of pistol, and for what purpose? For law enforcement purposes, it's not recommended. For a short-barrel (3") concealed carry pistol, Critical Defense performs very well according to my tests.

    Good stuff in my book .. Most any gun will feed it ... And if you believe the hype the tip lessen the chance of the HP being clogged by clothing etc
