    I just use Hornady TAP rounds personally. I carry a 45 ACP and it doesn't look like the Critical Defense comes in that caliber.

    Yes, I'd like to hear a few different reviews. The sales hype you have to take with a grain of salt.

    Hornady Critical defense ammo

    I think it is a good idea.
    It is a truncated leverlution, so it should work well.

    Hello. If interested, here are some observations and informal "tests" run a while back on the std. pressure .38 Special and .380 ACP:

    Thanks Stephen. I'd been considering these in standard pressure in an old 6" K-frame which is sort of the home "back up" pistol. I suspect the standard pressure loads from this barrel might be pretty respectable.
