TNOutdoors9 classic

I saw this back in the day from one of tnoutdoors9's sim ballistics test, did very well, plus Gunprime had it on sale recently so I picked up three boxes and had them at my house within four days of my original order.

Pleased with result and manufacturer

I first started using the Hornary Critical Defense 40 / 165 grain round after purchasing a S&W M2.0 in 2019 prior to hunting season. I used up what I had on the range, and this purchase was to replace my stock. I've found that it is a consistent round, and hold spec from box to box. After running 90 rounds downrange, I cleaned the M2.0 and it was like I had not fired as many rounds. Until something better comes out which is better, I will be buying the Critical Defense 40 / 165 grain. I use this gun, and rounds, as backup when boar hunting.

All Hornady products are great! Never had any issues with misfires or jams. Highly recommend ammo in the clutch. Also, after many many rounds does not seem to be as trashy or dirty as some other. Clean up is a breeze.

Quick and easy

Product arrived quickly and in good condition, which is sometimes rare these days. Will use again.

Nothing negative

Hornady is a superior ammo maker in my opinion! Muzzle energy of 500 ft. lbs. with 40 caliber is outstanding! Runs flawlessly in my Springfield EMP .
