Hornady Critical Duty vs Critical Defense

Critical DUTY-2013 Packaging     VS      Critical-Defense-packaging

We are often asked what the difference is between the Critical Defense and Critical Duty lines of ammunition from Hornady. Critical Defense is for short barrel guns where barrier penetration is not important and reducing over-penetration risk is. Critical Duty is for LE missions where you would like a “barrier blind” bullet that will still expand and penetrate after punching through intermediate obstacles.
