Product Information

Hornady Critical Defense Lite Ammunition for the 38 Special was purpose built for defensive handgun use and is designed to deliver reliable and controlled expansion regardless of the target every time. Critical Defense Lite Ammunition is loaded with Hornady's  bullet which has a soft polymer insert that delivers superior controlled expansion and large, deep wound cavities over a wide range of velocities. Each round is loaded into a nickel plated brass case for increased visibility in low-light situations and premium low flash propellants that deliver proven performance, even in very short-barreled handguns that will not disrupt night vision. This load was developed for any shooter looking to minimize felt recoil of their lightweight, compact, personal protection revolver.

One of the unique features of this bullet is the PINK tip and pink ribbon packaging, Hornady is going to donate a portion of the proceeds on the sale of this ammunition to help fund breast cancer research.

  • Exhibits minimal muzzle flash protect night vision
