Hornady #90225 9MM LUGER+P 135 gr FlexLock® Critical DUTY®
Hornady #90225. Factory-sealed case of 500 rounds. One case contains ten 50 round boxes.
Hornady® has been awarded a Fixed
Price Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement with the
Federal Bureau of Investigation for its 9mm+P Luger 135 gr. FlexLock® Critical Duty® ammunition.
Law enforcement and tactical professionals now have a truly
advanced, 21st century handgun ammunition solution that delivers the
most consistent and reliable urban barrier performance ever created!
The proven Flex Tip® design of the new FlexLock® bullet
eliminates clogging and aids bullet expansion. Its large mechanical
jacket-to-core InterLock® band works to keep the bullet and
core from separating for maximum weight retention and proven terminal
performance through all FBI test barriers.
"I happened to look at Doc's approved carry load list today to recommend ammo for someone and noticed that the Hornady 135 Gr +P was added to the acceptable 9MM loads."
"Things keep getting tested and refined. In some recent LE agency testing, the 9 mm +P CD performed a bit better. That is why the list is a "living" item that gets updated as things change..."Dr. Gary Roberts
"It is strongly recommended that LE agencies approve at least two
similar loads from different manufacturers, to help ensure a consistent
supply of ammunition in times of scarcity. In other words, if an agency
adopts HST, it would be prudent to also approve a load with similar
terminal performance, like Ranger Talon or loads using Barnes Tac-XP
projectiles; alternatively, if an agency adopted Speer G2, it would be
smart to also authorize Hornady Critical Duty or Winchester bonded
loads, as they will perform in like fashion." Dr. Gary Roberts
"I do know that Dallas PD switched wholesale to Critical Duty though." pistol-forum.com
"As the guys at Hornady informally put it: “Critical Defense ammo is for us. Critical Duty ammo is for cops."" Handgunsmag.com
1) FLEXLOCK® BULLET incorporates two revolutionary
Hornady features: the patented Flex Tip® that initiates consistent
expansion every single time while preventing any clogging, and the heavy
duty InterLock® band that locks the jacket and core together.
2) CANNELURED BULLET WITH CRIMPED CASE
ensures no bullet setback during feeding.
3) INTERLOCK® BAND works
to keep the bullet and core from separating for maximum weight
retention and proven terminal performance through all FBI test barriers.
4) CORE is made of high-antimony
lead making it extremely tough, delivering controlled expansion for
unparalleled terminal performance consistency through all FBI test
barriers. It’s also more economical than similar bonded
5) NICKEL-PLATED CASES resist
corrosion and greatly enhance low-light chamber checks.
Critical DUTY® = Tactical
Critical DUTY® handgun ammunition is built to meet the needs and
requirements of LAW ENFORCEMENT and TACTICAL PROFESSIONALS, as well as
those law abiding
citizens who prefer a full-size handgun for their
personal protection and demand superior barrier penetration and
subsequent terminal performance.*
FlexLock® bullets loaded in all Critical DUTY® offerings are rugged,
heavy jacketed bullets that deliver virtually “barrier blind”
performance (i.e. total penetration, weight retention and expansion are
practically the same) when shot through common urban barriers* (bare
gelatin, auto glass, sheet metal, plywood, drywall, heavy clothing*). In
addition, Critical DUTY® loads are “full power loads” designed to
function full-size handgun slides. Although designed to work flawlessly
in ALL handguns,
these loads are NOT optimized for short barreled,
concealed carry style handguns
; they will deliver standard recoil during
