Hornady® Critical Defense® 410 Ga 2 1/2″ Triple Defense (45 Cal NJFTX Slug/35 Cal Round Balls) 20 Round Box


SKU: HOR86238 Categories: ,

Delivering effective shot patterns that place all projectiles on a medium-sized target at seven yards, the Critical Defense® 410 features a unique Triple Defense® projectile column consisting of two 35 caliber round balls topped with one non-jacketed FTX® slug.

Unique to the Critical Defense® 410, the 41 caliber FTX® slug actually engages the gun’s rifling, and contacts the target nose-on, enabling the patented Hornady® Flex Tip® technology to assist in expansion for greatly enhanced terminal performance. Each 35 caliber round ball is made of high antimony, cold swaged lead to resist deformation and provide excellent penetration.


  • FTX® Bullet Technology
    • The unique design of the Critical Defense® FTX® bullet offers quick expansion and limited penetration from defense rifles.
  • Defense-Centered Design
    • Silver nickel-plated cases feed smoothly and are more visible for chamber checks in low-light situations. Additives blended with propellants reduce flash to maintain night vision.
  • Dependable
    • Details such as nickel-plated cases that resist corrosion and optimized propellants that burn quickly to reduce recoil and limit muzzle flash, help ensure that Critical Defense® ammo is dependable in every situation.
