It always works in my PMR 30, and Hornady ammo has never failed in any of my handguns.

Hornady Best Self Defense Ammo around!
Glenn D on Dec 21, 2018
American Rifleman tests shows 15 inch penetration in ballistic gel which outperformed other 22 WMR brands. These self defense rounds are much more stout that regular CCI Maxi Max and other 22 WMR ammo.
ROBERT L. E on Dec 21, 2018
I find the Hornady FTX 45 grain .22WMR round to be the most accurate and consistent.22 WMR in my Kel Tec CMR-30.
Scott on Dec 20, 2018
Cmr-30. Enough said.
Cody S on Dec 20, 2018
Great ammo, have used it for years. Accurate, reliable, works well in my semi auto pistols.
Curry R on Dec 20, 2018
I have a Kel-Tec PMR-30 pistol; this pistol is extremely light and the magazine holds 30 rounds. This defensive ammo would help to make this extremely light pistol an even better trail gun to carry around at a fraction of the weight of a 'regular' pistol.
Michael on Dec 20, 2018
fast, flat, super accurate with match barrel
Ronald Q on Dec 9, 2018
I want to test it in my .22 magnum pistols and rifles. It’s a product I’ve never seen before.
Stephen C on Dec 5, 2018
Top grade ammo for my Kel-Tec CMR30 at a price that couldn't be beat.
Leonard H on Dec 4, 2018
After researching the item and other potential suppliers Grab A Gun had the product at a slightly better price as well as cheaper shipping charges overall.
Jeffrey R on Dec 1, 2018
Trying this out in my NAA mini revolver.
Steven J on Nov 28, 2018
Hornady ammunition is by far the best for the job. They flow through my Kel-Tec CMR & PMR without fail. Reliability and accuracy is everything! The price at Grab A Gun is good except the shipping. Shipping of $13 SUCKS.

Added to order for flat rate shipping
Eric O on Nov 14, 2018
JAMES H on Nov 14, 2018
I have a pmr 30 and the 30 grain jams sometimes. I am hoping the 45 will eject better
Sherry W on Nov 10, 2018
Never shot them. They had good reviews for pmr-30 and cmr-30 so I want to try them.
Dwight T on Oct 7, 2018
Needed high velocity rounds for a keltec semi auto pistol. Hornady is considered to be top of the line
Franklin on Oct 6, 2018
This ammo cycles through the Kel-Tec 30 pistol nicely

Velocity not as advertised
Clocked at 1545 fps instead of the advertised 1700 fps. Expands well but penetration suffers compared to standard 40 grain HP CCI and Winchesters.

Quality and Powerful Ammo
Typical Hornady ammo; reliable ammo that goes bang and good accuracy. This would be a deadly round.

Hornady .22 WMR Critical Defense Rounds
These Hornady .22 WMR rounds are very accurate in my Kel Tec CMR 30 even out to 100 yards. GrabAGun’s sale on these rounds plus their very reasonable flat rate for shipping made for a great deal.

Great ammo
Super fast shipping. Came as ordered. Works great in my CMR and PMR 30- just have to down load the mag for the CMR to 20 to ensure reliability- bummer but ”thems the breaks”....

Ammo is spot on
After reading a number of negative reviews about Grab a Gun and their poor service I was reluctant to place an order with them. I thought though I would try it and pray for the best.
I placed the order and it arrived without a hitch!
Hornady Critical Defense is perfect too. They feed through my Kel-Tec CMR and PMR like a knife through butter. Eat your heart out CCI. Hornady from now on.

IF there was ever a caliber where bullet TOTALLY CHANGED outcome, especially value of a caliber being used for self defense. SEE REMARKS UNDER HORNADY CRITICAL DEFENSE 38spl 110GR FTX.

Shooting a 2" thick phone book with Winchester 40gr JHP or FMJ, has 22 cal hole on front cover and dime size + hole on back cover,. Other polymer tip 22mag ammo is MAJOR improvement in destruction, same 22cal hole on front cover, BUT you'll see a TWO (2) INCH CAVITY blown out in back cover. Small wow.

FIRING HORNADY CRITICAL DEFENSE HAS 22 cal hole on front like all 22 ammo, THEN you'll see a 3" and LARGER hole blown out back side, Shooting a Toaster Oven metal floor panel, the HOLES are 38 cal NOT 22 cal,, expansion is so rapid after hitting a Hard Steel surface, the Exit Hole is 38 cal,, a real WOW,

FYI: feeds and functions just fine in KelTec PMR-30 pistol, having 30-round mags (Do NOT load more than 25-rounds in magazine IF YOU WANT RELIABILITY (even left loaded for three months, having 25-rounds in 30-round mag remains reliable. RULE provided to students taking Personal Protection Course to obtain CCW AND customers in friends gunsmith store was DOWNLOAD MAGAZINES BY ONE (1) MINIMUM OR 15%, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
Example: 7-round 1911 mag use 6-rounds, 30-round AR15 magazine, 15% of 30 is 4.5 or 5 rounds= LOAD 25-rounds, and so on. Works plus it is prudent to change out magazine- loading rounds into Empty Mag from Loaded Mag every month or so (more frequent is NEVER a bad thing) Magazine springs can and WILL develop weakness when kept fully loaded for too long a period of time- ESPECIALLY when FULLY compressed, and when too weak, follower will not be lifted to correct position, causing feeding problem, ending with CLICK instead of a BANG. Been practicing a failure to feed drills lately? Write your review here. It must be at least 20 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like about it.
