Problem with Hornady Critical Defense

I bought 4 boxes of the new Hornady Critical Defense ammo in 9mm. Yesterday I got a chance to try it out and what a disappointment!! One out of every 3 rounds was a misfire. The hammer left pronounced indentations on the primers but the rounds were duds. Some I even put back in and tried again with the same result. Now I had two hammer indentations on the primer but no fire! :barf:
Today I went to the range and with the same gun (Kahr CW9) I fired my normal carry round, Speer Gold Dot 124 gr. with not a single misfire. Then I ran 50 rounds of Federal American Eagle hard ball with again, not a single misfire.
I'm going to contact Hornady for a refund but needless to say, I would never carry their Critical Defense round.

We don't guarantee any of our guns to run with this ammo. The rubber tip is a disaster.

Too many other great choices to mess with this ammo. :)

Get proven SD ammo like, Speer Gold Dot, Federal HST, Golden Saber Bonded.

Here's a link you need to read.
