Sbh, I'm one of those belt-and-suspenders geezers who clings to stuff that's been proven in the field. I've been very pleased with what I've personally seen of the accuracy and quality control in the Hornady Critical Defense. In a revolver, it has the advantage of a pointy bullet shape that actually expands, making for very fast speed reloads when it's used as spare ammunition.
LAPD was apparently very impressed with the .380 version of the Critical Defense in testing, since I'm told it's now the approved load for that caliber in backup and off duty guns. Therefore, I expect we'll soon have a data base from that source on how it works on the street. LAPD is a "busy shop."
It would probably also be my choice if I was carrying in New Jersey on one of the rare concealed carry permits issued in that state, since hollow points are forbidden for public carry there except by law enforcement, though they may be used for home and store defense.
On the street, I personally stay with rounds that have been in the field long enough to develop a solid reputation for getting the job done: 125 grain Magnum full loads in the .357, 158 grain lead hollow point +P or Speer 135 grain +P in the .38 Special, that sort of thing.
Wishing you the best whatever your choice,
