    Mas,

    Do you have any opinion on the new Hornady Critical Defense Rifle .223 round? It comes in two weights... 55gr and 73gr with the FTX projectile. This new cartridge has peaked my interest as a home defense option.

    I doubt there’s been a self defense situation where it’s been used yet, but the design seems solid.

    Thanks

    You put your finger on the one problem, bro: if it hasn't been used in the field yet, you become the beta tester/guinea pig to see if it works.
    Best,
