Hornady 10mm Critical Duty Ammo

    Ciritical Duty

    Hornady introduced a new 10mm load in the Critical Duty line of ammunition. The new load uses a 175 grain FlexLock bullet and is rated for 1,160 fps at the muzzle (523 ft-lbs of energy).

    What is interesting is that Hornady had sold a limited amount of 10mm ammunition in the Critical Duty line prior to this announcement. That ammo was a Cabella’s only item and was not part of the Hornady catalog. The Cabella’s exclusive 10mm load used a 175 grain FlexLock bullet, but was rated at a slower 1,050 fps.

    (For readers outside of the United States, Cabella’s is an outdoors store that sells, among many other things, guns and ammunition.)
