      Not OP but idk his reason.

      Hornady is not the worst ammo manufacturer but for how well known and well regarded they are, they actually don't make a huge number of rounds that I really like.

      >Critical Defense seems to have kinda mediocre penetration although admittedly I haven't seen a huge amount of data
      >Critical Duty is okay but expansion is uninspiring
      >.223 ELD rounds generally have shallower penetration, 88 gr may be an exception
      >.223 VMAX TAP rounds
      why
      >SST, ELD-M, and ELD-X rounds in larger calibers are usually good, but anecdotal accounts might suggest that some bullets in those lines may be a little less consistent than desired
      >GMX is...fine, I guess
      >various assorted softpoints that aren't overly remarkable

      Hornady produces a few bad items, a lot of stuff that ranges from mediocre to decent, and not that many outstanding loadings.

      There also seems to be the odd report of bad ammo QC, Frontier obviously (although I recall this wasn't technically loaded by Hornady), but I've heard of popped primers from their main lines too.

        I hear the superformance line is also popping primers still but then again it is marketed as being hotter than normal. When it first came out they had a warning on their website saying not to use it in gas guns.

        >>.223 VMAX TAP rounds
        >why
        Human targets, no over-penetration but more fragmentation. perfect for home defense with an AR pistol

      It's not. Hornady is very popular and reddit is trying to make people question their purchases.

        I liked when it went out of style and then there was a glut of extremely cheap vmax ammo that just had a green plastic tip instead of red.

        They also support the Boers. Exceedingly based.

        It's hit or miss, sometimes it's fine range ammo, sometimes it's dirty as shit and my gun is filled with unburnt powder.

      Zombie ammo was the best thing to ever happen to my reloading hobby. They sold off the bullets in bulk a few years ago and it was the only way to get 185gr JHPs with a cannelure. I still have around a thousand left.

    Depends on what we're talking about.
    Hornady pistol rounds are pretty trash, but they have good rifle rounds, and their 12 gauge CD is the second best 12 gauge defense load on the market.

      CD? whose the best then?

        Federal "tactical" flight control is better generally, but some shotguns might like the hornady more.
        Rumor is the federal flite control was and the hornady versitight wad is the exact same, but the federal is copper plated, and low brass, so you're probably not getting as much pellet deformation.

      I have a nice stash of 75 gr. TAP for my 11.5”. Would like to add some Black 77 gr. or even 62.

      That’s what I’ve switched to after seeing how it patterns. What is #1 and why did you also select Federal LE FC?

      I want to like the copper plated Winchester Defender but the pattern at 15+ yards is meh.

    PPU makes worse defensive ammo but at least makes ammo for more obscure rounds. Tula ammo is objectively the worst ammo you can buy, it's only saving grace was cost but that's no longer the case anymore

    Hornady is easily the best ammo maker out there. OP is a massive gay.
