    Out of these, which is the better self defense round for the LCP? I've read good things about the Hornady CD and went to wallyworld to pick some up but they didn't have any. But they did have the Federal Hydra Shok and Hornady Zombie Max. I didn't know how those compared to the Hornady CD though so I didn't buy any. Is the Hornady CD that much better than the other two that it's worth driving all around town to find some or are the Hydra Shock and Zombie Max relatively comparable?

    I don't think the extra driving is necessary; they're all good rounds when they hit the target!

    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

    I think zombiemax and critical defense are the same thing with a different colored center.

    That's very true.

    I would NEVER use the Zombie Max ammo for self-defense carry, though, simply because of the bad vibes that would create in the press after a shooting - no matter how righteous the shooting was.

    Hydra Shok and Hornady CD are both excellent self defense rounds, can't go wrong with either one if your Elsie likes them!

    I've shot both with Elsie. Both are excellent. No problems with either round. As stated earlier, CD and Zombie ae the same round except for the color of the plastic tip insert.

    I've only used Hydra Shok. Not because H CD hasn't been appealing but because HS was my first SD round purchase and it hasn't done me wrong.

    I am a it of a brand loyalist, if something does me right, so I'll stick with it til I see a reason to change...

    Hydro Shok was my first CD ammo but I carry H CD now, Elsie like both and I have no problems having the BG have either one. Both good rounds as everyone else has said.

    You can't go wrong with either Hornady CD or Hydra Shok. I prefer Hornady CD myself.

    If you asked this question early last month, I wouldn't have had an opinion. Now I have an opinion, and that is both Hornady CD and Federal HS work well.

    I also tested each load outside of the comparison to it's 9mm sibling. If you look back into the articles from March 2012 you will find the reports.
