When it comes to ammunition for your home- or self-defense firearm, you have lots of choices (if, that is, you can find them in stock). Between the COVID-19 pandemic, an active hurricane season and growing civil unrest, Americans are more concerned about self-defense than ever before. If your family is like many NRA Families, you want to be sure that you're investing in the right kind of ammo for your defensive needs. After all, premium defensive ammunition can come with a fairly hefty price tag...so how many premium features do you really need in your ammo? 

In this video, American Rifleman's Evan Brune compares and contrasts some offerings from Federal Ammunition and their sister company, Speer. Should you invest in the same type of premium defensive ammunition that law enforcement uses, or can you get by with a slightly stripped-down (and somewhat more budget-friendly) load?
