Anyone shot any of this Hornady Critical Defense stuff? Did not want to "feed" through any of my carbines

Must be the tip of the projectile? I have one carbine that will not feed anything but military ball, or commercial FMJ that has the military ball profile and I refuse to monkey with the feed-ramp to make it feed a different profile. I do reload and shoot a soft-point 30-caliber Mauser bullet that feeds well, but it has a lead soft point on the nose and not a cavity or a flat-point.

The Lee C309-113-F (it's almost like a semi wadcutter) feeds fine in my Inland carbine but would hang up in the Rockola. I not familiar with the Hornady bullet's profile so maybe that is the problem?

My GI Part compatible commercial carbine IAI feeds the Hornady Critical defense just fine. I ran 50 rounds of it through the carbine in a test session last week.

It was expensive paper punching, but ran 50 rounds through an Underwood carbine with no issue.

I have a JRA carbine as well as an IBM. I have had no problems with Critical Defense in either. Fulton Armory also recommends it to their customers. As prior posts indicate, most problems are magazine related, so you just have to go thru trial and error testing ( $ ouch).
