Hornady Critical Defense FTX ammo question Login/Join

I recently acquired a box of Hornady "Critical Defense", .40 S&W, 165 grain, FTX ammunition. I am familiar with the concept of how it works but what I am curious about is the rubber-like material in the hollowed out area of the bullet point (feels like a pencil eraser). What is its composition and does it last or will it degrade over time as rubber does. I can't seem to find much info about it on the net. Anyone know about this?

I doubt that its "rubber" like we routinely think of the material, but I could not find anything in their literature that says what the tip is composed of. I tried to find the patent information on the product line, but failed. There's a lot of reading here...

az4783054 - thank you! That is a lot of information. I think I'll be reading and re-reading it for a while. And I am somewhat relieved to know you couldn't find anything either and it wasn't me missing something obvious. Thanks again.
