According to the manufacturer critical duty is designed to operate in a full sized handgun.
Critical defense meanwhile is specifically designed for shorter barreled CCW style weapons, such as the G23 that you and I carry.
I took the word of the folks that make the round and settled on the critical defense for mine.
