Liberty Ammunition has introduced its Civil Defense line of personal defense ammunition for civilians and law enforcement personnel. Available in 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, and .380 Auto, Liberty’s high-performance ammunition has twice the effective range of standard ammo, provides up to 16% less felt recoil, and weighs considerably less in loaded magazines, according to the company.
In testing the 9mm and .40 S&W ammo at Liberty’s home range, the Civil Defense rounds traveled at velocities greater than 2,000 fps and over 1,900 fps for the Civil Defense .45 ACP round. The Civil Defense lead-free rounds are made from nickel-plated copper with a nickel-plated brass cartridge case. Every round is designed to exceed match-grade quality in performance.
According to the company, Liberty's hollow-point fragmenting Civil Defense rounds provide three times the terminal effects of traditional ammo in comparable calibers and due to the patented, proprietary make-up of the Civil Defense rounds and the lead-free component, Civil Defense ammo is lighter in weight. For example, a law officer carrying three fully loaded magazines on his or her belt will notice a significant weight reduction.
“Liberty Ammunition was originally developed for the battlefield. That same mindset of superior performance, coupled with the advanced ammunition technologies, is now available to consumers and law enforcement,” says Steven Torma, president and CEO of Liberty Ammunition. "Faster, more powerful, and lighter in weight, the Civil Defense line of ammunition is the obvious choice for personal and civic protection."
