Compared To Other Top Self-Defense Rounds

Our lead-free 223 projectiles function differently than any other self-defense round on the market. We designed the Civil Defense line to eliminate threats with one round. We did this by creating the maximum amount of damage and tissue disruption possible. They do well against barriers, but when the large cavity fills with fluid, the hydraulic pressure builds until the side walls of the projectile explode. With that explosion comes rifle-sized temporary cavities and hydrostatic shock, therefore increasing stopping power by tenfold. Following the explosion, the bullet fragments into a starburst-shaped pattern creating multiple wound channels. This process also benefits in many other areas across the spectrum of things considered when talking about self-defense. Such as reduced over-penetration and lessening the risk of unintended casualties. Having a lighter projectile also leads to less muzzle flips for faster follow-up shots.

Liberty ammo will charge you out the XXX for shipping yet all their distributors ship for free. Do yourself a favor and do not ever under any circumstances buy directly from liberty ammo


Response from Liberty Ammunition

Yes, distributors ship free if you are a dealer and typically purchasing over $500. They also can add in firearms and other items that they stock as a distributor. We price at MSRP and absolutely, if you can find a lower shipping cost, you should go that route. FYI – we edited out the swear word in your note.

Can this be shot out of a a Bond arms 410/45 colt snakeslayer?


Response from Liberty Ammunition

Bond Arms makes a fine pistol.

We don’t see any reason why that would not be a good combo.

These not only have low recoil, but at 100 yards it blows up a watermelon as though you shot it point blank.

What’s bullet weight diff between +p and ultra light +p?

Not grains the grains same.


Response from Liberty Ammunition

Total grain weight is 92gr for Ultra Light vs 120gr for Civil Defense (two random bullets pulled from boxes and weighed).

As a comparison, the new Federal self-defense round (“Punch”) is 190 grains.

Thats more than 2x the weight of Ultra-Light and 158% the weight of Civil Defense.

Are they safe with the SAR9 CX pistol?


Response from Liberty Ammunition

Larry, our ammo is designed with SAAMI standards.

If the SAR is designed to these standards as well, then you should be fine.

Great performance even in subcompact 9 mm pistols.

Incredible penetration, low recoil, fun to shoot and 100% reliable what’s not to love!


Response from Liberty Ammunition

Thanks Stu,

The penetration is fabulous and it’s even better when the projectile ruptures and stops the threat.

Our 380 Civil Defense Rounds Changed The Pocket Pistol Game. For A Long Time, Everyone Criticized The 380 ACP For Not Having Enough Kinetic Energy. That’s Not The Case Anymore. Our 380 Is One Of Our Most Sought After Rounds Because It Packs Enough Punch, It Gets The Job Done.
