Compared To Other Top Self-Defense Rounds

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. Our 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 flip for faster follow up shots.

Was at the range shot two pork shoulders bone in from Walmart first one with the Hornady. It made a decent cavern and blew through the pork shoulder. Shot the liberty 9 mm silver defense round I had to re-rewind the video to see if I actually saw what I saw the pork shoulder Got a lot bigger when hit with the horn round and when we cut into the pork shoulder, the bone in the shoulder was broke like it was hit with a sledgehammer. This ammunition made me start a 380 again pocket pistol.

Thanks Mike,

There is a huge difference between us and Hornady.

We hit harder and are lighter to carry and rupture on entry.

They make a nice polite round, but it won’t stop the threat like Liberty Ammunition.

Very big difference

The pistols are significantly lighter loaded. The recoil is less and they pack maximum punch.What else can you ask for? Accuracy certainly comparable with other rounds in my hands.

Are the 380 autos equivalent to the old 38 shorts?


Response from Liberty Ammunition


Not sure what you mean by old 38?

38 and 380 are different calibers…….be sure to check the caliber stamping on your firearm and only use that caliber.

I stumbled across these at an auction some years back taped to the box of ammo I THOUGHT I was buying. After reading about them, I blew it off as just another gimmicky round that wouldn’t deliver on the hype. Finally, I decided to test them at an outdoor range a year or two ago. Absolutely devastating terminal ballistics, and yet they stop where they’re supposed to….in the target. Insane velocity in an unbelievably light round without any noticeable increase in felt recoil. It’s all my wife and I will use anymore, and I’ve even hooked a couple friends on it after they’ve tried a couple rounds. Great company, awesome round, dependable results, what more needs said?
