Compared To Other Top Self-Defense Rounds

Looking for a quality 45 Colt self-defense round? You found it. No other round comes close. Far more kinetic energy, less recoil, and less over-penetration. The Civil Defense 45 Colt rounds consistently stay within standard pressure ratings. They are safe in any antiques or specialty revolvers. 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 rupture. With that rupturing comes rifle sized temporary cavities and hydrostatic shock, therefore increasing stopping power by tenfold. Following the rupture, 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.


Will always use these.

My Smith & Wesson Governor is my home defense weapon of choice. These are always going to be loaded when it’s at home and ready to protect us.

Ammo is very accurate I love it for my judge


Incredible Ammunition

May 17, 2024

I use this as my personal defense ammo in my full size .40 pistol. I’ve bought maybe 500 rounds over the years. The speed of the round is incredible and the incredible sound it creates is jarring to any would-be threats. Expect lots of attention at the range. This round is extremely lethal. It is essentially an exploding bullet that is less likely to penetrate a human target.

Sold on the first round

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?

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.
