Compared to other top self-defense rounds:

The Civil Defense 40 S&W travels at 2000 feet per second and is the most effective .40 cal available. It has more kinetic energy than most 45 ACP defense rounds, but weighs less than almost any 9mm. It is also lead free and California compliant.
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. All of our rounds are also lead free and California-compliant.

Safe for a Sig 320?

They are made for one another.

Are the 380 autos equivalent to the old 38 shorts?

Response from Liberty Ammunition

John,

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.

These rounds are a must have for your .40 cal. Especially for stopping power and less risk of collateral damage to unintended targets.

Response from Liberty Ammunition

Thank you, sir.

We believe we make the best self-defense ammo available.

We have more stopping power and all the energy is dumped into the threat.

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

Chris

Response from Liberty Ammunition

Bond Arms makes a fine pistol.

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

MORE INFORMATION

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.
