Liberty Ammunition blemished ammunition includes minor cosmetic imperfections which result during typical manufacturing processes. These imperfections do not create functional issues; however, there may be slight performance variations from the standard spec ammunition. The headstamps of these rounds are colored red to help distinguish them from our other ammunition.
The Civil Defense 45 ACP is the best self defense 45 ACP cartridge on the market. It has more kinetic energy than any common 45 ACP self defense rounds, except the projectile is far lighter and more convenient to carry. It’s the best of both worlds, more effective than any 45 ACP, with more convenience than any other cartridge on the market. It is also lead free and California compliant.

For a long time shooters have been in love with the power of the 45 ACP. However, until recently, 45 ACP rounds have been very heavy and hard to control. Thankfully, that is no longer a problem. The Civil Defense 45 ACP only weighs 78 grains. Despite only weighing 78 grains, it still has more kinetic energy than almost any other 45 ACP round on the market. With the way we design our projectiles, they pack one hell of a punch. Our Civil Defense 45 ACP is more convenient and more effective than any other 45 ACP round out right now.
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.
