Compared to other top self-defense rounds, the Civil Defense 45 Colt has

  • 24 to 60% more kinetic energy

  • More stopping power

If you’re looking for a quality 45 Colt self-defence 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 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.
