Compared to other top self-defense rounds, the Civil Defense 9mm+P has
- 32 to 38% less felt recoil
- 65 to 75% more velocity
- 25 to 30% more kinetic energy
- Reduced over-penetration
- More stopping power
We designed the Civil Defense line to eliminate threats with one round by creating the maximum amount of damage and tissue disruption possible.
They do well against barriers, but when the cavity fills with fluid, the hydraulic pressure builds until the side walls of the projectile explode. With that explosion comes starburst pattern fragmentation, reduced over-penetration, and 100% energy transfer. Therefore, creating devastating trauma and multiple wound channels.
Velocity: 2000 FPS
Kinetic Energy: 450 FPE
Accuracy: < 1″ @ 25 Meters
Terminal Effect: 3 ½ “W x 12” D
Rounds: 20 per box
The entire Civil Defense line is lead-free and California compliant.
