Liberty Ammunition is a Florida-based manufacturer of lead-free ammunition for the military, law enforcement, and civilian markets. The Civil Defense Lead Free .357 Magnum ammo features very deep hollow-points. When striking flesh, these bullets rapidly expand creating a large wound channel. The petals of the hollow-point tend to shear off and form their own wound tracks, causing further exsanguination. The central part of the bullet continues to penetrate deeper into the body – typically to a distance of 12” – 14” in ballistic gelatin. A penetration depth of 12” in ballistic gelatin is the arbitrary minimum distance the FBI determined was suitable for the needs of its agents. It offers a lot of the things that people want such as reliability, penetration and massive wounding.
Liberty Ammunition’s Civil Defense line features a nickel-plated, CNC machined solid copper projectiles and nickel-plated brass cases, making them perfect for training, target shooting, defense or hunting especially in areas that are embracing non-lead ammunition because of the environmental dangers of lead. The nickel plating reduces barrel fouling and nickel plated cases feed better in the firearm. Nickel plating has also been credited with increasing the life cycle of the weapon system
Liberty Ammunition’s deep cavity, hollow-point projectile is designed to fragment in soft tissue, resulting in a much greater transfer of kinetic energy to the target while providing three times the terminal effects of traditional, lead-based ammo in comparable calibers. Due to the proprietary design of the projectile and its solid copper construction, Civil Defense ammunition also provides exceptional performance on hard targets such as drywall, car doors, auto glass and leather/denim without sacrificing any performance in soft tissue. Despite the light weight projectile, it will penetrate soft targets deeper than expected. Liberty Ammunition’s Civil Defense ammunition is an excellent choice for use as self- defense ammunition, and it provides more than enough power to do the job. Liberty Ammunition’s Civil Defense ammunition is a high quality accurate load designed for self-defense. This copper monolithic fragmenting hollow point is designed for excellent penetration and excellent expansion. This light bullet will travel very quickly and will feel softer shooting.
Liberty Ammunition’s Civil defense line provides ammunition that is useful for personal defense and home defense. The entire Civil Defense line delivers lightweight, lead-free ammunition with maximum stopping power, reduced recoil, match grade accuracy, and barrier penetration resulting in high performance green ammunition. Liberty Ammunition continues to create the world’s fastest ammunition with twice the velocity. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, and requires no weapons modifications.
