Liberty Ammunition, a Florida-based manufacturer of lead-free ammunition for the military, law enforcement, and civilian markets expanded its Civil Defense line with the addition of the 10mm Auto round in the fall 2014.
Designed for personal defense, tactical use and hunting, the 10mm Auto packs a punch. Liberty Ammunition’s Civil Defense 10mm achieves approximately twice the velocity of standard 10mm ammunition, three times the terminal effect, 30% more energy transfer, and reductions in felt recoil while simultaneously reducing the weight of all loaded weapons.
During testing at Liberty Ammunition’s facility, the Civil Defense 10mm Auto achieved velocities greater than 2,400 FPS, creating 780 FPE.
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 10mm Auto 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.
