Liberty’s Lead-Free Civil Defense Line of ammunition for personal defense and law enforcement features approximately twice the velocity, three times the terminal effect and less felt recoil.
BRADENTON, FL (Ammoland.com) – Liberty Ammunition, the global leader in high performance, lead-free ammunition for military, law enforcement and civilian markets, is pleased to announce the .38 Special as the newest addition to its Civil Defense line of high performance personal defense ammunition.
Known for its accuracy and manageable recoil, the .38 Special is ideal for personal defense, training, target shooting and game hunting. Liberty’s high-performance ammunition delivers approximately twice the velocity, three times the terminal effect, 16% less felt recoil and considerably reduces the weight of loaded weapons.
In testing at Liberty’s production facility, the Civil Defense .38 Special achieved velocities greater than 1,500 fps. This velocity is nearly double that of standard ammo. The Civil Defense line of lead-free ammunition features nickel-plated, solid copper projectiles and nickel-plated brass cases. Every round exceeds match-grade quality in performance.
Liberty’s deep cavity, hollow-point projectile, fragments in soft tissue, providing three times the terminal effects of traditional, lead-based ammo in comparable calibers. Due to the patented, proprietary design of the Civil Defense projectile and the lead-free component, Civil Defense ammo is approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the weight, depending on caliber, of traditional ammunition, thus significantly reducing the carry weight of all weapon systems.
