Quakertown, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- Lehigh Defense announces the release of their patent pending Xtreme Penetrator bullets and ammunition.

Available for both handguns and rifles, the Xtreme Penetrator has a progressive nose geometry that allows for deep, straight penetration while creating a permanent wound cavity diameter exceeding that of most expanding bullets!

The engineering behind this innovative bullet centers on the radial flutes and sharp cutting edges of the nose design, and its environmentally-friendly solid copper construction.

First, the nose design of the Xtreme Penetrator utilizes radial flutes to force the hydraulic energy inward, then (as the energy is restricted) accelerate outward creating high pressure spikes that damage surrounding tissue.  The resulting permanent wound cavity is two to four times greater than that of a flat or ball nose bullet and often larger than traditional expanding bullets – exceptional penetration coupled with a larger permanent wound cavity.

Second, the nose incorporates sharp cutting edges that rotate at the same rate as the barrel twist to ensure effective penetration of any barrier.  Where flat nose and ball nose bullets tend to push material away, the Xtreme Penetrator nose has minimal surface area, which causes an increase in force at the point of barrier contact (in the pounds/inch formula, when you decrease the square inches of surface area, you increase the pounds of force).

Finally, the solid copper construction of the Xtreme Penetrator is environmentally-friendly, and strong enough to penetrate any barrier.  Unlike lead jacketed bullets, the solid copper design will not deform when contacting hard surfaces, nor will it fragment as some hard cast lead bullets are prone to do.  This allows it to overcome surface barriers and penetrate straight and deep, while creating a massive wound channel.

    1. Exactly what tests has this ammo been subjected to and what were the results? We hear so many glowing reports from ammunition manufacturers and writers for gun magazines only to discover that these “exhaustive” tests are nothing more than firing rounds into ballistic gelatin, wall board or water jugs which have absolutely nothing to do with defensive shooting situations. Many of these new rounds don’t even have bonded bullets which, in modern ballistics, have become one of the first requirements of a good defensive round.

      1. I have seen a YouTube video where a guy tested the extreme penetrator rounds shooting through a car windshield,4 layers of denim and then into balistic gel block and it was pretty impressive!The round punched through the windshield without changing trajectory very much,it stayed straight on target with over 18 inches of penetration.(it went completely through the block).The wound cavity was enormous and the bullet was very little deformed.I would guess if the round could do all that,then any other real world barriers,(car doors,drywall,2×4)shouldn’t be a problem for this round.

      2. This bullet leaves the same wound as a FMJ round when it is shot into actual animal tissue. This bullet exploits the properties of Gelatin to give a false impression of it’s terminal ballistics . I have tested round in 2 different calibers , both loaded by Underwood in pork shoulders (details below) to reach this conclusion. BUT Before I go into the science and testing, here is an experiment you can do yourself to understand why we got different results in actual tissue than in Gelatin:

        Take an hunk of meat, organ, or any large animal tissue the butcher will give you, and if its not similar in size, cut it to the the same size as a brick of ballistics gelatin you’ll need for the experiment. Proceed to attempt to you fold the Ballistics Gel in half. The brick will either begin to tear, or more likely (and especially if the gelatin is made from Knox or other Collagen based gelatins), the gel block will completely tear in half. Now I dare you to try and tear a raw pork shoulders, steak, pig lung, pig or heart, in half. Heck try and tear them in half in anyway you can. Unless you are tearing strips of meat along the fibers of a steak, you will not be able to do this nearly at all. It is a very hard thing to stress/stretch actual tissue enough to make it tear. Tearing ballistic gelatin on the other hand, is incredibly easy by comparison. The Gel tears because if its poor elasticity at higher forces. It is this property that gives the illusion that these bullet use to trick the buyer into thinking they give equivalent terminal effects as hollow points.

        The Bottom Line is : When shot through meat, Lehigh Xtreme Defense/Penetrator rounds leave the exact same type of wounds that FMJ rounds do of the same caliber

        How I wish I had my phone charged at my friends farm the day we tested these rounds. I have posted this information on many videos for the Lehigh Xtreme Defense and Xtreme Penetrator rounds. These rounds went all the way through the pork shoulders we lined up on his folding-table; and they left nothing but a tiny hole in the meat, with a wound path diameter no great than the diameter of round itself! In gel we had results just like shown in the above video… though not as drastic for some reason. I suspect that is because we used ClearBallistics brand gel, while the gel above appears to be made with from Know Gelatin with an insufficient ratio of Collagen Gelatin (Knox) to Water, and I don’t see a BB used to calibrate the home-made gel. None the less, the results in the video are still very similar to what you see in clear ballistics gel. But the result in meat is not so. Notice in the ribs placed before the gel, there is nothing but a small hole where the bullet penetrated.

    2. The one
      I live in WV and my son lives in IA. He can buy about anything you could want including .22 rounds. I can’t buy crap here other than odd ball calibers. When you can find popular ammo the price is double to what it is in IA. Go figure.

    3. I find it a little strange that all this new ammo on the market is not in the stores when you try to purchase it. What the heck is going on?
