Liberty Ammunition Introduces the Civil Defense Line of 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .380 Auto

Liberty Ammunition, global leader in high performance, lead-free ammunition for military and law enforcement markets, announces the Civil Defense line of superior personal defense ammunition for civilians and law enforcement personnel. Available in 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP and .380 Auto, Liberty’s high-performance ammunition has twice the effective range of standard ammo, provides up to 16% less felt recoil and considerably less weight in loaded magazines.

3DnewpackCDIn testing the 9mm and .40 S&W ammo at Liberty’s home range, the Civil Defense rounds traveled at velocities greater than 2,000 fps and over 1900 fps for the Civil Defense .45 ACP round. These velocities are nearly double that of any other standard ammo. The Civil Defense lead-free rounds are made from nickel-plated copper with a nickel-plated brass cartridge case. Every round exceeds match-grade quality in performance.

Liberty’ hollow-point fragmenting Civil Defense rounds also provide three times the terminal effects of traditional ammo in comparable calibers. Due to the patented, proprietary make-up of the Civil Defense rounds and the lead-free component, Civil Defense ammo is lighter in weight. For example, a law officer carrying three fully loaded magazines on his belt will notice a significant weight reduction of up to a pound.

“Liberty Ammunition was originally developed for the battlefield. That same mindset of superior performance, coupled with our advanced ammunition technologies is now available to consumers and law enforcement,” Steven Torma, President and CEO of Liberty Ammunition commented. “Faster, more powerful and lighter in weight; the Civil Defense line of ammunition is the obvious choice for personal and civic protection.”
