When it comes to self-defense, it’s an absolute must to have your gun loaded with superior ammunition. One way to increase the performance of your defense ammo is to use +P rounds like these from Magtech. +P rounds, which are also known as overpressure rounds, are loaded to a higher internal pressure than the standard for that particular cartridge. That higher pressure means increased velocity and greater stopping power, both things you should be looking for in defense ammunition. It is important to note not all guns can handle a +P round, though, for example, quite a few aluminum alloy framed .38 Specials can’t handle overpressure rounds on a regular basis; some can’t handle it at all. Make sure your gun is rated for +P rounds before using them.
These +P rounds are a medium-weight 158 grain, lending them more knockdown power while still keeping them light enough to travel towards your target quickly. They’re Semi-Jacketed Hollow Points, so they’re capable of significant energy transfer on impact and also begin to expand immediately upon impact. Thanks to their jackets their expansion is more controlled, which means the round is able to penetrate more deeply than the average HP, creating a more devastating wound. This ammunition has nice speed and leaves the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second, impacting your target with a muzzle energy of 278 foot-pounds. If you’re looking for effective defense rounds, you’ve found them.
You get 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. It’s a good size for stashing in your safe for later and tucking into your range bag, and you might want to consider ordering multiple boxes so you can keep your gun loaded and also spend some time training with it. Defense ammunition has more power than target rounds, and since these are +P rounds that’s even more true. It’s absolutely vital you be comfortable and competent with your chosen defense ammunition so you can make accurate follow-up shots, so take the time to try it out in advance. All of Magtech’s ammunition is manufactured at their plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where they’ve been making ammo since 1926. Place your order today and be ready for anything.
