PolyCase, a veteran owned company with over sixty years of experience working with polymers, has partnered with Ruger to make revolutionary defense round. It's not only the copper/polymer bullets that are unique, but the production process which wastes no metal and little water while the lead-free ARX rounds are created. While the bullets are of an all-new design, the rest of the cartridge is made from a conventional brass casing and a non-corrosive Boxer primer.
Aside from the fluted cuts, the rest of the ARX bullet is shaped like a conventional FMJ round which helps even the lightest 56 grain bullet penetrate through intermediate drywall and clothing barriers. The 56 grain bullet is lighter than most .380 rounds, but travels faster at a flatter trajectory in order to improve terminal ballistics and accuracy. The lightweight bullet also helps lower felt recoil which is great for small pocket pistols with small grip surfaces.
