|Ammo Caliber||.45 ACP (Auto)|
We test fired five rounds of .45 ACP (Auto) Liberty 78 gr Civil Defense +P into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Kahr CW45 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) loads.

Liberty Ammo 78gr. Civil Defense
Review by Mark
Wow! I bought a box of these after watching the ballistic gelatin results above. At the range yesterday I decided to try a few and they are pretty cool. I shot them from a H&K USP Compact 45 and it spewed a flame out the muzzle about 18" and it sounded like a .50 going off! The guy in the booth next to me looked around the corner with a really surprised look on his face after my first round. Even with all that noise and flame the recoil wasn't all that bad. No more than any other .45 +P I've shot. So now I need to order another box since I just about shot up the whole first box. It was just too much fun to stop!

The glock perfection equivalent in a bullet
Review by Gho5t
These are me "pick 1 of 3" go to rounds. They are not too expensive, performance makes me more comfortable even though I carry a Glock 36 with a 6+1 capacity. I feel like I am secured and well armed. They are accurate, and they have less felt recoil than even most standard .45 acp rounds. I love these rounds. They are sent from the gun God himself lol

My choice for carry
Review by Lil Johnny
The critical defense is phenomenal, high velocity yielding dramatic hydraulic results in wet mediums. Low recoil and very light weight , (your magazines feel almost empty, nice if you're packing high caps with a couple spare mags). Shooting through metal doors and tanks it outperformed 230 ball ammo for penetration, (similar results on hard dry targets.... It seems to collapse and fold in on itself with dry media, wood etc. over 2000fps from 4 5/8" !). Don't sell it short.
