This self-defense cartridge’s bullet is abnormally light at 78 grains because it is made of solid copper. The lead-free SCHP picks up enough momentum to clear muzzle at an astounding rate of 1,800 fps – without producing above-standard chamber pressure as a result. Liberty boasts that this ammo is safe for antique and specialty revolvers.
This round’s featherweight bullet produces about 18 to 38% less felt recoil. That will help you fire off shots faster and with greater accuracy, as you’ll have less muzzle flip to compensate for each time you squeeze the trigger. Liberty reports that this round’s bullet reliably penetrates to a depth of 12”. It also creates an enormous 4.5” wide wound channel, because the SCHP doesn’t merely expand. The bullet’s sidewalls burst outward in a starburst-shaped pattern, thus inflicting multiple injurious wound channels while simultaneously reducing (but not eliminating) the risk of striking innocent bystanders positioned behind the threat.
This American-made ammunition is adorned with nickel-plated brass cases. Nickel protects against corrosion, and it also reduces friction so you can empty your cylinder out and fill it back up again in a hurry.
