Liberty Halo-Point Civil Defense Ammunition
Anyone have any experience with "Liberty Halo-Point Civil Defense Ammunition"? I just got an e-mail sale flyer for it from Midway.
This stuff has VERY light bullets (50, 60, and 78 gr. for 9mm, .40, and .45ACP, respectively) at VERY high velocities (2000fps for 9 & .40, and 1900fps for .45). Supposed to give a solid 12" penetration, but fragment along the way. It's also supposed to produce very low recoil. I'd never heard of the stuff.
Anybody have any experience or (objective) performance data on it?
TIA for responses.
tried the 9mm- liked actually shooting them
I just bought a box of these in 9mm and have only tried them on the range with a S&W compact 9.
Based on just shooting a paper target at 10 yards, they are certainly accurate.
They do shoot noticeably different and are "snappier" in recoil with a pronounced muzzle flash, but do make it really easy to re-acquire during rapid fire and shoot a small group (yea, I only shot 20- they are expensive)
...on a stupid note, they also weigh about half a normal bullet and as i carry everywhere, a couple ounces of savings may just be a mental game, but ill take it.
cant wait to see more independent tests...
