Black Hills Had Wicked Looking Xtreme Defense Loads

The .38 Special snub nosed revolver is one of the more popular and probably the most reliable self-defense tools available. The problem is that because of its short barrel, most ammunition until now did not perform well at the velocities attainable in a snubbie. That’s why we see several manufacturers offering loads specifically for short-barrels handguns.

Black Hills Ammunition, working with Lehigh Defense, now has a new sunbbie load called Xtreme Defense round that sends a 100-grain all-copper bullet 1,000 FPS from snub-nose revolver revolvers (and over 1250 fps from 6” barrels), penetrates deeply and makes a larger temporary cavity than conventional hollow points. This innovative new patent-pending, sharp edged, homogenous copper design does not rely on expansion, but cuts and redirects the tissue radially as it penetrates, creating a deep and wide wound channel. This design has no hollow cavity to clog with clothing material or when penetrating light barriers.

There’s also a .380 Auto load because .380 has become an incredibly popular defense tool in the past 10 years. They are small and concealable pistols, but they’re considered by many to be the bare minimum for self-defense. The new Black Hills load has a 60-grainall-copper bullet with a muzzle velocity of over 1150 fps.
