I first saw these loads at the 2015 SHOT Show under the PolyCase brand, but they have since teamed up with Ruger and in October 2015 launched Ruger Ammunition. This may well be the next generation of premium self-defense ammunition. The new line features PolyCase’s ARX bullet technology–a polymer matrix that performs in a wide range of firearms and is engineered for maximum hydraulic displacement and terminal energy transfer to targets. It doesn’t rely on expansion, instead the energy is transferred to the target by the shape of the radial flutes, which serve to pressurize and redirect fluid matter laterally.
The new Ruger Ammunition line is currently available in .380 Auto, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W and .45 Auto.
