Barnes will introduce their new TAC-XPD line of all-copper defensive ammunition in 2013.
Designed for law enforcement and personal defense, TAC-XP pistol bullets retain nearly 100% of their original weight and track straight. Performance through bare gel, light and heavy clothing, car doors, plywood and automotive windshield glass is unmatched by the competition.
The lighter bullet weights of all-copper TAC-XP projectiles in comparison to lead-core counterparts enable the shooter to recover quickly due to less felt recoil, without sacrificing terminal performance. Specially engineered loads produce almost no muzzle flash – an important feature in low-light conditions. Distinctive Techni-Crom plated shells feed smoothly from the magazine for reliability shooters can depend on every time.
The 380 Auto 80 grain TAC-XP, 9mm Luger 115 grain TAC-XP +P, .40 S&W 140 grain TAC-XP and .45 Auto 185 grain TAC-XP +P loads will go on sale in early 2013.
