Lehigh Defense is offering a new self-defense round called Xtreme Defense, or XD. The new rounds are being manufactured in 9mm and will soon be followed by .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm, .380 Auto, .45 ACP and .38 SPL. They’re designed to create a larger, more devastating wound cavity while reducing risk of over-penetration.
From Lehigh: “Our XD ammunition has an optimized nose flute, total weight, and velocity to achieve a penetration depth range of 18 inches with a permanent wound cavity (PWC) that is just simply enormous; no other expanding hollow point comes close to achieving anywhere near this diameter and volume. Not only is the PWC over 100% larger than any other expanding bullet, it is near barrier blind, ignoring wallboard, sheet metal, and automotive glass.”
Testing was done using the new XD round by the Military Arms Channel’s Tim, who put the round through its paces and recorded the following video:
