Winder, GA, May, 2017, G2 Research – NEW Civic Duty high-expansion ammunition turns the often underrated .380 ACP into a serious fight stopper.
G2 Research’s new high-efficiency .380 ACP Civic Duty self-defense round changes the game. The pure copper, 69-grain, light weight low recoil, specialized CNC-machined bullet moves at 1,250 FPS, then on impact instantly expands into six (6) big flesh-cutting copper petals almost one (1) inch in diameter – transforming the .380 into a truly fast fight stopper.
The .380 is seen by many as the red-headed stepchild of the full power 9mm, even though, at self-defense ranges, the .380 performs comparably to the 9mm. Generally, the .380’s lighter bullet and 100-250 fps velocity drop (depending on the loads) has been the major stumbling point for many. Well, not anymore!
The all-new Civic Duty.380 ACP round creates 9mm stopping power in a smaller, lower-recoil package, with the added benefit that its design:
- reduces the possibility of through and through shots that can harm bystanders;
- increases the chance that all the bullet energy stays inside the target; and
- lower recoil allows for faster, more accurate followup shots (if necessary!)
The sharp, flesh-cutting bullet petals also cause more impact pain and create large temporary and permanent wound channels, all of which adds to its fight-stopping capabilities.
