Liberty Ammunition has the privilege of displaying the prestigious gold NTOA Member Tested and Recommended Logo in their marketing materials.
Liberty’s Civil Defense 9mm round has twice the effective range of standard ammo and has up to 16% less felt recoil. The testing officer said of the recoil, “I was astonished at the light recoil in my Glock 17. Despite being light, it cycled flawlessly.”
With a 50 grain weight and a velocity of 2,000 FPS (kinetic energy at >450 FPE), Liberty Ammo Civil Defense 9mm rounds have an accuracy rate of under 2-inches at 50 meters. The officer explained regarding his experience with Civil Defense round’s accuracy, “The rounds were also very accurate. At 25 yards, you can definitely tell they are flying faster by the reduction of trigger press to the ring of steel.”
“Collectively, I was very impressed with the accuracy and cycling of the ammunition,” the testing officer commented. “It is very easy to shoot accurately. I believe that lead free bullets and ammunition are the future and as bullet technology advances; it’s only going to get better. Liberty Ammunition is certainly in the forefront of that movement.”
