HPR Ammunition, manufactured in Payson, Arizona, is positioned in the market as a high quality and innovative brand and is announcing their BLACK OPS line of defensive ammunition.

HPR recognized the significant need for a high quality round that offers superior accuracy, and unparalleled takedown force in a variety of scenarios. HPR created the Black Ops line for maximum knockdown power as the Open Tipped Frangible (OTF) projectile transfers 100% of its energy into the target.  The OTF projectile tracks straight through a variety of soft barriers like sheet rock, plywood, car doors, and auto glass.  When the projectile enters soft tissue, the jacket and core separate with furious force of impact, resulting in mass force trauma.  HPR designed Black Ops as one of the most operational personal defense rounds available on the market today.  Meeting the lead free requirements of California, HPR’s BlackOps features a lead free powdered metal alloy core, which not only delivers mass force trauma, but because it’s a lighter bullet has less recoil too—keeping you on target when all hell breaks loose.  The Black Ops line launches in three pistol calibers, 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 Auto for use in both full size and compact handguns as well as .223 Remington and is suitable for defensive scenarios with its knockdown power and accuracy.
