New Black Hills Xtreme Defense Loads

Black Hills 1Black Hills 2






If you carry a .380 Auto or .38 Special revolver for personal defense, read on. Black Hills has developed two new loads—one each in .380 Auto and .38 Special—loaded with newly designed, patented, sharp-edged, homogeneous copper bullets that do not rely on expansion, but rather cut and redirect tissue radially as they penetrate, creating wound channels superior to conventional hollow-points in both depth and diameter. The bullets have no cavities to clog with clothing fabric or material from light barriers. The .38 Special round is loaded with a 100-grain Xtreme Defense bullet that develops over 1,000 f.p.s. velocity and 222 ft. lbs. of energy out of a snub-nosed revolver (and over 1,250 f.p.s./347 ft. lbs. out of a 6-inch barrel). The .380 Auto round, loaded with a 60-grain Xtreme Defense bullet, exits the barrel of the typical .380 auto-pistol at a velocity of over 1,150 f.p.s. and delivers 176 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy.
