Xtreme Defense® Technology Temp Page

Our Xtreme Defense® (XD) Technology, our newest Fluid Transfer Monolithic™ (FTM™),

is based on the popular Xtreme Penetrator product line.

The design goal was to achieve the same barrier-blind performance and massive permanent wound cavity of the Penetrator, while reducing the penetration depth to an acceptable lever for personal defense.

It was a goal we did not meet; it was a goal we blew out of the water!

The XD ammunition has been optimized to create deep penetration while not over-penetrating, and to have a permanent wound cavity (PWC) that is simply enormous.

No other projectile comes close to achieving the diameter and volume of an XD wound cavity.

Not only is the PWC over 100% larger than any other expanding bullet, it is barrier blind, ignoring wallboard, sheet metal, and automotive glass.

We were able to accomplish this quantum leap in terminal performance at the same time while reducing recoil. The terminal performance achieved is quickly approaching that of 5.56 rifle performance, while staying within the FBI’s recommended penetration depth for personal defense ammo. That is an incredible feat.
