9mm Xtreme Defender
9mm Xtreme Defender is changing the way self-defense bullets are perceived.
Like the Xtreme Penetrator, the progressive nose geometry allows for deep,
straight penetration while creating a permanent wound cavity diameter exceeding that of most expanding bullets.
However the nose design is the key. The Fluid Transfer’s radial flutes,
force the hydraulic energy inward and then as the energy is restricted,
it accelerates outward, creating high pressure spikes severely damaging surrounding tissue.
This very rapid increase in fluid flow creates cavitation,
and massive tissue damage away from the projectile equivalent
to those of the best hollow points on the market.
Besides the result of the extreme defense 9mm is a permanent wound cavity
that is two to four times greater than what a flat or round nose bullet generates
and often larger than traditional or solid copper expanding bullets.
What you get is a self-defense bullet that will shoot through barriers without
deformation or trajectory change and creates a larger permanent wound cavity
coupled with the desired 18 inches of penetration.
In addition the 9mm Xtreme Defender are available in the following caliber diameters:
.311, .312, .355, .357, .400, .429, .451, .452, .458 and .500.
Are 9mm Xtreme Defender And 9mm Luger The same?
9mm Xtreme Defender and 9mm Luger are actually identical and different in name only.
Despite what name these rounds carry, when you hear someone refer to a 9mm defender bullet
they are most likely referring to a 9mm Luger or 9x19mm Parabellum which are one and the same cartridge.
In short, nothing. 9mm Luger and 9mm Xtreme Defender refer to the exact same round.
When someone refers to 9mm, they almost always mean 9x19mm.
However, there are also terms catering to specific variations of 9x19mm
and other 9mm caliber rounds altogether.
Let’s start by finding out where the 9mm Luger name began.
To do that, we need to look at the round’s history.
Designed in 1901 by Austrian designer Georg Luger (whoop, there it is!),
9mm Luger was introduced the following year by German manufacturer
Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken (German Weapons and Munitions).
That 9mm paired with DWM’s Luger semi-automatic pistol, thus earning its name,
9mm Luger, from the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI).
Similarly, the round is designated 9 mm Luger by the Commission International
Permanente pour l’Epreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives (CIP)–note the
addition of the space between 9 and mm.
Is 9mm Xtreme Defender A Good Ammo?
9mm Xtreme Defender as a handgun caliber is a great option for self defense,
and there are literally a ton of good 9mm ammo out there.
If you’re interested in a particular brand/design and they were not covered in this article, do your homework.
Research on that load’s terminal ballistic performance and find out if they’re
available in your area, as availability affects pricing.
9mm Xtreme Defender is based on the popular Xtreme Penetrator product line.
The XD ammunition has an optimized nose flute, total weight,
and velocity to achieve a penetration depth up to 18 inches*
with a permanent wound cavity (PWC) that is just simply enormous;
no other expanding hollo point comes close to achieving anywhere near this diameter and volume.
Not only is the PWC over 100% larger than any other expanding bullet,
expansion is achieved despite being shot through barriers.
The solid copper body ensures that wallboard, sheet metal,
and automotive glass will have no effect on the Permanent Wound Channel.
