Top 5-9mm Defense Rounds

1) Federal Premium 9mm- 147gr 

Effective self-defense requires ammunition that provides consistent expansion, optimum penetration and superior terminal performance. This round has it all! Federal 9mm Personal Defense rounds are engineered to provide nearly 100% weight retention even while passing through tough materials.

2) Underwood Ammo 9mm- 90gr Xtreme Defender

The EXD projectile has optimized flute geometry, 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 expanding hollowpoint comes close to achieving anywhere near this collective volume of wound cavity. Talk about an intimidating round!

3) Hornady Critical Defense 9mm-115gr

When it comes to reliability in a hollow point, Hornady’s Critical Defense rounds deliver! The patented technology used in Critical Defense® ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets.

4) Liberty Ammunition Civil Defense 9mm-50gr

This ammunition provides the best of both worlds, the power of 45 ACP, yet lighter and easier to shoot than any other 9mm defense round on the market. The large cavity in the round fills with fluid, creating hydraulic pressure that builds until the side walls of the projectile explode. With that explosion comes rifle sized temporary cavities and hydrostatic shock, creating immense stopping power with just one round.

5) Winchester Silvertip 9mm-147gr

Winchesters Silvertip defense 9mm hollow points provide maximum stopping power for personal defense scenarios from a brand with unparalleled reliability. The engineered jacket profile ensures reliable functioning, precise accuracy and consistent expansion.
