Magtech 40 S&W First Defense Pistol Ammunition rounds are designed with a 100% solid copper bullet, unlike traditional hollow points that contain a lead core covered by a copper jacket. Copper jackets could tear away when fired, causing a loss of weight and a corresponding loss of power. However, Magtech First Defense solid copper bullets have no jacket to split or tear away, ensuring every round you fire meets its target with maximum impact and effectiveness. Trust the bullet that delivers deep penetration and devastating expansion... the kind that stops a threat in its tracks.
Each cartridge is assembled using the highest quality components for absolute reliability. Because Magtech's components are manufactured in-house, their ammunition engineers have full quality control over every stage of the manufacturing process, as well as the final product. All Magtech ammunition is loaded in brass cases and boxer primed and their non-corrosive product is predominately loaded to SAMMI and-or CIP technical specifications.
Sometimes you don't get a second chance. Law enforcement personnel know that all too well. That's why Magtech has developed Magtech First Defense. What makes Magtech First Defense different from other hollow-point rounds? The answer is simple... weight retention.
