The .380 auto has become an incredibly popular defense tool in the last 10 years. The best gun for gunfight is the one you have with you. In many cases that now tends to be a .380 pocket pistol. They are small and concealable pistols, but to be effective, you need the best ammunition possible. Black Hills Xtreme Defense is that ammunition. It does not rely on a hollow point design which can fail to expand or plug with clothing. Instead, it uses a new design with homogenous copper projectile, developed in cooperation with Lehigh Defense, with cutting edges on the forward surface and flutes on the ogive of the projectile that redirect the tissue as it impacts and penetrates at a velocity of over 1150 fps. This is a superior design in terms of reliability and effectiveness.

Black Hills has added a new Sierra high BC bullet, the .30 caliber 155 TMK (BC .519) to its suite of long range .308 ammunition. This bullet has a ballistic coefficient higher than Sierra’s famous and field proven 175 MatchKing, but 20 grains lighter, permitting velocities 150 fps faster than the 175 MK. This means less drop (2 MOA less drop at 600 yards) and less wind drift.

The polymer tip also improves reliability upon impact and lessens chances of over-penetration, making this round a superior performer where limited penetration is desired, such as in urban law enforcement applications.

The .300 Whisper (Blackout) is here to stay, and Black Hills Ammunition has added yet another accurate and top performing projectile to its lineup in this caliber. The Sierra TMK (Tipped MatchKing) has a polymer tip to improve ballistic coefficient (.332 at Whisper velocity of 2200 fps!) and a bullet profile that helps assure smooth feeding from standard AR magazines. The polymer tip also improves reliability of expansion to aid in hunting, law enforcement and self-defense applications.

The .38 Special snub nosed revolver is one of the most popular and reliable self-defense tools available. The problem is that most ammunition until now did not perform well at the velocities attainable in a snubbie. Black Hills, working with Lehigh Defense, has successfully addressed that problem.

The new Black Hills Xtreme Defense round provides 1000 FPS from short barreled revolvers (and over 1250 fps from 6” barrels), penetrates deeply and makes a larger temporary cavity than conventional hollow points. This innovative new patent pending, sharp edged, homogenous copper design does not rely on expansion, but cuts and redirects the tissue radially as it penetrates, creating a wound channel superior to conventional hollow points in both depth and diameter of the wound. This design has no cavity to clog with clothing material or when penetrating light barriers.

This is the defensive ammunition you should have in your revolver to defend yourself and loved ones in the increasingly dangerous world we live in.
