Federal has expanded its Syntech line of polymer ammunition into the personal-protection realm, with Syntech Defense. The bullet in Syntech Defense has a core that penetrates 12 to 18 inches through bare ballistics gel and heavy clothing—a benchmark in self-defense situations. The segments create three secondary wound channels, each more than 6 inches deep, adding to the terminal effect.

Like all Syntech loads, an advanced polymer jacket is designed to eliminate lead and copper fouling, and to reduce damaging heat and friction in the barrel. Additionally, its Federal-exclusive Catalyst primer is said to provide hot, extremely reliable ignition, all without the use of lead.

For a full listing of Federal Syntech Defense loads, see the list below, and for more

Part No. / Description / MSRP
S9SJT1 / Syntech Defense 9mm Luger 138 grain, 20-count / $19.95
S40SJT1 / Syntech Defense 40 S&W, 175 grain, 20-count / $22.95
S45SJT1 / Syntech Defense 45 Auto, 205 grain, 20-count / $24.95
