Barnes has introduced a line of defense ammunition loaded with Barnes TAC-XP bullets called the TAC-XPD.

Engineered to deliver performance in life-threatening situations, the TAC-XPD features an all-copper construction bullet with a large, deep hollow point cavity for expansion and penetration.

Designed for law enforcement and personal defense, TAC-XP pistol bullets retain nearly 100 percent of their original weight through bare gel, light and heavy clothing, car doors, plywood and automotive windshield glass.

The lighter bullet weights of all-copper TAC-XP projectiles in comparison to lead-core counterparts enable the shooter to recover quickly due to less felt recoil, without sacrificing terminal performance. It is also engineered to produce almost no muzzle flash—an important feature in low-light conditions.

TAC-XPD Ammunition is sold in 20-round packages.

Barnes TAC-XPD Defense Ammunition will be available early 2013:

• 380 Auto 80 grain TAC-XP
• 40 S&W 140 grain TAC-XP
• 9mm Luger 115 grain TAC-XP +P
• 45 Auto 185 grain TAC-XP +P
