Federal’s Syntech ammo changed the range forever, and now that technology is revolutionizing protection as well. All-new Syntech Defense ammo provides dynamic terminal performance with a hollow-point bullet that separates into three segments and a deep-penetrating core on impact. The core penetrates 12 inches or more through bare ballistic gelatin and heavy clothing—a critical benchmark in self-defense situations and the best terminal performance of any round in its class. The petals create three secondary wound channels, each more than 6 inches deep, adding to the terminal effect.
Like all Syntech loads, an advanced polymer jacket eliminates lead and copper fouling and drastically reduces damaging heat and friction in the barrel. Their Federal exclusive Catalyst primers provides hot, extremely reliable ignition without the use of lead. The blue polymer jacket on Syntec Defense reduces barrel heat and friction and eliminates metal fouling, and it employs an extremely reliable Catalyst lead-free primer. Twenty-round boxes of Syntec Defense are available in the following loadings: 9mm Luger 138-gr. ($19.95), .40 S&W 175-gr. ($22.95) and .45 Auto 205-gr. ($24.95).
