Defensive Handgun Ammunition from Lehigh Defense

I spent a large part of my law enforcement career studying the terminal performance of handgun ammunition. Since then, I’ve continued to conduct experiments with a wide array of bullets. While it is likely that I have educated myself beyond my intelligence, one thing is undeniable; I have accumulated a lot of data  on the terminal performance of defensive handgun ammunition. (Check out Terminal Tuesday, each Tuesday on the Shooting Illustrated website.) With some luck, by this time next year you should be able to read about these findings in a book I am currently working on.

Here is a look at a 9mm load we tested from Lehigh Defense a few months back. This is a very comfortable to shoot load that did reasonably well when fired through two layers of drywall.
