Freedom Munitions X-DEF Line Adds .357 Sig Self-Defense Ammo

by Tommy Grant

When it comes to concealed carry, ammunition selection is as important as firearm selection. For this reason, ammunition manufacturers like Freedom Munitions place a focus on self-defense-specific options like the X-DEF line. After releasing .38 Special, .357 Mag, and 200 grain 10mm earlier this year, the company now adds the .357 Sig to the X-DEF line.

X-DEF Line from Freedom Munitions Expands with the Addition of .357 Sig

Seated in a brass casing is the X-Treme Bullets’ copper-plated lead bullet. The 124-grain X-DEF hollow point expanding bullet is expelled via premium, low-flash powder. Engineered from the ground up, the X-DEF projectile achieves 99% weight retention, according to the company. As a result, it delivers optimum penetration.

Freedom Munitions tested the round in its ballistics lab and clocked a velocity of 1350 FPS with a 4-inch barrel. Likewise, the round achieved 13-15-inch penetration in clear ballistic gelatin. This combination of weight retention and penetration makes the X-DEF line a solid choice for personal defense.

Where the X-DEF .357 Sig really shines is in its pricing. As opposed to packaging the ammo in 20- or 25-round boxes, X-DEF is packaged in 50-round boxes. However, at $31.89 per 50-round box, the ammo is competitively priced for affordability. Thus making it easier to keep all of your firearms loaded with premium defensive ammo.

The .357 Sig joins .38 Special X-DEF, .357 Mag X-DEF in two weights, and also a 200 grain 10MM X-DEF in the self-defense category.

“We have meticulously designed X-DEF for optimum penetration and weight retention, to ensure each cartridge is a defense round customers can rely on. We are continually growing our X-DEF line to give our customers a solid selection of calibers when choosing their personal defense ammo,” said Toby Thill, President of Freedom Munitions.
