A light-weight takes on heavy-weight defence!
ARX bullets are made from polymer and copper, resulting in lightweight 9mm ammunition with a 65gr bullet travelling at 1620fps for 379ft-lbs of energy. The bullets have flutes to impart maximum hydraulic displacement – creating a wound channel comparable to soft-nose expanding bullets, yet, the ARX does not expand.
The GR Team compared the terminal performance of the ARX 9mm ammunition in ballistic gelatine with 124gr Sig’s V-Crown ammo.
The results were surprising, both delivered impressive wound channels in the gel. The heavier V-Crown penetrated slightly better but the ARX had almost no recoil.
If you’re recoil shy or use a lightweight handgun this ammo makes a lot of sense.
