For gun owners who want to protect themselves with a high performance self-defense bullet without the recoil of a lead +P round will find everything they’re looking for in the stainless steel and poly/copper self-defense ARX cartridge: power, speed, efficiency, accuracy, less recoil and devastating terminal performance.
Even the heaviest clothing barriers have no effect on the terminal performance of the ARX bullet. The ARX penetrates straight until it encounters soft tissue. Upon entering soft tissue, the specially designed grooves in the nose harness the soft tissue and constrict, pressurize and eject it at 1.5 to 2 times the directional speed of the bullet. This is the well-known Venturi Effect. As the bullet penetrates it tumbles in a controlled, predictable fashion that delivers very consistent terminal performance that equals or exceeds conventional hollow point designs.
The NovX SST NAS3 Stainless Steel shell casing is paired to a primer pocket constructed of 7078 hardened aircraft quality aluminum plated with nickel. The NAS3 stainless steel casing, far superior to extruded brass, provides strength, weight, dimension and alignment. For shooters this means unparalleled power, higher velocity, greater efficiency, cycling, and accuracy, reduced weight, reduced bore fouling and corrosion, and increased reloads.
- Fluted copper polymer projectile creates massive wound channels
- Stainless steel casing provides strength, power, alignment, and less weight
- Fast, flat, accurate, and with less recoil for smoother target reacquisition
- Reduced bore fouling and corrosion
