External Hollow Point™:


G9 Defense has developed an External Hollow Point™ (EHP™) with ballistic results that can only be described as truly unbelievable!!

The External Hollow Point ™ bullet features proprietary geometry on the exterior of the projectile that produces a “Barrier Blind”™ capability and extreme wounding as it goes through the target.

The uniquely shaped tip allows penetration of common barriers such as windshields, drywall and vehicle sheet metal with limited projectile deformation.

While designed to cut through hardened materials, the EHP round slows quickly in tissue to prevent over-penetration. The shape of the External Hollow Point™ is engineered to immediately transfer the maximum amount of energy laterally upon impact with tissue, creating a bursting-type entrance wound, large temporary cavitation and a controlled depth of penetration not seen in other projectiles.

In addition to reliable penetration and immediate energy transfer into the target, the lightweight EHP projectile greatly reduces felt recoil, allowing for rapid follow up shots.

Every aspect of the G9 External Hollow Point™ has been scrutinized and engineered to produce the best carry ammunition for a defensive handgun. As a responsible citizen, your training should include scenarios that are realistic. The ammunition you select should be up to the job as well.
