The development of this technology was the result of an animal control agency's request for a no lead .243 bullet that would provide extensive wound trauma with little minimal pass through energy. Basically the idea was to burst the bullet into numerous particles at a predetermined depth creating many wounds and a large temporary cavity with shot placement at or near the central nervous system. The agency had tried copper matrix frangible rounds and found the penetration depth and particle size were less than what was require for proper terminal performance.
Here at Lehigh Defense, we weren't satisfied with the stagnation of our industry. The technologies behind today's ammunition and bullets has remained primarily unchanged for decades. While the argument may have been "if it isn't broken don't fix it", we think that logic is wrong.
For those dedicated to the various uses of handguns and rifles, any technology that doesn't push performance to its ultimate potential is unacceptable. We have an expectation, a need for a guarantee that our firearms and their bullets and ammunition will get the job done. Regardless of how you use them, you have a right to maximum results.
That's the Lehigh Defense philosophy, and that's the why and what we put into every one of our products.
