Best bang for your buck target ammo in 458 socom
Black Butterfly .458 SOCOM CTX (No1) Ammunition
Much less recoil then regular rounds, my wife now feels more confident about using her pistol if a self defense situation were to occur.
Of the twenty round I shot in My Beretta Tomcat two rounds did not feed properly. I will try another box and hope for perfect results. Received excellent service and fast delivery for Clark, will shop here again.
After long arguments with my sister on the merits of being able to wear stylish clothing while carring, I finally agreed to look for son decent ammo so that she could carry her 380. After watching many ballistics tests by people I had previously deemed no biassed and defenders of science, I came to the concosion that 380 hollow points did not carry the energy to do thier job. Interestingly enough FMJ seem to overpenitrate leaving more potential for colatirl damage then stopping wounds. I finnaly landed on this, which seems to use directed hydrostatic shock to decrease the penitrating efficency of a FMJ (in this case a copper slug) causing lesss penitration and more cavity. It's no 45 +P poly, but I feel better about her caring this rather than hollowpoints designed for 9mm velocities.
Amazing. No malfunctions. Really cool to look at before and after.
I shoot a Glock 42 (.380). I used the Penetrator for testing. Performance was much better than expected. I use the "Defense" for carry purposes. In my opinion this round makes the .380 a more desirable carry round.
G2 Research 9mm R.I.P. Ammunition
Havent got to shoot many of them, But this is one of the most awsome self defence rounds I have ever seen !!! Cannot wait to see what these new OATH TANGO 12 g slugs do ! This could very well be my next (ONLY USED)ammo just wish tou made this in 40cal Thank You!!!!! ORDERING AND DELIVERY WENT WITHOUT A HITCH WAS EVEN EARLY!!!!!!!
Very Good stuff....
Underwood .380 Auto +P Xtreme Penetrator Ammunition
G2 Research .40 S&W R.I.P. Ammunition
Feeds well and dependable personal protection ammo. Like the safety this ammo provides for in home protection.
G2 Research 9mm R.I.P. Ammunition
These feed better into my Radical 458 upper than my flat nose HP rounds do.
Lehigh Defense .380 Auto Xtreme Penetrator Ammunition
Functions well in Browning 1911 .380
Nice lightweight and functioned well in Shield.45
NOT BAD SHOOTING AMMO, BUT OUT OF 50 ROUNDS I HAD 3 MISFIRES, KIND OF EXPENSIVE FOR A MISFIRE
The DRT fed fine and no problems. Used it in my R51. Accuracy is more a factor of me than the gun or ammo. Like using Clarke because easy to find what I want and service is good.
It's great to know that a company is interested in a shooter's health. I plan to use this ammo exclusively in my G17. There are other "clean" options available, but this brand is also less expensive. A great buy and a win-win!
G2 Research 9mm R.I.P. Ammunition
No local gun show stock these rounds. As shown in the YouTube videos absolutely awesome rounds for defense and crippling power.
Excellent customer service on both orders that I placed.
Packaging is top notch and ammo is of premium quality.
OATH .40 S&W Tango Ammunition
What do you think about the product?
The ammo shot as expected with no issues. The unique penetration channel was really impossible for me to verify, but it cycled through fine.
What firearm(s) did you shoot it through?
Taurus 380 (738 TCP)
Did it perform better or worse than expected? How so?
The ammo preformed as expected.
How was our checkout process, delivery and customer service?
The checkout process was simple and there was no problems with the order or delivery.
I have an xds 45acp. I purchased some RIP 45acp. I love the bullets. They where way better then I expected them to be. The check out was great. But ups couldn't find me house so it took an extra 3 days to get them. I will highly suggest getting some of the Rip bullets
Underwood .380 Auto Xtreme Penetrator Ammunition
for the price you can't beat this ammo. descent accuracy
Notice in the picture the discoloration of the 2 bullets that are together vs. the color of the bullet on top. This is not a shadow. The discolored bullets were purchased from this site and the other bullet was purchased from another retailer. Both boxes that I purchased from this site appear to be reloaded ammunition. I have not fired any of these bullets yet, but, they should have been labeled as reloads or another explanation of the discoloration would be appreciated.
All of these bullets are manufactured by the same company and have the same packaging. The difference is the discoloration of the bullets.
The ammo is different from the others I have shot. The performance of the ammo is great and most of all will do the job when needed. The weapon used was a 9mm Ruger. I'm afraid I'm a little Ruger lady. The shopping for the ammo was great, nothing difficult in ordering. The shipping information was very easy to understand in waiting for the delivery of the product. I will most definitely order again and tell friends and others about Clark Armory.
Been in law enforcement for over forty years. Excellent ammunition
ITS THE BEST SURVIVAL AMMO THAT I HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO USE IN A SHOTGUN [REM. ESCORT MP-SA].
EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS.
FIRST DEALING WITH " CLARK ARMORY " EXCELLANY AAA+
They expand perfect and would definitely recom'd them.
12ga. a bit expensive but worth it!
Had a great experience, fount the DRT ammo I wanted actually cheaper than any other place with it in stock. I can't say enough about the DRT ammo, look on YouTube at some of the ballistic gel videos if you need convincing.
Black Butterfly .458 SOCOM CTX (No1) Red Box Ammunition
Tested the ammo. Works great,no problem
My Kimber Micro is a touchy 380 - has been difficult to find ammo that will feed reliably. I've run a box of Underwood through without a problem - even one handed rapid fire. Ammo packs a wallop and flames a bit, but feeds great so far. I'll feed a few more boxes through and see how we do. If result is as I expect then underwood Xtreme will be my carry ammo.
I wanted a round with proven penetration for my Bodyquard 380. This a great round that has had no failures in the boxes I have practiced with. I carry it, and would highly recommend it.
Feeds the the Ruger LCP just fine. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.
The ammo looks really good and loads into the mags perfectly. Haven't shot any yet because everyone is too busy. Lone wolf is no fun.
Took this ammo to the range to see how well it was liked by a CS RAMI, CZ75 B and a BERSA Thunder 9 mm US PRO. All three ate it like candy. No fail to feed, no fail to extract and no stove pipes. It was Verlaine light in recoil and very accurate. In the Bersa I had a 20 round 6 inch gro at 10 yards. With the Rami the grouping was about 6 inches, but wit the CZ 75B the group was 3 inches. Think this will now be the go to for carry in my 9's.
Getting ready to order another 100 as I practice what I carry. And when back in stock.
Performed perfect, shot out of Ruger LCP Custom with Laser Max. 4in.
Fed reliably through my PPK/S. It’s very accurate with decent penetration in wetpack; one of my favorite rounds for my .380.
Clark Armory is good to work with. Will definitely purchase more.
I have had this product in the past. It works well in all calibers I own. 380,9 and 45. I love the fact that it makes the carry weight significantly less without decreasing stopping power. I like the fact that when it hits something hard it tends to not ricochet, but when striking the ballistic jell it maintains its shape and weight. I have personally not seen or heard of any actual incidents where this product were used in real life. I suspect it will perform well. I have yet to have a FTF or FTE with any of my firearms.
Pleased with Clark Armory ,prices were great and fast shipping to boot. I love Liberty Ammo Civil Defense 9mm +P, less than half the weight of Sabre rounds, but the performance is really what sold me. 2000 ft per second and because of it`s 50gr weight there is less recoil so you back on target instantly. The 20 initial rounds I put through my new Taurus 9mm Slim ran flawless and at 20 yards were all inside my 6 inch bullseye. Which was impressive for such a short barrel weapon, I mean it`s a defensive conceal carry not something you`re going to be making 50 yard shots. But I think with that, I`d like to try Civil Defense ammo in something with a longer barrel to see what she`d do with all that speed. Penetration in a block of modeling clay was also good with a pretty devastating hole in the block..
I have fired numerous rounds in several 9MM pistols and it feeds and works well in the sub compact pistols such as the M&P Shield and the Sig P 938; but won't feed in most larger models in both the Sig and S&W varieties. It will occasionally feed but not something you would like in competition and certainly in a gun fight. You could reduce the recoil springs; but I wouldn't recommend that. I have used it in my Sig 1911 compact 45 cal. with great results and even excellent grouping. I carry this sometimes and use the $%Auto 114gr ARX and feel confident in the round. It does reduce the recoil; but more important it really reduces the weight of the loaded pistol. I have not tried the 9mm in the ported shield; so can not comment on that.
Great ammo. Ranger t series Lehigh defense and underwood only from now on
Glock 17. Went through level 3a vest and 6 milk jugs of water
The Oath Tango in .45acp is an excellent round. I shot it in a Series 70 Light Weight Colt Commander.and due to the round nose had no bullet hangups and no feeding problems. I shot at several Gallon Milk Jugs filled with water and the bullets opened up as advertised and decimated the plastic jugs. The .45acp Tango performed better than I expected and the results were very Impressive. Clark Armory's checkout process is very fast and easy to use. The products I ordered arrived quickly from the time I placed the order to the time it was delivered to my door. I had a issue with my order and dealt with Sawyer in customer service. He was very attentive and the issue was solved immediately. In fact the first time I was contacted by Sawyer was on a Sunday which was unexpected. I presumed that the soonest I would have been contacted would have been on the following Monday. Clark's Customer service department is AWESOME, and because of it I will be placing several more orders in the future. I will be telling many other people that I know and run into about Clark Armory. their Products and their EXCELLENT Customer Service.
Prompt shipping, good packaging. I looked in my book and this is what I found.
I can possess tracer rounds, no problem. If I fire them in New Jersey, it's a felony ("crime of the fourth degree"), good for 18 months in prison and $10,000 fine.
Clark Armory is a great ammo resource. Not only do they have a great variety of ammo to choose from, but I found the prices to be excellent for the specific ammo I was looking for. Shipping was fast and reasonable. I would certainly order from them again and I highly recommend them if you're looking for high quality, non-toxic ammo.
One awesome 12 gauge round. Stay out of its way. Shot it through my Remington Raikal double barrel stage coach gun I keep for home defense. It pretty much leaves a 3" hole in what it hits!! Excellent for self defense!! Bad news for the bad guy!! Wish I had taken a camera for pics of those gallon milk jugs filled with water!! Obliterated them.
they look awesome cant wait to shoot something maybe a watermelon or pumpkin
The first shot of an Oath round from a 12 gauge Mossberg Zombie gun devastated and an Arizona green tea 1 gallon jug. Took the top 1/3 of the jug off and spread the shreds for about 5 feet. I wouldnt want to see what it will do to a burglar. I did have a misfire with a round which scared a little. It didn't fire like the rest and fire came out the barrel instead of smoke and the round. The case was burned on the inside and you could see unburnt powder in it. xxxxxxx I never did find the round, didn't seem like it came out the barrel but it did because i checked the barrel. Overall they seem pretty good rounds and i think they will be a very effective way to protect my home and family.
The first picture is of a round that fired fine. It is clean on the inside. The next 2 are of the misfire. As you can see, some of the powder did not burn all at once and actually embedded in the side of the shell.
I hope this offers some insight. I had fun shooting them and the experience of what they will do was enlightening
Ran 2 boxes through my .380 Bodyguard without any problems. Very accurate. It will be my new carry ammo. Very impressed!
I now have PolyCase ammo for three guns, a 9mm, a .380 and a .38 Special. The ammo feeds perfectly in the two semi-autos. In all three, it appreciably reduces felt recoil. This is particularly significant in the .380, which is a Ruger LCP, which has quite a "bark" due to its light weight and small grip.
I have no way to test or compare the ballistics, tissue damage, or penetration of the ARX bullets. However, I've studied the test reports on-line and in several magazines and am satisfied the ARX bullets will provide superior performance for defensive purposes.
I have not tried them yet. To hot here to go out and shoot.
I have not tried them yet, maybe this weekend. Looks like they will do the Job !!!
No failures to fire or eject with this ammo. Noticeably less recoil. Had some feed failures in a Sig P320 but other ammo has also caused feed failures. Clark is great to buy from as usual. Recommend.
As with other users, I was surprise at the low recoil. Solid performance at the range in my Beretta. I highly recommend people purchase a few boxes.
great ammo, fast cheap shipping. would buy again.
This ammo is incredible and I've bought R.I.P. for every pistol I own. I prefer to load these rounds on my every day carry weapon and I don't believe there is any better self defense round in the market than this
I have been a big fan of OATH ammo for a while now and as soon as the .357 Tango ammo can into stock I had to order it! The rounds fired smoothly and I am absolutely satisfied with my purchase!
This was recommended to me by a local police officer. Although I've run a limited number of rounds through my S&W M&P CORE (too pricey to use as range ammo), it runs flawlessly and is very accurate. I especially like the idea that, if I ever have to use it for real, I'm not likely to get a shoot-through. It's definitely my carry ammo for summer use. The one thing I do was to test its penetration for winter use on a very dense fabric, such as that in a peacoat. Its light weight is also a definite plus in a 17-round magazine (it's noticeably lighter).
very nice ammo, bought 40 rounds to shoot through my new radical firearms 458socom, It performed flawlessly.
I was hesitant on these, but after putting 50 rounds of these through my M&P Shield and my wife's XD, they performed well. Little recoil and no issues with chambering, firing and ejecting. This is my new carry ammo.
Shot this ammo through a Sig P320 with no issues. Performed as expected. Had problems with shipping packaging but Clark made it right. Will buy from Clark again.
Fed reliably in a Sig P238, seemed accurate.
Fed well threw my rifle will definitely be getting some more.Good target ammo
Just buy one and try and you will always buy more. A different and unique feel to your shooting and makes plinking funner! Recoil for +P next to nothing on my Glocks and surprisingly accurate. Makes blowing up assorted items messier!
I read pro's and cons in reviews for the Civil Defense ammo, so I purchased some for my 9mm and am very impressed. The speed of the bullet is faster than 95% of other types. Looking more at gel tests, the more i like the ammo. I like the fact that it won't blow through an intruder and then keep going through the house. It expands almost instantly and has enough penetration to shred vital organs. I keep them in my conceal carry guns as well. If you don't want your shot to blow through an attacker and hit innocent people by mistake, these are for you! Also, the weight difference in these and lead shots is a big plus as well. I couldn't believe how much lighter they are especially in my 15 and 16 round clips. Perfect defense rounds!!!
I made a small purchase of your ammunition and found it performing quire well in my 16" Radical Firearms upper on a Colt LE6920 lower. They fed well and were exactly what I expected. I had to look through my box of old USGI magazines to find ones that were of an first generation/low tech style that allowed the rounds to load. I will surely order again, as I don't reload. I found the check out process fast and secure. They shipped immediately and were delivered without delay Of course, this product is at the low end of the price range for targe .458 SOCOM which allows me to shoot a little more frequently.
After careful study of all products,and their is good ones, Liberty stands alone in speed. After watching YouTube, it was a no brainer. Reliable,fast and very accurate. Its in All my CCW's. Kevin's Kustom Kreations
Great service and performance !!
This my second order of the G2 Research ammunition. I am impressed with this ammunition and so are the other participants at the range.
I purchased these oath rounds in 45 and also for 38 special from another company. Both results were the same. The rounds did not open up as described. I shot multiple rounds of each caliber into ballistic gel on several different occasions and still with poor results. I even went as far to fill a 55 gallon barrel full of water and stand on a step ladder to shoot straight down into the barrel. Still unsatisfactory results. This product is nothing but all hipe and no actual results. Much better products on the market I have tested that cost less too. I will no be buying anymore of these rounds. With the amount the rounds open up I can buy junk FMJ rounds and use. Excellent customer service and shipping time from Clark Armory. I will be sure to buy other products from their website.
Clark Armory has fulfilled my orders promptly and as promised; I like the order tracking, especially. I'll continue buying through them. The Velocity Tactics Fort Defense in .380 auto cycled smoothly through my finicky Walther PPK/S. The bullets hit very accurately with impressive penetration in wet-pack.
Excellent ammo great company
The ammo worked perfectly in my AR 458 Socom with a 16" barrel, not a single issue with feeding, cycling, or accuracy. Super easy to order, as well as being the best price ammo I could find. The ammo was shipped quicker than I expected, and the shipping cost was very reasonable. I will definitely order more of this ammo again in the future.
I took the G2 Research Trident Ammo out to shoot at some water filled Milk bottles and the results to the Milk cartons was explosive. I experienced no feeding issues in any of the Magazines used with the SAR AK platform test rifle. It was awesome seeing the Milk Cartons Blown to smithereens. I highly recommend this ammo. for defensive purposes.
This runs with no issues in my Glock 42. From the tests of the Lehigh Extreme Penetrator bullet I have seen it appears to be a good 380 round to use.
In a limited test, I ran two magazines (12 rounds) through my Kahr CW380 without experiencing any feeding problems. It is reported that "some" Kahr CW380s have feeding issues with this round, but apparently mine is not one that does. For good measure, I also ran one magazines (8 rounds) through my Russian Makarov (in .380 ACP) with no issues.
Well i shot out of my ruger lcp and they worked just fine just like any other round would but for the price you cant go wrong for target ammo
I am using 9mm Oath Tango for home & concealed carry. I have not done a ballistic test, but I find the 9mm Oath Tango to be very accurate.
The packing and shipping of the Oath Tango was what I would have expected and I plan on purchasing again.
Like this ammo but wish the cases were chromed. This ammo is for self defence and may stay in the magazine for a wile. Moisture and grit will make cases turn green and cause misfeeds.
The location I mostly carry concealed is an area that contains hundreds of people's in close quarters. What drew my attention to this round was the video that showed almost all of the penetration is dispelled within 5 inches thus reducing drastically the chances of overpenetration. About 300 foot pounds of energy from a 9 mm is substantial. To be able to have that force without the standard 10-12 inch penetration greatly reduces the risk to non-threats.
I would use it for home defense and on me when I conceal carry.
Purchased these because of past ballistic performance out of 9mm ...recently I've switched my primary 9mm to gorilla silverback..also from clark armory ....also fantastically destructive God forbid it's ever needed. I chose the frangible .380 for my glock 42 ..again because the balistics are surprisingly nasty AND basically ZERO chance for over penetration or ricochet in home, car , or any other close quarter engagment. Last but not least the price point for the quality and capability is a NO BRAINER. Stay safe, protect you and yours and for God's sake VOTE....PLEASE
Ammo performed better than I expected. Well worth the price. I used it in my S & W 411. Checkout was quick and easy. I will be switching to this ammo in my .40 and will make the transition to all my 9mm in the near future.
Good ammo performed as described
I have not shot it yet but was impressed with what I saw on YouTube test. Plan to use this in defensive situation in place of Critical Defense for higher velocity and better penetration from my S&W 380 Bodyguard and from my Bersa Thunder 380 cc. I was very impressed with the look and cleanliness of the rounds. I expect them to shoot perfectly and will let you know if not.
Ran with s&w mpcompact,high point carbine. Ran flawless, recoil seemed lighter. Only ran a few rounds due to cost per round, overall seems really nice on MY end, dont want to be the reciever.
They are pretty neat. Helps with your aim. Once you shoot you can correct yourself. Definatly will buy again.
I know thats a big statement and a hard one to swallow for some but through doing my own testing with everything from Black Talons to Federal to even the Fang Face, Hydrashok, & R.I.P. Rounds & this ammo does the most damage. Not to mention it leaves the largest Wound cavity & most damage of all of All The ammo i shot along side it hands down. I took the most hardcore ammo for self defense and put it up against the The Underwood/Lehigh defensive ammo and none of them could really hold a candle to the amount of damage done by these rounds. I would rename them simply "They Won't Be Getting Back Up" because Extreme Defense just doesn't do this ammo justice. lol ENJOY!!!
Excellent ammo, cycles flawlessly and cronoed right at what SBR said it would. Firing this ammo out of a Radical Firearms 458 AR platform and will be buying more ammo in the future, only wished 458 ammo was cheaper.
This is great ammo. Glock 30 has no trouble with it. Very consistent!
Clark Armory is an outstanding company that ships quick and offers a great product at a very fair price. I'm a repeat customer that will be back again and again!
I found this ammunition is a very effective round. In fact I am going to order more.
Shoots fine, fairly accurate. Just what I needed for my Ruger LCR.
I am very happy with the 9mm RIP rounds. The function as advertised. I highly recommend these rounds for self defense.
Only fired a few shots because the rest are in my carry mag, but I tested it with a few 30 gallon plastic drums filled with water, and as far as I can tell, they do what they should.
The product was as good as expected, Accurate at 30 ft. with low recoil. Gun used was a Charter Arms Pink Lady. I've always had a good experience with Clark Armory. Would recommend them to others. This is my carry ammo.
No complaints here! Best customer service! Will order again!
I have only used this ammo in target practice, but as far as I can tell the bullet does just what is advertised. The recoil is much less than with flu ammo, the gallon jug of water literally explodes. I use both 380 and 40 S&W and am more than satisfied with it's performance. Than you Polycase. Howard
Shot the Liberty Civil Defense today for first time. I used a 17 pound FROZEN pig carcass. ! When you first shoot it it's loud BUT recoil is tame. I was amazed at the damage inflicted. My only analogy of the wound channel is to take 3-4 pounds of pig hamburger and throw it under the carcass and you have the wound damage of just one shot! Plus, although still frozen solid, there were 4-5 pieces of shrapnel embed approximately 3-6 inches deeper than the initial pig "burger" wound! Not sure how far the main bullet housing went it because it was hard t o measure and carcass was still frozen. Just a guess here folks, but I would estimate the main bullet went 2-4 inches past the initial primary entrance wound. Again, an educated and observed guess. By the time I was done with 19 more rounds in the same carcass there was nothing left but cracked and shattered bone and "pulled" pork. Truly a very effective personal defense round!
I tested the Lehigh Extreme Penetrator today. It's better than ADVERTISED! Shot it thru car doors it went thru both doors with ease. Shot it into FBI ballistic gel and the results were catastrophic to the gel! Fed into all 7 of my weapons with no FTF OR FTE. Recoil was standard for a 9mm. Very clean propellant and dead perfect accuracy! My only concern would be using it for inside the home defense as over penetration might come into play. Lehigh Extreme Defense would, based on my observations today, be better suited for in home defense as that's what it was designed for! Take it from a picky ammo shopper, this Lehigh Penetrator is worth every penny. Lastly, Cark Armory has one the best and most responsive customer service departments I have had the privilege of dealing with. They are a credit to their company!!
Wonderful round, velocity close to .45ACP and penetration equal to both 9mm and 45ACP. Accurate round that I am sure is affective. Makes a .380 very viable for senior shooters, where recoil of larger guns affect arthritic hands. My rounds were shot through a Sig P238 sports 12. No problems.
Clark Armory was flawless and a pleasure to deal with. I will return as a customer.
feeded smoothly made good wound
I got this ammo for my wife's Ruger LCR 38
We feel that the recoil has been reduced
I shot the OATH Tango .45 ACP using a Walther PPQ. The rounds shot without any issues and have very impressive target results.
Clark Armory has a very good online ordering process. Delivery was on time.
I have used these Oath Tango rounds in my Ruger LC9s and they perform flawlessly.
Very impressed with the performance.
Most badass bullet I've ever shot!
My Ruger LCP Custom with the 8 shot clip will suffer an occasional "STOVE PIPE" gonna try Ruger ARX next
This ammo has awesome stopping power, they are not getting back up. This is definitely a show stopper for the bad guys.
I was expecting more recoil from a +P ammo but it has less recoil than my standard FMJ practice round. As accurate as any I've shot.
I now carry this as my defensive ammo.
Looks more like jewelry than ammo. I was concerned about running this stout load through my LCP so I called Underwood to ask about chamber pressure and spoke to a very nice technician. He assured me they have tested this ammo in an LCP with a standard 9lb. Recoil spring with no signs of over pressure. I have installed a 14lb. Spring (yes, it works). The SAAMI spec. For standard .380 is 21,500 psi. Though there is no official spec. For + P, .380, Underwood rates this load at 22,500 psi which is less than 5% above the SAAMI maximum. Most "official" +P ammo (9mm etc.) runs about 10% more pressure than the standard load in that caliber. Any manufacturer that makes a gun that won't safely handle at least 5% more pressure than the SAAMI spec, wouldn't remain in business very long. I didn't fire a lot of the ammo (at $1.50 per shot) but ran it reliably and was controllable and as accurate as you can expect from a mini gun firing off hand. I have done my due diligence and will use this ammo in limited quantities. Make your own call.
Purely devastating ..,..fantastic round
Was excited to try this ammo by black hills on my Glock 42 and I was disappointed. I got 4 failure to eject and they advertise 25 ammunitions and you actually get 20 will not buy again. I will stick to undeUnderwood for this type of bullet
Awesome round,the mess it creates on impact even if the body armor is present it has enough power to slow anybody down,for door hardware it puts a pretty good beating enough to trust my first indoor round to go for in case my life depended on it.
No FTF or FTE, Loaded like silk in my XDM -9, Groups consistently, And does exactly what it was designed to do. Between Underwood and the G-2, I found my full time carry loads.
The ammo....great! Clean shooting, no FTF, no FTE. Shot from a Gen 4 Glock 26. Soft shooting as well. Hope I never have to use it, but glad I have it if I do.
Now on to Clark Armory. WOW! SUPER quick ship and very well packaged! Also, great price on this ammo! I'll be back and will recommend Clark to all of my shooting friends.
Fixed these last night every third round. Like 4th of July especially when I hit my metal targets. I'm buying more for the real 4th of July. Impressed beyond description!
Great stuff on the range. Accurate, low recoil. Haven't done gel tests (no equipment), but the reviews I've seen look great.
I love this ammo in my 380 Bodygueard . The recoil can be bad in these small autos,but these cut it way down while still have the penetration .
The ballistics gel performance was impressive, but it would not feed reliably in our rifle. See the video for complete review.
The Polycase ammo that I purchased was fired thru my wife's Smith & Wesson. It was both accurate and had less felt recoil than the 380 ball ammo that we normally use for practice. No problems with the rounds at all..
I'm loading the ARX Polycase in a S&W .357 AirLite for home defense. The light weight ARX bullet is a pleasure to shoot compared to standard weight .38 Specials and far easier than .357 Magnums.
While I've not seen ballistic tests of the ARX .38 Special bullet, if its performance is anywhere comparable to that of the ARX .380 tests which have been widely published, it should be a great defense round.
While not the subject of this review, the .380 ARX eliminates the "bark" of my Ruger LCP and makes it almost enjoyable to shoot. It did not come as a surprise to me when Ruger adopted the ARX bullet for its proprietary .380 ammunition.
I run this in my Springfield 1911. It shoots great! I'm getting to the age where wear and tear matter - and this ammo is much easier on the wrist. Not that you shoot a ton of self-defense rounds every trip to the range, but this is smooth stuff when you do.
I've burned through a box of this. The reduced recoil is great for putting successive shots on target. My wife loves it in her XDS.
GREAT AMMO IN MY SIG . POWERFUL AND ACCURATE, NOT TO MENTION LIGHTWEIGHT.
Found this ammo to be accurate. I feel this ammo will be a good defense ammo the few times I carry the P238. The 380 has less recoil than a standard target round, is cleaner and lighter in weight. I loaded the 380 in my wife's P238 Sport and she found she is more accurate with it. It added another layer of security for her.
I usually carry my Kimber 45ACP Ultra CDP II loaded with ARX 45 Auto and am very happy with that ammo also.
This was my 4th order from Clark Armory and they have always performed above average with quick shipping and notifications. They are my Defense Ammo Supplier from now on.
I ordered this ammo for home defense and carry in my Springfield XDS 4.0! The people at Clark shipped my ammo fast. Ordered it on Monday and received it on Thursday. Range report was uneventful as there were no FTF's, no FTE"s. The ammo was preforming as well as my PMC Bronze 115gr Luger ball ammo. I was getting 3 inch groups at 20 yds, same as the ball ammo. Overall very satisfied with the Oath Tango 9mm ammo. A great choice for HD and CCW.
It looks good in the video, but the flanges or wings don't penetrate and the leftover bullet was small. I would rather have a solid bullet that penetrates, mushrooms and does the damage. I shot the .380 RIP and the Hornady .380 XTP and was much more impressed with the XTP. RIP has a great idea, but... not yet.
Plus the cost and the shipping makes the round expensive!
Clark Armory is quickly becoming my favorite ammo store. They offer excellent service with very fast shipping.
The Ruger ARX ammunition shot perfectly through my LCP. Yet another carry option.
Well made, unique design, wish it had nickel plated cases
Quality ammo. Unique design.
I haven't pushed these rounds through ballistics gel or anything like that, but I have sent a few downrange at the local gun club. They fed well through a standard magazine in my Radical Firearms 16" carbine. Recoil is very manageable and grouping was acceptable.
Before the ARX ammunition the recoil made it difficult to keep the weapon on target. With the ARX ammunition felt recoil is much less. With the ARX ammunition and a Crimson Trace laser the wife feels much more confident with the weapon. Testing with small pumpkins was an eye opener!
I cannot recommend this round to anyone. I bought two boxes of this ammunition in 9mm and with both boxes the projectiles were not properly seated in the case thus not allowing the bullets to fit in the magazine. Several magazines were tried, XDS, M&P Shield and Glock 19 with a failure to fit. Do not buy.
This ammo runs accurate and clean out of my Kel Tec P11. I'll be buying more.
My M&P Shield likes this ammo. Smooth feed and dependable.
Great round that packs a jolt. Works great in my Glock 42. My new carry ammo. Will buy more in the future.
I was looking for some exceptional lead free ammo for my HK P7 M8 9mm, no doubt this meets the need, providing exceptional performance with no mal-functions! I will definitely be purchasing more of the Ruger ARX, less weight with excellent self defense capability. I will be looking to purchase the ARX 380 & 45 cal. I believe Ruger is finishing what S & W initiated during the 1980's...
Wanted these for two carry guns, they shoot accurate and the recoil is less than what I was loading before. My wife and daughter are comfortable with these bullets.
Probably the best terminally ballistic bullet I have fired. Cycles beautifully through all of my 1911s, including my duty pistol.
this new Lehigh bullet is just what I needed! plus the way underwood loads them up! I now have a 9mm in .380 size!
