Gorilla Ammunition's Silverback Self Defense Ammo features patent pending CNC Swiss turned copper projectiles loaded on nickel-coated brass. Upon impact, the 5 wings of the Silverback's hollow point projectile fold back and expand to approximately three times the bullets original diameter. This results in a wound channel much larger than the projectile's caliber. These rounds fire their 230 grain bullet at 850 feet per second and feature nearly 100% weight retention in fluid.
These .45 ACP Silverbacks feature a different projectile design from the standard .45 ACP Silverbacks increasing their penetration by up to 5 inches.
