In light of recent ammunition demand, the last lead smelter closing, state regulations on lead ammunition tightening, Liberty Ammunition ramps up production.
Liberty Ammunition, a supplier of high performance, lead-free ammunition for military, law enforcement, personal defense and the hunting markets, has announced a second shift for production of ammunition. Liberty Ammunition's Civil Defense line of personal defense ammunition for civilians and law enforcement personnel is available in 9mm +P, .45 ACP +P, .40 S&W and .380 Auto. The .223 Silverado ammunition, Liberty's first round in their new hunting line, is included in the increased production runs.
The high demand for quality, American-made ammunition has increased over the past several months as several states have legislated strict laws regulating lead in traditional ammunition and California being the first state to ban lead ammunition.
The recent announcement of the closing of the Herculaneum lead smelter in Herculaneum, Missouri, on December 31, 2013, has further escalated speculation on the future of American manufactured ammunition. Liberty's high-performance, lead-free ammunition has twice the effective range of standard ammo, provides up to 16% less felt recoil and is considerably lighter weight when carried in loaded magazines.
Liberty's hollow-point fragmenting Civil Defense rounds also provide three times the terminal effects of traditional ammo in comparable calibers. Every round exceeds match-grade quality in performance.
“The foundation for Liberty Ammunition is providing superior ballistic results built in a 'green' bullet,” says Steven Torma, President and CEO of Liberty Ammunition Steven Torma. “Liberty Ammunition has always been lead-free and is proven highly effective whether on the battlefield or your local shooting range. We anticipated changes in the marketplace prior to the recent developments and are geared up to supply our customers with the very best in lead-free, American-made and trusted ammunition.”
