NovX Ammo Introduces A Stainless Steel, Copper Polymer 9mm Round

NovX Ammo has introduced this week what it’s calling “the most effective, lethal combination of bullet technology in more than a century.”

The manufacturer has combined stainless steel and copper polymer produce the 9mm Luger +P and standard pressure Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridges.

NovX says the +P Extreme Self-Defense cartridges register at 1,655 FPS.

“At 65gr there is none lighter. The bullet flies flatter than lead, offers less felt recoil, and creates absolutely devastating wound channels,” the NovX Ammo press release states.

First amongst the new ammo is the NovX 9mm ARX Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridge. The cartridge combines the intellectual properties of a polymer/copper ARX bullet with the Shell Shock Technologies (SST) stainless steel casing and aluminum primer base, operating on the principle of Aero and Fluid Dynamics, not hydrostatic shock or mushrooming. The result is a stronger, lighter and more consistent cartridge.

The NovX 9mm ARX Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense bullet design is a proven platform that leads to highly efficient energy transfer, superior terminal performance, controlled penetration in fluid-based targets and optimum maximum range to lessen the chance of collateral damage in urban and home defense situations.

According to NovX, the 9mm Extreme Self-Defense ammo produces 20-30 percent higher velocity than standard ammo, which aids in faster target re-acquisition times. On top of that, Law NovX says there is 40-60 percent weight reduction versus standard ammo when in the field.

Also on the roster is the NovX 9mm RNP CrossTrainer. It was developed in parallel with the NovX 9mm ARX Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridge utilizing the Shell Shock Technologies SST case, combined with the RNP (Round Nose Precision) bullet in lieu of the ARX profile.
