I have been very pleased with the Gorilla Ammo products that I have used though my sample size is admittedly small. Their 77gr Sierra Matchking load has shot very well for me. Now they have announced that they are moving into the high end self-defense ammo market with a selection of solid copper projectile based offerings.
The development of solid copper projectiles has lead to major advancements in terminal ballistics. It is nice to see more companies coming online with options like these.
From Gorilla Ammo:
Vero Beach, FL, – January 20, 2016 – Gorilla Ammunition introduces the new Silverback product line, featuring solid copper machined projectiles in 380 ACP, 9mm, 45 ACP, and 300 BLK. These technologically advanced projectiles create insane temporary and permanent wound cavities with controlled expansion to optimum depths.
“The growth of Gorilla Ammunition has been tremendous over the past year. We are very excited to release our new Silverback Line at SHOT Show. These lead free, CNC lathe turned copper projectiles are engineered and tuned for maximum expansion with penetration depths dictated by user requirements. Our proprietary heat treating and CNC machining process provides the unique ability to tweak projectile performance in soft tissue. This technology is groundbreaking for the ammunition industry and self defense ammunition consumers” said Lanse Padgett, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer
“The entire Gorilla Ammunition team has worked tremendously hard over the past few months developing and refining this product line. It’s been our mission to be on the leading edge of 300 Blackout and now with the Silverback line we offer a 300 Blackout subsonic cartridge that expands and creates terminal performance on game that is tremendous. I am really excited to see how the consumers respond to the introduction of this new ammunition technology.” said Gorilla Ammunition’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Jay Duncan
