Premium, frangible ammunition at a discount!
2nd GEN PRODUCT INFORMATION
Match-grade ammunition for self defense, tactical operations
and big-game or varmint hunting.
All of the 2nd GEN ammunition, developed by the makers of Allegiance
Ammunition, is designed to rapidly expand when contact is made with tissue,
providing greater safety than conventional hollow-point or ball ammo. The
unique, expanding properties greatly reduces the chance of bullet
over-penetration, reducing the risk of injuring an innocent bystander.
All rifle ammunition is designed to provide an explosive entry, reduce
penetration and create massive damage upon impact. The composite core is
has the same performance characteristics as a standard lead core bullet, yet
quickly fragments upon impact of the soft target. All rifle ammunition is match
grade, and will achieve MOA accuracy to 100 yards.
Most pistol ammunition is available in both the Air Freedom Round (AFR), or the
Enhanced Penetration (EPR) round. Each round is designed to provide
maximum stopping power, although they differ in the characteristics of their
Differences in the 2nd Gen Pistol Ammunition
Enhanced Penetration Round
The Enhanced Penetration Round (EPR) is engineered for applications where
greater penetration is a must. The EPR has greater terminal success through
automobile glass, light sheet metal, and wood. This round has the ability to
penetrate thick skin, dense bone, and then fragment once inside the softer
tissue of the target. The deep penetrating characteristics of the EPR make it the
ideal round for street duty officers, as well as, serious handgun hunters.
This round will fragment on any surface that would cause a lead bullet to
NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN ARMOR PIERCING ROUND!
EPR rounds exhibit the same characteristics as conventional lead core or hollow-point ammunition. Accuracy and felt
recoil are similar to lead bullets of the same weight.
Incredibly effective on soft targets, the EPR round will remain intact and penetrate interior walls in the same manner
as conventional hollow-points and lead-core ammunition.

96% of the bullet's energy has been expended in the first 7
inches, and full penetration is achieved at 14 inches.
Air Freedom Round
The Air Freedom Round (AFR) is possibly the safest round in the world. The
Air Freedom Round disintegrates when it hits hard targets, such as many
interior walls and airplane skins, but retains astonishing stopping power on
organic targets. Unlike rounds made of polymers (that can generate lethal
ricochet), the Air Freedom Round will turn to harmless powder if it misses its
intended target and hits a hard surface. It is the only round in the world with
this level of performance and safety.
The Air Freedom Round is well suited for urban and other tactical.
close-quarter environments, where over-penetration is of the utmost concern.
It is excellent home defense round, since it will fragment in standard half-inch
sheet rock (wallboard) in most cases.
*Note: This bullet runs at plus-P type pressures, and should be used only in firearms of good constructionand good working order.

Real-life testing of the Air Freedom Round
Tests with the .45 ACP AFR, which yields a velocity of 1,365 fps, show remarkable safety characteristics. In one test,
a mock-up of an interior wall, consisting of 2 segments of textured sheet rock joined by two by fours, was placed
down range. There was no insulation present between the two pieces of sheet rock. A third piece of sheet rock,
which we will refer to as segment # 3, was placed behind the "wall", at a distance of only one foot.
With a round fired from a Glock G36 at 8 feet, the bullet disintegrated at a rapid pace. The entire core of the bullet
disintegrated upon exit of the second segment of sheet rock, with some black "splatter" showing on segment # 3.
The splatter was caused by leftover particles of the bullet core, and did not penetrate segment # 3 in any way. The
deflector plate was found lodged in segment # 3. The copper jacket was found behind segment # 3 (The deflector
plate, made of polypropylene, is a small tear-shaped portion of the round. It sits in front of the core of the bullet, and
disperses the bullet into hundreds of fragments upon impact).
Tests will vary according to caliber and distance. I personally conducted the above test, and I tried to create a
worst-case scenario. In this instance, there was no insulation between the pieces of sheet rock, and I was within a
short distance to the wall. With this scenario, the entire core still disintegrated. The remaining deflector plate and
jacket were the only remaining pieces of the round. Although it would certainly hurt if someone were to be struck by
them, there is a slim chance that any serious injury would result.
All in all, I was very impressed with the performance, and I turned from a skeptic to a dealer!
