AfterSHOT: Gorilla Ammo’s New Self Defense Ammunition

Gorilla Ammunition is debuting their new line of bullets and the description certainly makes it sound interesting. We aren’t sure what the cost is just yet but these 300 BLK rounds suppressed sound very mean indeed — and by sound we mean they don’t sound very much at all.

They had the following to say about this new family of ammunition.

Silverback Ammunition from Gorilla Ammunition is a new line of pistol ammunition and 300 Blackout ammunition featuring solid copper CNC machined projectiles.

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

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds’ Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you’d like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year’s SHOT, there’s a live map right here, though it doesn’t reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
