Guard Dog® rounds are specifically engineered for home protection use. The fully enclosed bullet nose is filled with an expanding polymer that minimizes over-penetration through interior walls—reducing the risk to loved ones.
• Optimized for home defense
• No hollow point to plug and block expansion
• Internal skived jacket with rubber front core
• Patented FMJ-like construction
• High velocity with low recoil
• Reduced probability of serious injury to bystanders in other rooms or houses
• Exceptional feed and function in semi-automatic handguns
• Works well under a wide range of velocities
• Large frontal expansion through all barriers
The one-of-a-kind Guard Dog bullet design fully encloses a polymer-filled nose, preventing it from filling with barrier material and collapsing on impact every time.
