The Importance of Choosing the Right Type of Ammunition

As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. This certainly applies when it comes to deciding on the right type of ammunition for your firearm and its intended use. The kind of ammunition you choose will depend largely on the specific application for which it is intended. It is also crucial to buy from a reputable manufacturer who provides a quality product. Engel Ballistic Research, Inc. has clocked countless hours of work into designing the best possible ammunition. What you decide to put into your gun is as important as the gun itself. Sometimes, it can even mean the difference between life and death.

We encourage online ammo shoppers to take a look at our extensive collection of ammo, including our three specific types of ammunition:

Frangible Ammunition

With frangible ammunition, the projectile will disintegrate when it comes into contact with a hard, solid surface but will also provide devastating results on soft tissue. Basically, this round is going to inflict the critical damage that is expected of it but will not travel where it is not supposed to. In a home defense situation, this is ideal to prevent over-penetration of a projectile through the target and into walls, ceilings, and doors. Additionally, frangible ammunition will not ricochet off of steel targets--a key consideration when shooting rounds at the range.

Subsonic Ammunition

By design, subsonic ammunition does not break the sound barrier and provides the shooter with a much quieter experience compared with that of standard ammunition. It is most commonly used in suppressed firearms. Imagine shooting at the range without the usual cumbersome hearing protection and being able to carry on a conversation as if you were in your own living room. Subsonic ammunition also has less recoil than other types but does not sacrifice on quality or reliability.

Fracturing Ammunition

Unlike the average hollow-point round which expands but usually remains intact as one solid piece, fracturing ammunition has a projectile that breaks up into several different pieces upon impact. This creates various wound canals which can incapacitate the intended target. If an animal is on the receiving end of an EBR fracturing round, chances are it will be a successful hunt. This round is ideal for hunters due to its efficiency.

Engel Ballistic Research, Inc. offers high-quality ammunition for hunting, training, self-defense and more. Each round is inspected to ensure quality and is backed by outstanding customer service and a knowledgeable staff. Try for yourself and see why so many others are shooting EBR ammunition!
