A New Class Of Ammunition: NovX 9mm ARX Engagement

G&A editor Eric Poole introduces you to a new 9mm cartridge from NovX combining a stainless steel case and a polycarbonate/copper ARX bullet. For more information, see press release, product video and web link below.

PRESS RELEASE:

September 2017 — Today, NovX is introducing the most effective, lethal combination of bullet technology in more than a century. Stainless steel and copper polymer have come together to create the first 9mm Luger +P and standard pressure Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridges. At 1,655 FPS there is no +P copper poly bullet that is faster. At 65gr there is none lighter. The bullet flies flatter than lead, offers less felt recoil, and creates absolutely devastating wound channels. Today the world discovers brass and lead had their chance. Welcome to the new world.

The NovX 9mm ARX® Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridge is a totally new and revolutionary patent-pending class of ammunition. It combines the intellectual properties of a polycarbonate/copper ARX® bullet with the Shell Shock Technologies™ (SST) stainless steel casing and aluminum primer base, operating on the principle of Aero and Fluid Dynamics, not hydrostatic shock or mushrooming. The NovX technology is replacing old-world brass with a stronger, lighter and more consistent cartridge, creating possibly the most accurate defensive handgun ammunition on the market.


The NovX 9mm ARX® Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense bullet design is a proven platform that leads to highly efficient energy transfer, superior terminal performance, controlled penetration in fluid-based targets and optimum maximum range to lessen the chance of collateral damage in urban and home defense situations. NovX 9mm ARX® Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense ammo produces 20-30% higher velocity than standard ammo and is extremely accurate.  Both new and seasoned shooters will appreciate the 20-30% less felt recoil aiding in faster target re-acquisition times.  Law Enforcement and government professionals benefit from the 40%-60% weight reduction versus standard ammo when in the field.

The NovX 9mm RNP® CrossTrainer was developed in parallel with the NovX 9mm ARX® Engagement:  Extreme Self-Defense cartridge utilizing the Shell Shock Technologies™ SST case, combined with the RNP (Round Nose Projectile) bullet in lieu of the ARX profile.  With nearly identical weights and velocities as the NovX 9mm ARX® Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense round, the NovX 9mm RNP® CrossTrainer is an excellent choice for training, competition and recreational shooting.  The NovX 9mm +P generates more ft/lbs of energy than a standard .45 ACP 230 grain at 875 feet per second!

With the benefits of a self-lubricating and corrosion resistant stainless casing and the lack of lead fouling, firearms cycle faster and more reliably while shooting more accurately and burning cleaner.  The advanced polycarbonate/copper bullet composition acts like a frangible round and mitigates ricochet when shooting into impenetrable surfaces or steel reactive targets at the range.  Plus, with emerging lead regulatory compliance issues in certain states, as well as indoor ranges, the absence of airborne and deposited lead is a significant advantage to the end user and range owners.

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
