Southern Munitions NEW 300 Blackout ammunition, featuring the proven Lehigh Defense Controlled Chaos bullets. This high quality ammunition is perfect for hunting or pest control. The lead free projectiles are safe to use in any environment with no risk of lead contamination. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer-primed, reloadable new brass cases.
The development of the Controlled Chaos technology was the result of an animal control agency's request for a no lead .243 bullet that would provide extensive wound trauma with little minimal pass through energy. Basically the idea was to burst the bullet into numerous particles at a predetermined depth creating many wounds and a large temporary cavity with shot placement at or near the central nervous system. The agency had tried copper matrix frangible rounds and found the penetration depth and particle size were less than what was require for proper terminal performance.
The bullet is designed to penetrate to a specific depth and to fracture as the internal hydraulic pressure exceeds the hoop strength of the nose design. At the time of fracture, a massive energy spike is released as the particles break away and radiate outward from the initial trajectory path. This energy spike and resulting temporary cavity sends a shock wave through the animal's circulatory and nervous systems immediately shutting down the functioning of these systems.
The Controlled Chaos technology differs from the Controlled Fracturing technology in that the fracturing particles are smaller, the penetration depth of the smaller particles is less, and the initial energy transfer is greater. These features make this an excellent bullet choice for varmint hunting, animal culling, fur hunting, and personal defense.
Suppressor Safe — The projectile is machined from solid bar stock. Expansion only occurs upon impact through hydraulic energy. (They only expand when they hit “wet.”) This is not a frangible bullet produced from powdered metal.
There are two philosophies when it comes to bullets. One that believes rapid expansion, moderate penetration and weight loss is best, while the other believes that moderate expansion, deep penetration and virtually no weight loss is best. Both have their virtues and applications, but why settle for one or the other when you can have both?
Controlled Chaos bullets offer the best of both. Once fluid is impacted, they shed the front portion of the bullet into multiple petals that radiate outward away from the bullets initial trajectory path resulting in a massive energy spike. The bore diameter base of the bullet continues and penetrates deeply in a straight line. Both the temporary and permanent wound cavity created by this bullet separation is dramatic resulting in quick incapacitation. The solid base creates additional tissue damage and often results in full penetration of the animal.
The Controlled Chaos doesn’t expand or fragment when it impacts hard barriers like drywall, only when it impacts fluid, where it expands, fractures and does it’s devastation. No other bullet on the market offers the accuracy and repeatable terminal performance of the Controlled Chaos.
