When it comes to a reputation for quality firearms, Colt’s Firearms Company has a long legacy of making quality guns for generations. To continue that legacy for quality, Colt has collaborated with Doubletap Ammunition to create match and defensive ammunition for the most popular pistol and rifles that Colt makes.
The defensive line is available in .380 ACP, .38 Special, 9MM, .45 ACP, 10MM, and .223 Remington. The match ammo is available in 9MM, .38 Super, .45 ACP, 10MM, .223 Remington, and .308 Winchester.
“This collaboration of design is the best representation of the Colt brand. It has less recoil so it is quicker back on target, quicker for follow up shots, less noise, less muzzle blast; all while having proper penetration and good expansion,” said Doubletap President Mike McNett.
Doubletap is known across the firearms industry for making the highest quality defensive, hunting, and match ammo that performs when the shot counts. Working with Colt to design an ammo that performs in their firearms, whether older or newer, and gives optimal performance, was right in Doubletap’s ballpark.
The real benefit of the match ammo is that it performs very much like the defense ammo, providing similar recoil so that those practicing with their defensive gun have a lower cost, range-safe alternative. Additionally, the match loads are rated with power factors, listed on each box, that meet IDPA, ISPC, and USPSA competition requirements.
The defensive ammunition offers reliable expansion, at least 14 inches of penetration, and is some of the best performing and lowest cost defensive ammunition on the market, with all of the calibers coming in at less than $20 for 20 rounds.
In addition to working up the loads, Doubletap is making the components in their Cedar City, UT factory, so you have a quality American made, hand inspected product that you can trust to perform, whether in competition, or to defend your life.
