G9 Defense has developed an External Hollow Point™ (EHP™) with ballistic results that can only be described as truly unbelievable!!
G9’s .40 S&W External Hollow Point™ was developed with defense in mind. Nothing should stand in the way of your ability to defend yourself and your own. G9’s .40 S&W, weighs in at 85 grains with velocities over 1640 fps. he .40 S&W External Hollow Point™ is a Barrier Blind™ product.
Our External Hollow Point™ Series does some extraordinary things
- Rifle performance in a pistol round at pistol distances
- Barrier resistant performance – Optimal penetration in soft media even after multiple barriers
- Minimal deflection through Barriers
- Light weight and high velocity provide optimal cavitation without over penetrating
- Civilian round designed to stop in Kevlar for the protection of our law enforcement
- High Speeds and Low Recoil which leads to faster, more accurate follow up shot

18” penetration in 10% Ballistic Gel with or without shooting through most barriers
The External Hollow Point bullet™ features proprietary geometry on the exterior of the projectile that produces a “Barrier Blind”™ capability and extreme wounding as it goes through the target.
The uniquely shaped tip allows penetration of common barriers such as windshields, drywall and vehicle sheet metal with no projectile deformation.
While designed to cut through hardened materials, the EHP™ round slows quickly in tissue to prevent over-penetration. The shape of the External Hollow Point™ is engineered to immediately transfer the maximum amount of energy laterally upon impact with tissue, creating a bursting-type entrance wound, large temporary cavitation and a controlled depth of penetration not seen in Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) or conventional Hollow Point (HP) projectiles.
In addition to reliable penetration and immediate energy transfer into the target, the lightweight EHP™ projectile greatly reduces felt recoil, allowing for rapid follow up shots.
Every aspect of the G9 External Hollow Point™ has been scrutinized and engineered to produce the best carry ammunition for a defensive handgun. As a responsible citizen, your training should include scenarios that are realistic. The ammunition you select should be up to the job as well.
