.223 tcx

Best all around ammunition made and the fastest shipping I have ever encountered. Owner is very knowledgeable and can assist with any questions you may have

62gr tcx

I've carried Pete's ammo for years even when he was with the other company. He will not send out ammo he wouldn't want to trust to defend his family. This ammo is exactly what I expected from years of knowing his ammo. This ammo has a OCD level of detail to it that most people will never pick up on. The details in the projectile and the cuts that control expansion where the most impressive thing for me. I tested a few rounds in my bolt gun and it fed perfect and was spot on for my zero. These hit with authority like pimp with a powdered hand that thinks his hoe owes him money. I have no doubt it will put meat in the freezer if I do my part.

223 62gr TCX (Total Copper X-panding) Solid Copper Defensive Ammunition

I’m very thankful for this American made goodness!! Good luck in 2021

Great Quality

Using these for my home defense and as duty rounds

Who do you trust?

I wouldn’t put my trust in just anyone. The same goes for quality ammunition. Sure I have some of the untrustworthy ammo, you know the cheap stuff (when it was cheap anyway) but that stuff is for random plinking, teaching inexperienced friends and family members. I use quality to zero/sight in my optics, ensure that “monster” buck won’t get away, have ready to go if I ever have to defend my family. This applies to all Defiant Munitions ammo, I TRUST IT. I trust the rigorous test process, the meticulous assembly and inspection process, and I trust the Man In Charge that he goes above and beyond to ensure his name isn’t tarnished by garbage, quickly thrown together ammo prone to failures as A LOT of other shelf ammo does.

Premier Munitions

Top quality munitions, from components, to the loading, quality control and packaging. Will echo my comments before, thank you for bringing these products to the market, have relied on your products for a long time, and will continue to do so!


Like in the other review, almost to beautiful to shoot, perfect in every way, exactly what I was looking for.

Defiant Munitions 223 62gr TCX/ 115gr 9mm

I recently purchased 223 ammunition from DM and 9mm DM from Ammo Supply Warehouse. I had no doubt how this ammo would perform based on the legacy of it’s producer, but I was even more impressed once I tried it. I’ve been in law enforcement for over 33 years and found this ammunition to be above many brands I have tried. Also, it never hurts to look great as this ammunition looks. Professionalism that actually works.
