Built with all new components, the TCX9115 is a 115 grain, 9mm Luger+P Solid Copper Defensive round.
The TCX9115 offers a muzzle velocity of 1,275 feet per second and 415 ft/lbs of muzzle energy, as tested in a standard Glock 17, 4.49 inch barrel.
DEFIANT MUNITIONS uses only the highest quality primers, powder, brass casings and projectiles in all of our Premium Defensive ammunition.
TCX (Total Copper X-panding) ammunition incorporates a 100% solid copper projectile, with both interior and exterior serrations to ensure maximum expansion. There is no bi-metallic bonding to separate or otherwise fail, as can occur with JHP (Jacketed HollowPoint) projectiles. The result is consistent penetration that meets or exceeds FBI standards, and expansion that reliably outperforms typical JHP (Jacketed HollowPoint) projectiles.
All of our defensive auto pistol brass (except our subsonic line) is case cannelured in house to prevent bullet setback.
Why is this important? Bullet setback can occur with a pistol malfunction, or from chambering the same round over and over again. This can lead to possible CATASTROPHIC failure. The cannelure line puts a “crimp line” where the base of the bullet ends up. So if bullet setback were to occur, the bullet will NOT push past the cannelure line. It’s a time consuming process, therefore, VERY few ammunition companies cannelure their brass. Here at Defiant Munitions we want our customers to have nothing but the BEST, most reliable round possible. Extra steps will always be taken here to ensure the safety and quality of our products.
At DEFIANT MUNITIONS, we don’t simply test each new product upon release. We test every lot of ammunition for muzzle velocity, muzzle energy, penetration depth, expansion rate and weight retention to the highest standards. We go the extra mile to ensure maximum performance and consistency.
Additionally, every round is inspected and chamber checked by hand before packaging.
We build these to our exacting standards to ensure you have only the most consistent and reliable defensive ammo available.
Don't forget to order some Defiant Munitions 9mm 115gr FMJ Training/Range ammo. It is designed to match the Point of Impact of our 9mm 115gr TCX ammo, making it the perfect training load!

Did some gel testing and the expansion and penetration depth of these rounds were highly consistent, shot after shot. These will be my new carry round.
Ammo that always performs, and is meticulously quality controlled thru every process of manufacturing. I bet my family's lives on it.
Had an informal recommendation from John Lovell to try this round out. Consistently consistent shooting. Hard hitting and canoe-making performance. This has become my primary defensive load. I’ve grown to realize that this is ammunition you can trust your life with.
This is by far the very best self defense ammo on the market period.how huge it expands and how reliable they are makes the second to none.thank you Pete for making amazing Quality ammo I will forever only but your ammo keep up the amazing work brother.
It is the prettiest ammo I have ever seen out of the box.
You can't beat the quality and reliability of this ammo. This combines the superiority of total copper ammo with the quality of one of the best in the business. If you want ammo to depend your life on, you won't be disappointed in this. You get reliable ballistics through and through, and it will last a long time, even wearing it up against your sweaty skin during a humid Louisiana summer. When your looking for new carry ammo for your defensive pistol, look no further.
Owner is 2nd generation manufacturer and stand up guy. This ammo is what I trust when it’s life or death
I bought 200 rounds of TCX to load up all my carry guns, I put some rounds through my carry gun to double check my gun ran it. All I have to say is wow. This round is flawless and shoots so soft for its power. 1/2 groups no issues. I’m impressed and will be exclusively running DM from now on. Great ammo made by great people. When I had a question about another product Pete called me personally to answer my questions, now that’s the real deal!
I have shot over 200 rounds and I have to say no issues at all. TCX hits hard also even stays together when it hits steel plates and that says something! I just ordered another 300 rounds and one day I hope to be able to have at least 1000 rounds of the stuff. Just shot another 18 rounds today one mag o point and no issues. If you are not using this in your EDC get it together. Don’t talk about cost you get 50 rounds. Ammo isn’t cheap and this stuff is the best out there. Only thing I would like to see is test TCX sold, they look so cool all expanded.
I love these total copper rounds. The design on these is like nothing else. They're as reliable as FMJ. They're barrier blind. They retain virtually all of their weight on impact, and they expand reliably. It's also nice to have a case cannelure on my defensive rounds so I don't waste my good ammo when I want to dry fire. I can't recommend these enough.
