Made from solid copper, the Fluid Transfer Monolithic-EL-XD bullet is “barrier blind”.
It easily penetrates barriers such sheet metal, auto glass, and bone while maintaining
the ability to effectively transfer energy to the target. The EL-XD creates massive
amounts of drag within soft targets and was designed from the ground up to meet the
FBI’s specifications for bullet performance and penetration.
Rather than using the bullet’s energy to initiate expansion, like a traditional deforming
hollow point, the EL-XD’s energy jets fluid radially away from the projectile’s path
through “flutes” on the bullet. The massive pressure difference created by the flutes
concentrates fluid, as well as bone/tissue fragments, and rapidly accelerates them
destroying its surroundings. By using a design that doesn’t rely on expansion, the
EL-XD is able to provide more consistent and predictable performance across a wide
range of situations.
