Both product lines are offered in 9mm Luger, 40 S&W and 45 ACP but the real difference is the bullet design. Defense™ Ammunition is loaded up front with Nosler’s Bonded Performance™ bullets at +P velocities while Match Grade™ Ammunition is loaded up front with Nosler® Sporting Handgun™ bullets. Since the Bonded Performance™ bullet is bonded, it will yield higher weight retention and less fragmentation compared to the Sporting Handgun™ bullet line.Tags: Ammo, Ammunition, Defense Handgun, Match Grade Handgun
