G2 Research is amongst the most innovative ammo manufacturers on the market today. The company recently released its Civic Duty round.
The Civic Duty bullet is a solid 100-grain copper alloy, CNC-machined bullet that upon entering the target immediately begins expansion as a large hollow point.

At initial contact, six large petals of the jacket peel back to create a fight-stopping wound. Unlike conventional hollow point bullets, which may not expand reliably due to clothing filling up the hollow point, the Civic Duty will indeed reliably open up because of its peeling petal design.
The Civic Duty round is currently available in 9mm Parabellum and a .45ACP round will be on the market in the near future. The Civic Duty round is designed to function exceptionally well at lower velocities (.45 ACP) and at higher velocities (such as the 9mm at 1,230+ fps).
Another thing: The lighter bullet weight greatly reduces felt recoil and muzzle flip, making for faster and more accurate follow up shots-if necessary.
In its penetration test, the Civic Duty round has shown 9-10 inches of reliable penetration in ballistic gel.

Priced at $41.99 for a box of 20, G2 Research recognized that “this is no low-cost plinking round. Then again, low-cost rounds are not made on CNC machines. The Civic Duty round is designed to stop a fight quickly and sometimes you must ask yourself: ‘Is my life worth two bucks a shot?'”
