The Home Defender HV-Star is intended for close range defensive use. This load gives shooters an effective option to a lead or copper projectile. This load can be used as a painful warning shot, but can also be lethal under some circumstances. This load will lose most of its effective energy beyond 15 yards.
The 1.25″ diameter Star has relatively high velocity but has very low mass. The large flexible design collapses on impact and imparts its available energy across a larger surface area than other projectile types.
Some level of injury should be expected and can range from serious injury or death to painful welts or bruising. Results can vary based on the weapon used, distance to target, clothing, body weight and part of the body hit.
