I was planning on purchasing a couple boxes of Lehigh Defense - Xtreme Defense in .380 but I couldn't find a place on their website to submit a photo of my FOID/DL. While looking I came across their shipping policy page and for Cook County, IL (where I live) it literally says "No ammo without FFL". What freakin nonsense is this? Not only is there no restriction (other than sending in your FOID/DL and it being shipped to the address listed on your ID), but there has NEVER been a law/bill/statute requiring ammo to be sent to an FFL. Have any of you successfully purchased from Lehigh Defense before (via their website or otherwise), or tried and were not successful? I sent an email to their customer service/sales rep to ask about this policy they have listed, but I thought I'd toss out another line here to see if anyone else has encountered this.

Thanks

Never heard of this before. I've come accross some online retailers that won't ship to Cook County as well as others that will not ship to zip codes starting with 600,606, etc. My go to site for ammo is www.sgammo.com they have very fair prices and fast shipping.

Underwood Ammo loads Lehigh Defense bullets. They will sell to you.

I heard back from Lehigh (very fast response time, I'm impressed). I was told I'm correct and to place the order, then send an email with my DL/FOID attached and reference the order number. I'll be placing my order today. If nothing else, they're off to a great start with their prompt and friendly customer service.

That is great that they fixed the problem for you.  Hopefully they will fix the wording on their site for all.

I have tested extensively both Lehigh Defense's versions of their Xtreme Defense and Underwood Ammo's version of the Lehigh projectile, in both gelatin and, more important, in pig carcasses along with various barriers and protection.

 

Hands down, the hotter versions that Underwood produces, in .380 through .45, do more tissue damage and have better penetration than the Lehigh versions. Not that the latter are bad, by any means, but Underwood has maximized the terminal ballistic performance of almost all of Lehigh's projectiles.

 

Plus, they are an Illinois-based company, and they are very easy to order from. They also have great prices for their ammunition.
