9mm Luger Ammunition for sale
We carry a full line-up of 9×19 ammo for sale, including full metal jacket rounds for training and jacketed hollow point rounds for self-defense. As you might know, 9mm goes by a number of different names but all refer to the same NATO-standardized cartridge. Some of those other names include:
– 9mm luger ammunition
– 9×19 ammunition
– 9mm NATO ammo
– 9mm Parabellum
When most folks say “types”, they are generally referring to the bullet that’s loaded into the 9×19 cartridge. There are a lot of different bullet types used but predominantly, you’ll want to know the difference between full metal jacket (FMJ) and jacketed hollow point (JHP).
9mm FMJ ammo is sometimes referred to as “ball ammo” because the round is designed to remain intact and won’t expand upon impact with the target. These bullets aren’t particularly sophisticated and are generally cheap enough that shooters use them for range training. Full metal jacket ammo is ideal for buying in bulk.
Jacketed hollow points are typically much more sophisticated. Ammo manufacturers spill lots of money into the research and development of these loads and typically, this is what you’ll want to use when your life depends upon the ammo. These loads are designed to expand upon impact with a soft target. That means you are looking to inflict maximum damage on the target in order to neutralize a threat. Typically, hollow point ammunition is what police officers use on-duty.
Today, 9mm is the most popular caliber in the world, still used by the militaries of hundreds of countries and relied upon by millions of American civilians as their go-to caliber for self-defense. Many concealable pistols can easily handle 12-15 rounds of 9mm, making it superior to larger calibers when it comes to the number of rounds you can comfortably carry with one magazine. You’ll generally find the rounds available in reloadable brass cases or in steel-cases. The steel-cased 9mm ammunition is especially common from Russian manufacturers like Wolf and Tula.
So, if you’re looking for a caliber that’s relatively cheap to train with that you can afford to buy in bulk but still has the required velocity and expansion to bring down a threat, 9mm ammo is just about the perfect fit.
