History of 9mm Ammunition
The 9x19mm Parabellum ammunition cartridge, also known as the 9mm luger, is the world’s most popular handgun cartridge, presently being utilized by more than 60% of the world’s police agencies. The 9MM semi-automatic luger became the standard handgun for several militaries during World War II, and the popularity of 9mm ammunition that followed is a testament to its abilities as a handgun cartridge.
In 1955, NATO adopted the 9×19 Parabellum as their official sidearm cartridge, and three decades later, the U.S. adopted the 9mm and retired the .45 ACP as the official United States Military cartridge. While many people still debate this decision, by the early 1990s, gun owners could find 9mm ammunition in almost every gun shop.
The cartridge was created by Georg Luger and released for sale in 1902 for use with the DWM Luger semi-automatic pistol. Since the cartridge is very compact, it is possible to carry a lot of 9mm ammunition while also reducing the weight of the ammunition load. Thus, many private gun owners and law enforcement agencies have stopped using guns like the .38 Special and .357 Magnum in favor of 9mm auto-loaders, and it is now much easier to find 9mm ammunition in comparison to the other two aforementioned cartridges. Eventually, even the Federal Bureau of Investigations started using the 9mm Parabellum for a period of time before switching over to the more advanced 10mm cartridges.
While the 9x19mm Parabellum ammunition cartridge is not the most powerful, 9MM ammunition allows for simpler control, which is beneficial for novice shooters that are unable to deal with larger cartridges effectively. If you’re not sure which cartridge would best suit your skill level, you may wish to talk with a qualified sales rep in an online shop that sells 9mm ammunition.
Even though the cartridge does not have the stopping power of the .45 ACP, it is still the best decision for most shooters, since it is lightweight and compact. The 9mm Parabellum cartridge has been utilized to resolve conflicts around the globe, and it is also used in hunting. The modern JHP loads are optimal for hunting, and JHP loads can be found in many of the same shops where there is 9mm ammunition.

"Fired about fifty rounds through my XDs. Had two failures to extract with the spent casing stuck halfway in the chamber. Both times same exact stoppage. I think the shell may have been weak and expanded to much. I think they need to find better brass. Although it functioned in my Glock just fine. So it can't be too bad. "
- Charles said:
"I went through about 500 today. In the first 100 I had a fired shell jam so the action couldn't even open. This was my S&W M&P 9 which cycles ANYTHING. Had to hammer a screwdriver down the barrel. Everything fired fine again until a little over 300 rounds and had the same type of jam, except it was live! I whacked the gun against a table about 10 times facing down range until it finally fired off, still couldn't open the action, so applied the hammer/screwdriver technique. Pretty great ammo, but I'm assuming a few were loaded a bit too hot and the brass expanded to the point of jamming up in the barrel."
- Big Jim said:
"Purchased this MBI ammo last year and did bot get to shoot it until recently and was quite surprised at the accuracy I was able to achieve with this ammo. Mine came in two small boxes and they fit right in a 50cal ammo can. Great ammo for the money and will purchase again from these fine sellers."
- Ray said:
"Price was great, but I do not like the bags, when you open all the ammo goes all over. I prefer boxes. I shot over 250 rounds no misfires. "
- Zaza said:
"We have had no problems with the ammo and will buy again. "
- watermn said:
"bought this ammo to run during a 2 day Uzi course. shot as well if not better than some of the factory orginal stuff. 25 rounds in 2 1/2 seconds in a 4 inch group. "
- PistolPete said:
"Fine product I will order again. A win-win. Good range time & support NRA. What's not to like?"
- bigbukt said:
"haven't had time to shoot yet but with today's prices this was a great deal definitely will shop here again "
- Little D said:
"Feeds Great The Only problem is the small plastic bags that they place 100 rounds per bag alot of them had busted open so they might as well just sell "
- Ryanxd9 said:
"Great ammo. Best service and turn around. Thank you keep up the best service."
- Tim said:
"So far it has worked well, as requested, No issues."
- Daniel said:
"No jams, fail to fires and great fun"
- Chibob said:
"I purchased a Sig 2022 and called Sig for break-in information. They said they liked people to shoot 124 gr. rounds for the first 100 rounds to properly break-in the weapon. I purchased the MBI ammo for that purpose. I"ve since ordered 500 more rounds of 9 mm and 200 res of .40 cal . No FTE's, No FTF's with a new gun. Think that says it all "
- Flametamer said:
"Bought 400 rounds, shot 230 so far. No problems. Every round fed and shot just like it should. Going to buy more of this. "
- Matt said:
"Ordered 1,000 when supplies were tighter a few months back. First few hundred worked fine (not one problem), but then in the last 100-bag alone, I had 2 FTEs and one misfire that was so bad, I had to drill the bullet out of the bore. Hope it's just a coincidence they all came at the same time. Will fire the last 400 rounds with curiosity before ordering more."
- freddy said:
"I used one gen2 glock 19 one gen4 19 one gen 3glock 17 the only problem was the new only 20 rounds through it will fix it self after a couple hundred rounds.nice for the price when you cant find the time to load your own."
- KD said:
"Received my order quickly. No problems in my P-95, 92FS, CW9. Packaged well for shipping. I'll be back!"
- rip01 said:
"Works great, will buy again, target practice load, my 92F"
- Mustangrob said:
"Value was great, quality was ok, a lot of rounds seemed to have small dings/dents in the casings as well as the bullet itself. Performance is still a little in doubt, shot numerous rounds thru my Beretta 92FS and did well, thru my new Nano didnt perform as good and had one FTE, maybe because the gun is new, I dont know."
- dennis said:
"Shot about 300the rds thru a new ruger sr9. Had a couple of failed ejections,it maybe because of the new gun.im sure this will correct as the gun gets broken in.satisfied with everything else.just a little distressed that the ammo here has doubled in price.if it corrects I will be buying more."
- maur800 said:
"ordered 2 9's and 2 40's had no problems with either of them, quick service and curtious, will definitly order again. thank you"

"Bought the ammo just for the price not thinking about the ammo, I believe its a korean company so it seemed a little bit of a chance. Love it!!! went through both boxes and want to order more!! Highly recommend"
- freddy said:
"PMC is a brand I really trust. Have fired several hundred rounds thru my guns without no problems at all. As for ordering from ammo.net its the best way for me to get my ammo. I have never had any problem ordering and they ship really fast. I will continue to use ammo.net to supply me with ammo."
- Richard said:
"Used this in a match over the weekend. Flawless. Will buy again. Great price, excellent service from Ammo.net"
- jim said:
"I used this ammo before never had any problems with it in my glock . also used the same brand in my other Glock in 40s&w happy with it also"
- Rob said:
"I bought this ammo to use in my daughter's Ruger PK95 for a concealed carry weapons class. I performed very well. Now that I have learned a little more about guns, I will shop for a gun of my own. Once I have a new gun, I will be ordering more ammo."
- maloosha said:
" My ammo was here within 5 days. It performed wonderfully and I now have my husband and two brother in laws buying from Ammo.net as well and we are all very happy with service, prices and quality. It helps also that a portion of money spent goes to NRA."
- mosby said:
"just bought a 9mm auto pistol and am sorting it out to see what it does and doesn't like. it likes the pmc."
- Noel RN said:
"Purchased 200 rounds from ammo.net, smooth transaction. I used it on my Beretta PX4 for target shooting at the range, no hiccuffs, no malfunction. American Eagle is an excellent ammo. I'm a satisfied customer, will buy again. I just wish the price comes down a little bit in the future."
- Richard said:
"With the millions of rounds of ammo currently in demand......Ammo.net is one place you can count on for your quality ammo, fast delivery, great service and there when you need them!"
- Slim Dav said:
"I bought 1000 rounds for a training class and I shot about 600 rounds in that class. I had no problems. I was very pleased."
- Zippo said:
"I bought 250 rounds. I have only shot 50, but have had no feeding or ejection problems. It is at least as accurate as my 56 year-old eyes can shoot and was much cleaner than the cheaper ammo on the market. Like I said, I will buy more as it becomes available."
- no nickname said:
"Purchased this ammo, had never used American Eagle before but knew it was made from Federal which I've never had any issues with. Ammo performed great, no FTF's whatsoever through my Springfield XDM, 100 rounds no problem, will buy again for sure. "
- Subsailor Joe said:
"Already through 400 rounds and have had no hangs, jams, or failures. Very consistent ammo for my Springfield 1911 Range Officer 9mm. It does leave a bit more residue, but I am a veteran and fanatical about cleaning. Overall a huge success. The service and shipping were first rate. I will be coming back for more."
- Mrs C said:
"Would definitely buy this again. I came back from range gun was pretty clean compared to other ammo I've used."
- Bill said:
"Even though I am an Army Vet (Airborne Infantry, M60 gunner to be exact), I had never shot a pistol. That being said, I have used now about 500 rounds of this order and have not had one issue. I find my rounds tend to go where I want them give or take... I have use my Sig P226 as well as my Kimber stainless Custom Match II and did not have any malfunction what so ever. The order came in a reasonably fast time and I thought the price was good for this market. The brass is also good for reloading if you are in to that sort of thing. I am saving mine to either reload or resell. I put 4 stars on value for this because I think that the market prices are way too high and should not really be a reflection of this item and Ammo.net pricing."
- cecil said:
"I've run about 400 rounds so far and haven't had any issue. Performance and Quality seem to be about the same as any other ammo I've ever shot, hence the 3 star rating on those two, but value is great. haven't seen better prices anywhere"
- Arnold said:
"Ammo was delivered on time. Quality of ammo has been without any defects in the units I have used to date! Thanks for your great service also!"
- renoboyd said:
"I purchased a case for a frontsight course 4 day Handgun course. It worked perfectly, the price was good and everything came together thanks for ammo.net. "
- mongoose said:
"Ammo shots good, no jams or misfires so far. A little pricey, but all ammo is right now."
- Harry said:
"I ordered ammo after finding it harder and harder to find the ammo at the gun store. The price was great I saved about $100.00 and it was delivered within a few days. I'll be placing another order for 45 ammo in the next week, I'm very happy with the service and will be doing all of my ammo buying from you guys. Thanks, Harry Norfolk, VA."
- MTgooser said:
"Great buy on pistol ammo!"
- D said:
"Great customer service, placed the order last friday fully expecting not to get the order with all that is going on, you won't find a better company to deal with, as for the Ammo, top notch perfect for my use."
- srs said:
"Shoots fine in my ruger."
- BSR said:
"No cycling issues with Glock 19 and 17.. Worked very well."
- Rico said:
"Fired serveral hundred (Glock) without a malfunction. Stuff shoots great. Unfortunately the price keeps creeping up but I suppose thats just a sign of the times. "
- andy said:
"Fires fine, but seemed to jam up in the magazine with more than 5 or 6 rounds"
- spymyeyes said:
"The ammo was VERY dirty and the residue from firing told me it is cheap propellents. It cycled perfect and every shot went bang, so good job overall."
- Rick said:
"I ran 200 rounds through Glock 17 and S&W m&p9c, shot great no misfires or FTF, wish it was more readily available"
- Glenn1903 said:
"I ran roughly 200 rounds through my wife's Ruger SR9. Absolutely no misfires! Clean-up was a breeze. Some of the best target ammo I have used to date. Will be doing much more business with you."
- cflglock said:
"I've run 500 rounds of this ammo through my Glock 19 and Glock 26 with no problems at all. I think it is a very good target ammo at a very good price."
- vtsnow said:
"I've been trying a bunch of different ammo lately and I was really impressed with the S&B 9mm 115gr. FMJ round. Not a single misfeed or FTF, as expected, and less cleanup. I will be ordering more for sure."
- This is my Glock said:
"My Glock eats this stuff up. I like it so much I don't want to shoot the remaining 700 rounds I have left. I just stash it with 300 rounds of 9BPLE and take it out to drool over it before I head to the range with PMC for plinking."
- Terry said:
"I find it a great value and excellent quality and fine performance ammo and would happily recommend it to anybody else to use. I have used it in both my 9mm pistols, SCCY CPX-2 & Kel-Tec P-11. "
- Highdesertrat said:
"This ammo has always worked well in my S&W M&P and Ruger P-95. I have never had a problems with misfires and accuracy is good. Great price also."
- Orion1958 said:
"I find it a great value and excellent quality and fine performance ammo and would happily recommend it to anybody else to use. "
- WJS said:
"I shot 25 rounds out of Springfield XDM w/5.25" bbl and 25rds out of Ruger LC9. They shot flawlessly in both guns. The ammo was delivered to my front door in just a few days.(Faster than I expected.) I'm happy with my purchase."
- JP said:
"Used this ammo for range training and qualification. Accuracy and dependability were excellent."
- Hawk99TA said:
"Great product at a great price. Great FMJ for practicing/plinking. Shot clean and accurately. I like that a certain percentage goes to the beneficiary of your choice. Will buy again."
- BonBon said:
"Will buy more at this price"
- billy said:
"ammo performed very well, and I would recommend this to anyone."
- JB said:
"Great ammo. Shot rounds through SIG PRO 2022 9 MIL and BERETTA Px4 STORM full size without any jams or problems. Very accurate ammo, great quality, shoots clean. Will buy again. Would have been Five Stars however cost of ammo was a little too high."
- tbjr48 said:
"It was a great price for the ammo and it shoots great with no problms. Will order more when I get done with this lot."
- TOM said:
"GOOD STUFF. DO NOT SHOOT ANYTHING OF LESSER QUALITY. MORE ACCURATE THAN I AM. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR."
- Blueturtle said:
"Have shot 9mm 40SW 45ACP made my TulAmmo. No failures, accurate, not bad price. A little dirty. Can't shoot at the range I usually go to, so I shoot outdoors at a friends range or at my Mom's 15 acres. Shooting ranges dont like the steel and off course they tell you it will ruin you guns."
- Tbone said:
"I had no problems with these rounds great for target practice."
- Hunter said:
"Negligible difference between this and "name-brands" that cost more than double the price!"
- Krakrjack said:
"I have shot about 600 rounds of this throw a Glock 19 Gen 4 with no FTF's of any kind. It is a little dirty...but that's what they make cleaning kits for....."
- Bob said:
"Outstanding value and quick shipping. No failure to eject or failure to fire. Provides for a great session at the range."
- steven said:
"Used it for target practice. Low smoke and the pistol cleaned up well."
- Dick said:
"Good quality, Good company. I miss the 124 grain, but I am happy to get ammo. Loved living in Idaho.Rexburg rocks!. Good people."
- dog said:
"very good shells"
- Bob said:
"One of the few places that had the 9 mm ammo that I've been trying to get for 3 months. I think our government is intentionally making ammo hard to get. I only wish I could prove it."
- Lew said:
"Ordered this product via this website due to the lack of availability elsewhere. "
- fishmonkey said:
"Sergio, you're spot on. It's an old style jhp with rumored poor expansion in short barrels (4-stars). I've got a CZ75 and SP-01, so I don't expect to see any problems. Federal Premium is always reliable; this is no different. (5-stars) Nothing special, but JHP of good quality. It wasn't the worst deal around — I was just resigned to buying DoubleTap for a lot more. I'd rather pay for this than that, or junk, or nothing at all. (3-stars just based on what 9mm SHOULD cost — and I'm sure not saying anything bad about Ammo.net — they're great.) "
- Sergio said:
"Hey, when it's all that's available, you buy it !! Pleasantly surprised-- fired about 175 rounds--no problems whatsoever. Groups were roughly equivalent to high-dollar ammo (from an LC9)--OK not exactly a sniper weapon. Bottom line is that Ammo.net had the product in stock---no one else did. Is it worth 75c a round? Probably not--- is gas worth 4.00 a gallon? Probably not. Bottom line is that I snagged 1000 rounds of perfectly acceptable ammo--at a price based on supply and demand."
- bodie said:
"I bought this ammo on a hunch to feed my 5 nines. It is a little lighter than I wanted, but within parameters. So far it has held up perfectly; no failures to fire, no FTEs, nothing wrong, and good groups. I'm glad I bought it. "
- dannyk said:
"it was great, bulls eye every time"
- redeyerich said:
"Shot approx. 100 rds each thru the following: Sig 226, Marlin Camp 9 and Hi-point 995. Not a single problem. Liked it so much I purchased another 1000 rds."
- Kris said:
"My wife and I both love this ammo for range ammo. We have never had a failure or jam in either of our pistols. And unlike our local stores it seems to be always in stock here!"
- Nubb said:
"I shot several rounds and didn't have any problems....worked just fine!"
- Kushlover said:
"This ammo is about 1/16" to long to fit in my 30 round mags. but they do fit the factory mags. I would suggest blunting the tips."
- Bigman1938 said:
"Very good ammo."
- Lance said:
" I looked at reviews on this 9mm speer gold dot ammo and most reviews were good so I decided to give it a try it is not +P but it is good shooting ammo burns clean and never a misfire and the price isn't bad will purchase again. THANKS Ammo. net"
- Ron77581 said:
"I purchased two boxes of Speer 9mm 124 gr JHP Gold Dot ammunition from Ammo.net. The ammunition arrived as promised and was high quality ammunition at a very fair price. I will be buying again from Ammo.net."
- Andre said:
"We had a couple of ejection issues at the range but I am sure that this was more to do with insufficient grip stiffness with my wife's small hands and nothing to do with the ammo. I had no issues."
- Rick said:
"Initial clip 15rds 1st 5 no problem then 7 did not eject completely. Cleaned gun next two clips no problems."
- J Freeman said:
"After going from store to store, I finally went online and selected Ammo.com to purchase my 9mm Ammo. They made it easy and I received my ammo shortly and that performed fantastically. "

"Good over all. "
- Ron said:
"Excellent loads , Hornady product some of the best, I have used it for years."
- mosby said:
"haven't shot it yet, but bought it for my nightstand gun based on product reputation."
- freejac said:
"I purchased 250 rounds of this ammo, and was totally taken back by the response time getting the ammo. I ordered on saturday night online, received it tuesday afternoon. I have since run one box through my Suomi M31, a Finnish sub machine gun, and it fired flawlessly. No hangs, no misfires, no low blow back pressures. And the price was great. Only problem ( non problem) was one box busted open in shipping, go figure Fed-Ex with the gorilla baggage handlers.... ;-)"
- vtsnow said:
"I've only shot 50 rounds so far, but the Fiocchi 9mm 115gr. FMJ round seems pretty good. A little dirtier than expexted, but no misfeeds or FTFs so I am happy. A little more expensive than the S&B ammo that I prefer."
- JT said:
"This product worked great. I shot at a Tactical Response course where it rained all day and I was getting mud in my mags even and this ammo still cycled through my Glock perfectly. I will say the ammo was a little greasy feeling when I got it. I'm not sure if this is some sort of case lube or what but it functioned great and I saved a few bucks. "
- Cobra said:
"I wanted cheap ammo for the range. I like to just get out and shoot. My order came quickly and in good shape. Even had an issue with Fed Ex damaging a package but resolved it efficiently with ammo.net. As far as the product is concerned it shoots well. Have to spend some extra time cleaning after the range but I knew I was going to have to. The product is perfect for what I ordered it for. I got it cheaper even with shipping than I could find anything local. I got it timely and in good shape. I have recommended this site to all my shooting enthusiast friends. "
- Frank said:
"Its was nice to have it show up in a week. had been a long time but man its expensive going pinkling now days. "

- tight fists said:
"Couldn't find any ammo locally, but like everything in Washington and crude oil, there seems to be a shortage in brains and pipelines. I found AMMO. NET to be fast and a reliable source."
- Murcus said:
"With the shortages in Ammo I was very happy to receive what I was able to get. The ammo cycled and shot great. It was to bad there wasn't more of it."
- d6 said:
"great ammo! "
- Rob said:
"I picked up 6 boxes of this for my Glock 17. Seeing as how their .45 ammo runs through my Glock 21 with zero problems. This ammo had about 5 failure to fires, 2 or 3 failure to ejects, and due to failed ejection failure to feed. All failures were within less than 150 rounds.1 spent casing was stuck in my barrel and it took me over 20 minutes to get it out. Not to mention inconsistent muzzle flash. I'm really hoping I just got a bad run of ammo, but I CANNOT recommend their 9mm ammunition."
- Ken said:
"No misfires and consiistant performance with two different handguns (Beretta Storm9 sub & S&WM&P9). This ammo exceeded my expectations - glad I got 1000 rounds. I'll get more. Delivered in two days."
- J Freeman said:
"After going from store to store, I finally went online and selected Ammo.com to purchase my 9mm Ammo. They made it easy and I received my ammo shortly and that performed fantastically. The 92.6 is very smooth and packs a big punch"
- Puckie said:
"When all outlets for my pistol ammunition had been sold out for weeks; I resorted, for the first time to going on-line to search for needed product. Ammo.net hooked me up with a superior 9mm stock, to what I had been using before for a very reasonable price and had my ammo in stock. I will never return to buying from local outlets. I am now a Ammo.net customer. Thanks for the excellent product/service. Kirk Foster"
- Terry said:
"I find it a great value and excellent quality and fine performance ammo and would happily recommend it to anybody else to use. I fired this ammo in both my SCCY CPX-2 & Kel-Tec P-11, 9mm's. "
- ronson said:
"Went to the range and fired off 150 rounds, each shot went off without a hitch and was very pleased. Expecting to purchase some more ammo because of recent purchase of a .45. Thanks for the follow up."
- Dinstar1 said:
"Excellent value, excellent performance and an excellent outlet for ammunition purchases from Ammo.net. Especially the fact that I have not had to wait more than 11/2 days from purchase to delivery. All the reasons why I have passed my purchasing experiences on with everyone I know."
- Rico said:
"Have fired a couple thousand rounds of this ammo and it is great stuff. All fired from a Glock without any malfunctions. I bought it when it was cheaper per 1k rounds so the price has really soared. Still looks like the best 9mm value on ammo.net at the moment."
- Mdow81 said:
"Ordered 1000 rds of 115 grain 9 mm. Shot all butt 100 at the range with three dif guns. Had zero problems. Great product and at a fraction of the cost that the range gets. Will be ordering more soon along with some colt 45 long to go in the new judge. "
- opds9091 said:
"I am a ARMY Vet from OPERATION DESERT SHIELD/STORM back in 1990-1992 and have been shooting for a long time. When I shoot I look for a few things like, the weight, the feel, and the accuracy of the bullet. I own 3 Glocks, Smith & Wesson M&P9 and a Sigma and a Ruger all in 9mm and go to the range at least 2-3 times a month and each time I go I'll shoot on average 500 rounds each time and for me the CCI Blazer 9mm FMJ fits me well. Other websites charge anywhere from $250-280 for a 1000 rounds and they send them out for delivery and it takes about 7-10 days, BUT, when I found this website and looked into to it and it sounded good. So I bought my first 1000 rounds last week and it was at my door in 3 days and the cost for shipping and ammo was so much cheaper and faster. With that said I'm ordering another 2000 rounds today. This is just how I feel and everyone else is different. So thank you AMMO.NET and I will be buying more ammo from you and telling other people about your website."

"normally remington has a hard time in my ruger sr9c, but this nickel plated umc target did great, not that dirty compared to the regular remington umc, and it seemed less smokey, I hope they make more of this stuff, I like it alot!!! just keep the price down and it's a winner. "

"No more to say. Just wish I had bought before bo blathered about gun control causing prices up due to run on weapons."
- steve9199 said:
"I haven't fired any of the rounds I recently purchased, but having used Remington ammunition before, I know it's very high quality. I've heard some glowing reviews of the Golden Sabre ammunition, and I can't wait to try it out."

"Bought 500 rds. first mag, would not feed, S&W M&P, tried it in a Taurus 709 same thing, tried some in a hi-point 9mm, made it through the first mag then the second, hmm what;s up with this? third mag 2nd round no feed, 4th same. Sorry to say I wasted hard earned money on target and practice ammo I can't use. Don't buy."
