Whether you call it the 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum, 9mm NATO, 9 millimeter, or just plain 9mm, 9x19mm ammunition is the most popular cartridge for handguns in the world – with more than 60% of the world's law enforcement agencies currently using this ammo. The role of 9mm Luger bullets in World War I and its continued popularity today testifies to its capabilities as an efficient and effective cartridge.
Yet the 9mm’s journey from a bullet designed for submachine guns to, perhaps, one of the most controversial self-defense cartridges in the world, has been one of exponential growth and development. This continues into today’s modern world, over 100 years since its conception.
9mm Ammo Comparison
Originally designed as a handgun caliber, the 9mm has reinvented itself multiple times throughout its brief 115-or-so years. In that time period, it’s been found in the barrel of full-sized handguns, pocket pistols, revolvers, carbines, and even submachine guns. This variety of uses for a single caliber leaves many shooters who buy 9mm ammo confused about 9mm Luger vs. 9mm NATO or 9mm Luger vs. 9mm Parabellum or 9x19mm vs. 9mm. The simple answer is that it's all the same – other than the NATO ammo being slightly heavier.
The 9x19mm Parabellum is an ammunition cartridge with a bullet measuring 9mm in diameter and a casing that measures 19mm in length. The name “Parabellum” comes from the motto of the first company to manufacture 9x19mm ammo, the German munitions manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM). The DWM’s Latin motto – “Si vis pacem, para bellum” – translates to “If you want peace, prepare for war,” and therefore Parabellum means “prepare for war.”
The cartridge is often labeled as the 9mm Luger, associated with its developer’s last name (in other words, the 9x19mm Parabellum and 9mm Luger are the same cartridge). Other times, it’s 9mm NATO, which is still the same size ammunition, but with a slightly heavier bullet – 124 grain (gr) compared to 115 gr – and loaded to a higher pressure (think +P) than traditional range or training rounds.
The 9mm cartridge, unlike most other ammunitions, has a slightly tapered casing. When stacking bullets side by side, notice the spacing difference between the bottom of the casing and the top. This increases the reliability and accuracy of feeding ammo from the magazine into the firearm, allowing it to happen quickly and without fail.
The Development of the 9mm
In 1902, DWM firearms designer Georg Luger developed the 9mm Parabellum as a service cartridge, designed for the DWM Luger semi-automatic pistol called the Pistole Parabellum, aka the Luger. He designed it to be lethal at 50 meters.
This new caliber improved on the previous handgun ammunition, which was large and heavy. Still today, the compact cartridge has less recoil and allows for easy handling. It’s lightweight, accurate, and because of its small size, handguns chambered in 9mm hold significantly more cartridges than those in higher calibers.
By the time WWI erupted, the first submachine guns were introduced and they were chambered for 9mm ammunition – given its ability to penetrate through field gear. Magazine-fed, fully automatic carbines, some of these submachine guns could shoot 900 rounds a minute.
After the birth of the Browning Hi-Power in 1935, and the gun’s prevalence in WWII, the 9x19mm’s popularity spread. As time passed, its use grew to encompass not only the armed forces, but police agencies and civilian self-defense as well. But the milestones for the 9mm didn’t end here – they continued with:
- NATO adopting the 9x19 Parabellum in 1955 as their official sidearm cartridge
- The U.S. Military exchanging the venerable .45 ACP ammo for the 9mm as their official cartridge
- Some of the country’s largest police forces, like New York City and Los Angeles, adopting the 9mm cartridge, which has been proven ballistically superior to the .38 revolver
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation returning to the 9mm Parabellum in 2014, after they had left it for a brief period of time for the more modern 10mm cartridges
By the 1990s, many civilian gun owners moved away from handguns like the .38 Special and .357 Magnum, favoring 9mm semi-automatic handguns. When it comes to 357 vs. 9mm, the 357 has more stopping power, while the 9mm has less recoil with comparable ballistics – making it popular for self defense. Ammunition availability has followed this trend, with 9mm cartridges more plentiful and easier to find than most cartridges. According to the 14th edition of Cartridges of the World, 9mm ammunition led the entire market in 2013, making up 21.4% of the whole cartridge market, followed by .223 Rem at 10.2%.
Is 9mm Ammo Good for Self Defense?
One of the things that makes 9mm ammunition and the handguns that are chambered for it so popular is that they’re easy to handle, yet still effective as a self-defense weapon. While not the most powerful ammo cartridge, 9mm ammunition allows for better control and quicker follow-up shots. This helps beginner shooters and those with smaller frames handle the recoil, which can be difficult with larger calibers.
As a concealed carry weapon (CCW), 9mm handguns remain easy to shoot, even in subcompacts. They’re easy to conceal on the body, especially for women. And with modern ballistics, self-defense 9mm ammo is as deadly as a .40 Smith & Wesson or .45 ACP cartridge. In 2014, the FBI released a report comparing the three cartridges and determined that the 9mm is, in fact, similar in both effectiveness and stopping power. And with less recoil and its ability to be controlled by everyone, the 9mm is an appropriate, universal weapon for organizations like the FBI, and also for civilians.
To combat marksmanship, it’s not just about the power of the ammo – it’s also about shot placement. And in many cases, even with people who regularly shoot high-caliber pistols, shot placement with a 9mm handgun is more accurate, more often.
9mm Ammo in Bulk
While these guns and rounds tend to have great precision, it should also be noted that 9mm ammunition is affordable. Full-metal jacketed (FMJ) cartridges, the kind used for practice on the shooting range, are readily available and much less expensive than its high-caliber counterparts. And when buying bulk 9mm ammo, it’s even cheaper.
For shooters who like to stock up on cheap range ammo, they can always find inexpensive 9mm. The more you price 9mm ammo, the more you will find that bulk rounds are the way to go.
The cheaper the ammunition is to buy, the more often a shooter goes shooting. And the more rounds they put through their firearm, the more practice they get. As with anything, the more practice, the better the skill. Because cheap 9mm ammo prices are common, those who own and shoot 9mm handguns are more likely to shoot the gun more often and become better skilled with that gun over others that they own – making it a great defense ammo.
9mm Ammo Types & Their Uses
For use in the armed forces, law enforcement, and self defense, there have been times the 9mm cartridge has spurred much debate over its lack of stopping power, especially when compared to .45 ACP ammo. Yet with modern technology, 9mm ammunition comes in a variety of types for a multitude of situations – including combat, on-duty, and defense.
- Unjacketed: Unjacketed ammo features plan lead bullets with no outer casing, making them slow and less powerful
- Full metal jackets (FMJ): 9mm FMJ ammo is, by far, the most common and features a lead bullet encased in copper or another hard metal; they’re used primarily for target and range shooting
- Jacketed hollow point (JHP): 9mm JHP ammo features a lead bullet with a hollow point inside, but is still encased in copper; these bullets expand on impact, increasing stopping power, and are used by the military, law enforcement, and for self defense
- Open tip match (OTM): OTM ammunition is designed for target and competition shooting, similar to hollow points, but not as deadly, these cartridges are accurate and consistent
- Ballistic tips: Hollow point ammo with a plastic tip, 9mm ballistic cartridges are designed for pistol hunting, bringing stopping power and distance
Beyond these differences in bullet design, there’s variances in bullet weight, casing, and pressure. Most FMJ 9mm ammunition weighs between 115 and 147 gr. General range rounds weigh 115 gr, while 9mm NATO is 124 gr, and some 9mm self-defense rounds are even heavier at 135 gr.
Casings on 9mm cartridges, sometimes referred to as the shells, are made from brass, aluminum, or steel. Brass is by far the most common due to the ease of reloading, while steel is used to keep costs down. Aluminum is becoming more popular because it’s affordable and lightweight, although it can’t be reloaded, making many avid shooters stick to traditional brass shells.
There’s a noticeable difference with more powerful ammo when it comes to its loaded pressure. 9mm NATO, self-defense cartridges, and 9mm +P or +P+ rounds – all four types of these cartridges fire hotter and have an increase in power due to higher pressure.
Are There Different Types of 9mm Cartridges?
While 9mm Luger ammo (aka the 9mm Parabellum and the 9x19mm) is the world’s most popular cartridge in both military handguns and submachine guns, it’s not the only 9mm cartridge available. A wide range of rounds featuring the 9mm bullet have been developed since its birth in 1902, some better than others.
- 9mm Ultra: Also referred to as 9mm Police, these cartridges were designed for the German police and fall between the 9mm Luger and the .380 Auto. The shell measures one mm shorter than the Luger and one mm longer than the .380, leading to a casing length just .04 inches shorter than the 9x19mm. Although this cartridge is difficult to find in the U.S., there are a handful of nice firearms chambered for it, including the Sig Sauer P230 and Benelli B76 Auto.
- 9mm Bayard Long: This 9mm cartridge was designed for the 1910 Model Bergmann-Bayard pistol, which was the official sidearm of the Danish military during the period. Although the cartridge (and the firearms they were designed for) were never manufactured in the U.S., some Spanish pistols were chambered for the 9mm Bayard Long and the ammo gained popularity after World War II due to military surplus.
- 9mm Browning Long: The 9mm Browning Long was a European cartridge designed for the FN Browning 1903 Model pistol, which became the official sidearm of Sweden in 1907. Many of these pistols were released to the public after WWII as military surplus and most have been altered to fire .380 ACP ammo.
- 9mm Mauser: The 9mm Mauser was used for a brief period from its development in 1908 for the Export Model Mauser until the gun was discontinued in 1914. Nearly a quarter-inch longer than the 9mm Luger, this rimless cartridge did have a comeback during WWI when some submachine guns were chambered for it.
- 9mm Winchester Magnum: Released in 1988, the 9mm Winchester Magnum was designed for the stainless steel Wildey gas-operated pistol used in silhouette competitions.
- 9mm Glisenti: The Italian military used the 9mm Glisenti during WWI and WWII. Although it highly resembles the 9mm Luger, they’re not interchangeable. The Glisenti has a significantly lighter load and the Model 1910 Glisenti automatic pistols the cartridge was designed for can’t handle the power of a 9mm Luger.
- 9mm ABC Mi-Bullet: Made by Advanced Ballistics Concepts, LLC, the 9mm Mi-bullet features a multipart bullet that uses Kevlar tethers that unlock and expand, allowing this 9mm cartridge to act like a shotshell. Designed as a self-defense load, the bullet reaches maximum expansion at 12 feet and holds its pattern until 21 feet, increasing the probability of hitting an attacker.
- 9x21mm: In countries like Italy, Mexico, and France, the government prohibits its citizens from owning firearms chambered in military calibers, which makes the 9mm Luger illegal. To overcome this, the 9x21mm was developed, measuring just two mm longer than the 9x19mm.
- 9mm Steyr: Designed for the Austrian military pistol, the Steyr Model 1912 Auto, the 9mm Steyr is longer than the Parabellum, with a case length of 23mm. Common in Austria, this cartridge is also found in Romania and Chile.
- 9x23mm Winchester: Winchester released its 9x23mm Winchester ammunition in 1996. Designed to meet the specific regulations of the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). A high-pressure cartridge, the 9x23 Winchester looks like a stretched out 9mm Luger, but has many internal differences.
- 9mm Federal: The 9mm Federal was designed as a rimmed 9mm Luger for revolvers – specifically the Charter Arms PitBull, a five-shot double-action revolver. This firearm was only briefly manufactured after the cartridge’s creation in 1989, as Charter Arms went out of business (although the company later reopened).
- 9mm Kurz: The 9mm Kurz uses a 9mm bullet in a shorter, 17mm casing. Designed in 1912 by John Browning, this ammunition is sometimes referred to as the 9mm Browning Short, but is most commonly known as the .380 ACP.
9mm ammo has come a long way since its conception over a century ago, dominating the ammunition market as well as law enforcement agencies to this day. With its many types of cartridges, variety of uses, range of ammo types, affordability (especially 9mm in bulk), ease of use, and ability to work in different firearms – the 9mm Luger (or whatever you’d like to call it) will remain one of the most popular calibers for years to come.
What is the difference between 9mm and 9mm Luger ammo?
Both terms, 9mm and 9mm Luger, represent the same ammunition, which is officially classified by the Sporting Arms and Ammunitions Manufacturers’ Institute (SAMMI) as the 9mm Luger. The 9mm refers to the diameter of the bullet and Luger comes from the Luger semi-automatic pistol, the firearm the ammunition was initially created for (designed by the German inventor, Georg Luger).
The ammo is also referred to as the 9mm Parabellum, which originates from the manufacturer’s motto: Si vis pacem, para bellum (“If you seek peace, prepare for war”).
How much does 9mm ammo cost?
The price of 9mm ammo depends on a variety of factors, including the number of rounds in the box, the type of ammunition, the brand, and if the ammo is on sale. Specialty rounds, such as bullets with ballistic tips, can also cost more. For instance, Magtech full metal jacket (FMJ) ammo designed for the shooting range tends to be less expensive than Hornady jacketed hollow point (JHP) rounds meant for self defense. Buying bulk ammo can also decrease costs.
What is the difference between 115 grain and 124 grain 9mm ammo?
Grain (often written as gr) refers to the weight of a bullet. The 115 gr 9mm bullet is the standard weight for the 9mm Luger, while the slightly heavier 124 gr bullet is the military style 9mm NATO. If all other factors are the same, the lighter 115 gr 9mm bullet will have a faster muzzle velocity, while the 124 gr bullet will have more muzzle energy.
What is the best 9mm ammo?
The best 9mm ammo depends on the shooters purpose, needs, and preferences. For target shooting, FMJ ammo may be best as it penetrates the target, is less expensive, and bulk 9mm ammo is readily available. For those carrying concealed for self defense, these rounds aren’t ideal as they can over penetrate and have less stopping power, making a defense or duty JHP round a better choice.
What is the difference between FMJ and JHP 9mm ammo?
FMJ stands for Full Metal Jacket and describes a bullet that has a lead core completely coated with a harder metal, most often copper. This full metal jacket reduces lead residue in the barrel and helps the bullet keep its shape as it travels towards its target. JHP stands for Jacketed Hollow Point and describes a lead bullet, jacketed in a harder metal, that has a hole in its tip. This hollow point causes the projectile to mushroom upon impact, reducing the risk of over penetration and creating more stopping power.
What is the quietest 9mm ammo?
The quietest 9mm ammo is called subsonic and it stays at a velocity below 1,100 fps, which means the bullet moves slower than the speed of sound. This ammunition doesn’t create a sonic boom, or sonic crack, which is heard when firing ammunition with high velocity. Although most 9mm ammo is supersonic, or has a velocity greater than 1,100 fps, some slower rounds can be found. Most often, subsonic ammo features a heavier projectile or comes in a specialty round, such as frangible ammo. Magtech, Hornady, and Sellier & Bellot, amongst others, manufacture subsonic 9mm ammo.
What is the best frangible 9mm ammo?
What 9mm ammo does the FBI use?
When the FBI returned to the 9mm as its bullet of choice, forgoing the .40 S&W, the agency opted for the 147-grain Speer Gold Dot G2. Similar to a JHP, the G2 round has a hollow area in the nose of the bullet, but unlike the JHP with its large cavity, the G2 features a shallow divot filled with a high performing elastomer. With these rounds, a shooter can expect uniform expansion, 12-18 inches of penetration, and consistent results.
What 9mm ammo does the military use?
Since the dawning of the United States in 1776, the US Military first used lead bullets, then full metal jacket (FMJ) ammo. Just as recently as 2015, the Armed Forces took a step forward and embraced more modern bullet technology by adopting jacketed hollow points (JHP). While some options are available for some military units, most use a 147-grain 9mm bullet.
What is the best 9mm ammo for self-defense?
The best 9mm ammo for self defense generally features a Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) bullet. These bullets expand on impact, creating a larger wound and more stopping power than the traditional Full Metal Jacket (FMJ). JHP are also less likely to overpenetrate the target. Multiple companies manufacture self defense ammunition and popular brands include Hornady, Federal, and Prvi Partizan.

Will be ordering again soon as ammo is good for target practice and arrives quick\ly
No jams, fail to fires and great fun
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
Bought 400 rounds, shot 230 so far. No problems. Every round fed and shot just like it should. Going to buy more of this.
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.
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.
Received my order quickly. No problems in my P-95, 92FS, CW9. Packaged well for shipping. I'll be back!
Works great, will buy again, target practice load, my 92F
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.
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.
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
I can say the value is great , and quality also is great, and performance is great for target practice and general plinking. No problem with the ammo and glad to recommend it for others to use.

The rounds shoot reliably and consistently. Great for practice at the range and a good value for the price.
Ammo.com is best supplier ive tried in awhile they have great ammo great prices and i got my order fast by end of week they are my new go to
Out of 2,500 bullets, 3 did not fire. Primers were definitely struck by the firing pin.
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.
Initial clip 15rds 1st 5 no problem then 7 did not eject completely. Cleaned gun next two clips no problems.

The ammo preformed as it should have.
The Best Ammo hands down,i want to order more!!!
Great product, performed as advertised!
Of course ammo is too high EVERY WHERE NOW, Having said that, good accurate range ammo. Be prepared to get the bore solvent out. It is dirty.
Great affordable round
Good shooting ammo for the money
Ordered this along with some blazer & gold dot, shipment came fast & packaged in a plain box very discreet. UPS did a good job on shipping updates, knew where it was at the entire trip. Will order again.
My XDM performed flawlessly with this ammo. I will buy it again
Great ammo at a competitive price
Sid V said:
Was satisfied arrived in discreet packaging Value is basically the same as a local gun and pawn, however more convenience in ordering. .. Going to enjoy target practice. Thank You
Great to find ammo and purchase was easy.
Not the cheapest ammo but good for target practice Just happy to be able to purchase some!!
I have and prefer the HST and Speer Gold Dots as my edc loads. The HST has the most expansion you can find in the gel tests if you pay attention to those. A bit pricey, but.....worth the extra for performance
Great ammo for Self-defense
Seems to work well for me in my Beretta 92s Italian Police turn-in. A possible alternative if you can't or don't want to use +P ammo in your 9mm However, as with the case with every self-dense loading fire at least a full mag (plus one in the chamber if this is how you would use it for self-defense) through the gun to make sure it feeds and ejects all rounds before relying on it for self-defense.
They had ammo when nobody else did! New customer and I will buy from Ammo.com from here on!!
These rounds are almost perfect, have fired over 2k rounds of this particular round and not one misfire or bad round. The downside is that the round is silver colored instead of gold colored, and if that is all I have to complain about, well enough said.
Outstanding value and quick shipping. No failure to eject or failure to fire. Provides for a great session at the range.
Used it for target practice. Low smoke and the pistol cleaned up well.
Good quality, Good company. I miss the 124 grain, but I am happy to get ammo. Loved living in Idaho.Rexburg rocks!. Good people.
ammo performed very well, and I would recommend this to anyone.
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.
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.
GOOD STUFF. DO NOT SHOOT ANYTHING OF LESSER QUALITY. MORE ACCURATE THAN I AM. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.
Lude dude. Dont ask said:
Reading only other review here. Wondering about how he said 1 out of every 5 failed to eject etc.. Could this simply be from limp wristing? I thought the two firearms mentioned were quality pieces. Why would my Glock not have this issue. Will sure more when i get home to double check but first impressions,,,, this ammo is great for that cost with no feeding, firing or ejecting issues. Hold your firearm tighter.
Luke dude don't ask said:
New to me. Cheep so I ordered 5 boxes. Just shot 1 full 15 round mag out of my Glock 43X. Loved it! Yes it does have very light recoil. Was dead accurate from approx 10 yards. SLIGHTLY less accurate from 15 or so but that was rapid fire in the dark. Fed fine, shot fine, didn't hem up (but it's a glock), and price is great for the result of product. My new training/plinking round.
I bought a couple boxes of the PolyFrang because it was cheaper and supposed to be cleaner. The bullets are too light... not enough there to force the slide all the way back and eject the shells (about one every five rounds). I shot them in a Walther PDP. My buddy tried them in a Taurus with same result.
I HAVE FOUND THIS COMPANY GREAT TO DEAL WITH.
This review isn’t necessarily about the ammo , all I can say is I like to cycle my ammo at least once a year and I’m getting what I feel to be the best and this ammo is it ! What I am writing today is first I don’t do reviews it’s just not my thing , but I’m making an exception because I’m extremely impressed with ammo.com ! I ordered on a Sunday night , not 10 mins after I ordered I had confirmation numbers and the way they did there emails to me are 2nd to know one ,giving you every bit of info you could possibly want and things were in such a professional manner . Excellent deal ( pretty much what I paid pre rona) like I said I ordered Sunday night snd it was at my door on Wednesday shipped in excellent packaging !
Great ammo and it got here in 2 days! Thanks!
I've shot a lot of rounds over the years, and Federal is one of the best with any ammunition. These rounds in particular are clean, accurate, effective, and to top it off, won't break the bank. If you're sceptical about ammo.com, you shouldn't be. Good pricing, fast shipping and most importantly I got exactly what I ordered. Couldn't be happier.

No complaints here. The price was right and the ammo performed without any problems. Definitely worth the money.
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.
Don’t let anyone tell you this stuff isn’t awesome. I can connect with steel at 200 yards with this out of my Beretta 92x. 5 out of 7 shots, just like that, nothing to it. The ammo is accurate and reliable. A few light primer strikes now and again, but run a double action and just pull the trigger again.
The Random Texan said:
I shoot this stuff all the time at the range, runs great in my Steyr L9, but definitely NOT in my Taurus G2c. The steelcase ammo eventually sticks in the Taurus, fortunately after discharging. My friendly neighborhood gunsmith showed me how to clear it, with a mallet and short length of dowel. So no Tula in that gun. But hey, the Steyr is my fave, and Steyrs have a rep for running sketchy ammo without a hitch.
I finally got time to go out and shoot this ammo, I had a few problems with my old Stallard arm's Maverick JS 9mm, but have had the same with most ammo. With my other 9MM I found that not only the Ammo was great BUT it is only as Accurate as the Shooter, Great Ammo, Great value well worth the price!
Used several different brands of hollow points and Hornady is consistently the best for reliability and overall manufacturing quality

I have been a soldier and a cop since I came home from Vietnam and these are just wonder my SIGSAUER P-228 is sold old that it say made in West Germany. NO IT IS NOT FOR SALE YET!
Completely Satisfied with Customer Service, They work out my Mistakes when I ordered, Package arrived on Schedule, In Great shape, no Damage. I am sure that this Ammo will preform well! Thanks
If I could give this ammo 0 stars I would. I bought some of this ammo because it was inexpensive and I wanted to see if my gun could run it effectively. I bought a couple boxes and went to the range. Not kidding, only 6 rounds into my first magazine and I had a complete malfunction. A live round was stuck inside the chamber and it would not eject. Had to call over a range hand to help with the issue, and he ended up having to unjam it with a barrel rod. I've shot thousands of brass rounds without a single failure, yet 6 rounds into this steel cased ammo and it had a massive malfunction. I do not recommend this ammo to anyone. It's not even worth it's cheap price tag, as I immediately retired the rest of this ammo stash. Stick with brass, trust me.
I've switched all my pistol home/personal defense ammo to frags.. Use them in my 223 and 300 BO also..
I ordered the 350 round boxes of blazer 9mm. When I inspected the ammo all the brass casings were heavily tarnished and corroded. I would be ashamed to sell this to anyone. The ammo looks like it sat outside for a year. Very poor quality I have left 3 e-mails and 2 voice messages since no one will answer the phone number. Poor quality and poor customer service!
My digs 229 and 320c both had jams and cleaning needed more than usual
As much as I go to the range which is every other weekend, I go thru a lot of ammo. So when I see a deal on bulk ammo I buy it. After shooting 350 rounds in a a day then clean my gun it's not that bad. It burns pretty clean..
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.
Very good ammo.
GGreat ammo for great price
Great ammo for a great price
very good quality and performance
I ended up placing an order during the pandemic and couldn’t have had a better ammo buying experience. Not only were they the only company with Gold Dot in stock, they also had it to me within just a few days! The order was exactly what I wanted, packaged well in the box, and all the ammo was in good condition. I will definitely be buying from ammo.com again!
Love this ammunition. Relatively inexpensive and shoots Great. No issues whatsoever. Will buy plenty more!!!
I started buying this ammo during the pandemic for one reason only - it was available! Since then, I have continued to purchase it for range use. It is clean, US made, priced reasonably and usually available here (Northeast Illinois).

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.
Excellent loads , Hornady product some of the best, I have used it for years.
haven't shot it yet, but bought it for my nightstand gun based on product reputation.
Easy order, great delivery and reliable ammo. Have used close to 1,000 rounds of this ammo in my Block 17 and never had a misfire or jam. Clean ammo also
thank you. the product performed as spec'd. i will purchase again. the ease of the overall transaction and shipping was also easy and flawless. thanks.
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.
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.com. 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.
I have a 9mm taurus g2 and these steel cased bullets jammed multiple times per clip
I shoot this stuff all the time and it runs FLAWLESSLY for me. I am a re-loader but, as long as I can get 9mm at $0.18 ~ $0.21 I am going to use this. Thanks Tulammo!
Bought an order of 900 and it came in a large spam can with no tool. Took a while using a screwdriver and mallet to chisel the thing open. Also wished I knew that indoor ranges wouldn't let me shoot steel cased ammo beforehand though I was lucky to find an outdoor range nearby. On 3 different days of shooting 100 rounds each time had a single casing fail to eject from my Taurus G2C. Thought it was something wrong with my gun but everyone at the range says steel case tends to do that. Overall I enjoy using it though I will get brass case next time.
the ammo itself is great. no issues. just make sure your range allows steel ammo before ordering this. any range near me wont let me use it. there are places i can use it so ill get through it eventually, but i wish id got brass stuff instead.
I’ve purchased 3,000 rounds of this Ammo. For practicing at the range ... can’t buy better Ammo!!
I’ve purchased 3,000 rounds of this Ammo. For practicing at the range ... can’t buy better Ammo!!
I have a remmington R51 9mm and a S7W shield 9mm they won't eject the steel case shells and they stick in the clip I won't buy any more steel case bullets
Ammo works just fine. Had an accidental double charge for the order which was fixed in a day or two with a single call to the ammo.com customer support.
I ordered a 1,000 round case of 9mm. I've shot about 800 rounds of it. A lot of it through my Ruger Blackhawk convertible and some through my xd . Not one single misfire and no problems of any kind. It's good stuff at a great price.
I was very happy with the results as I have never used this particular ammo before. No problems with it at all. I am also very happy with the service I received from ammo.com. This was my 2nd order with them and I will be back to order more in the future. Super fast delivery and excellent customer service and terrific prices. What more could one ask for?
I've run at least 500 rounds through a Springfield XD 9 with zero issues. Cleaner than other ammo around this price. I would recommend it to a friend.
good ammo for target practice.
Vegas Mike said:
it was a fair price. However I have shot 450 rounds so far through my EAA Witness 9mm and every single magazine had at least 5 or 6 rounds jam and get hung up. I tried other types of ammo but only experienced the problem with Tul Ammo.
Easy to navigate web page, got here in timely manner
Order was easy, ammo arrived quick, ammo shoots good
When I received the ammo it came in a regular box without any markings, the UPS driver asked if it was ammo due the weight. It was great to shoot with my fns 9mm, no problems at all. Later while cleaning my gun I had very little residue that I didn't need to clean it. I will guy from ammo.com again. Thanks
I purchased a thousand rounds and it arrived quickly and was well packaged.
Great ammo great prices

Have only used 100 rounds so far. No problems Good price
I have a Ruger SR9C & had no problem with the ammo. Some people said it left their guns dirty but I really didn't see much difference between it & other ammo, but I enjoy cleaning my guns anyway.
Picked up a 1000 rounds. Quick delivery fair price. No problems cycled fine through my LC9's, Kahr and HK. Will definitely pick up more.
When I seen the sale AMMO.COM had I couldn't pass it up. I have been shooting these since I got my XDM Mod.2 without problems. Great value .
I have only shot about 100 rounds ,but I have used Tulammo before ,in 223's. And never had any problem with it.I don't anticipate any problem with these 9mm.
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.com at the moment.
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.COM and I will be buying more ammo from you and telling other people about your website.
I have a SW Shield EZ and Glock 17, and I shoot CCI Brass and aluminum and they have never given problems. For my guns, it is a good deal. Shot metal jacket and had shavings on the slide and malfunction. CCI Brass and Aluminum have never given me a problem.
Recently shot 300 rounds in Walther ppq q5 SF, Canik Tp9SF, Sar9 USA and Ruger PC9 carbine. I had no misfires or FTE problems and the ammo was very accurate. When cleaning guns found little to no residue. I was very impressed and would buy again
Great ammo ithink
Blazer/CCI products are reliable, clean and usually affordable. Made in USA
I had no issues with this Ammo. It was affordable and a relatively clean round. I’d suggest it to anyone just looking to so some plinking.
I’ve used this Ammo before and I happened to ponder on this site while looking to buy more. The sale price was fantastic but as a first time customer I was worried about shipping as I’d had some long wait time with other companies in the past. I’m so happy to say that I ordered on a Saturday evening and by Thursday my order was at my door. You guys are awesome. Thanks!
This was my first online ammo purchase. I was very satisfied with the prompt shipment and the price was as good as I have ever been able to get Blazer ammo.
In addition to the value and performance I was equally impressed with the fast delivery. Between me and my neighbor we shot about 300+ rounds on the first day with no issues.

I recently bought a case of Blazer 9mm, 115 grain FMJ ammunition from Ammo.com for a price that I felt was very acceptable. I have been very happy with this transaction. The case arrived at my front door in just a few days. Today I went to the range and fired 100 rounds through my Springfield Arms XD-S concealed carry pistol and was very pleased with the performance of this ammunition. No jams and hit on target with every round.
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.
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.com pricing.
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
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!
Great reliable ammo that assures a great day at the range without issues
Scorpion Man said:
Ordered, it came quickly, and I was very pleased with the whole process from start to finish.
Good price and quality!!
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.com.
Ammo shots good, no jams or misfires so far. A little pricey, but all ammo is right now.
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.
Great buy on pistol ammo!
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.
3 time I have ordered from ammo.com.... same fast results. It's on my doorstep In 3 days. You guys are awesome
10 out of 10 on shipping time quality and performance!!!
They ammo was amazing as expected. But this is a real review for ammo.com this company deserves a damn medal for there services to us Americans here in this fuuzy time we are currently in. I placed a order after searching for weeks on end just to get my hands on some quality ammo. Ammo.com processed my order on a Friday and i had my ammo packed great and delivered on Sunday. True story! Ive never had such great service for a hot commodity item like ammunition through a pandemic shortage at that! Ammo.com!! Your the best! And keep on supplying I will most certainly keep on buying! #ProudCustomer #HappyCustomer
Reliable, about 500 rounds into the 1000 round case and no issues so far.
Delivered faster than expected
Great for the price and delivered to my doorstep when local stores seem to have trouble keeping it in stock.
As stated the ammo worked flawlessly no issues or concerns. Purchase with comfort knowing it works great.
it was great, bulls eye every time
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.
Bought 1000 rounds, put 100 through my CZ TS2 and my P320 M18, no issues. Will see how the rest of the rounds handle through the rest of my guns and update.
J Shooter said:
This ammo is terrible. I have been using it in my HKVP9SK, Fusion 1911 and Taurus PT92. At least one out of every dozen rounds or so, the casing expands and gets stuck in the chamber/barrel. If you just wanna target practice with it, fine, take some needle nose pliers. But I wouldn't want to defend my life with it.
I have shot hundreds and hundreds of PMC 115 grain 9mm in my p938 sig sauer not 1 mis fire not one problem.The Accuracy is second to none you must try this ammo you wont be disappointed.I have spent a lot of money on ammo that cost 3 times as much and none of it is as good as PMC not even close.
Nice well functioning value ammo. Accuracy was excellent - quality appearance and performance.
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.
Used this ammo for range training and qualification. Accuracy and dependability were excellent.
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.
Will buy more at this price
I found that the rounds purchased were great for the money/price. Rounds can only be going up in cost in other retailer sites and locations.
No more to say. Just wish I had bought before bo blathered about gun control causing prices up due to run on weapons.
Over all happy
I have only shot 50 rounds so far but not one problem feeding or ejecting. When I cleaned my gun, not much dirt. Recoil was a bit harsh but my Taurus G2 is brand new and needs break in time. I will buy this ammo again.

I have fired over 4000 rounds of this ammo in 4 different handguns, and I have never had a misfire! The consistency of performance really helps me measure my marksmanship objectively.
A yr ago or so a range worker told me about this brand being the best range ammo for it’s all around performance, no misfire, loading, extract of casing, jam ups, nothing!....so far been true to a “T” I been using since and not one hiccup..not one people, out of my HKVP9 not one jam up.
Have run a little over 250 rounds of the 1000 round order. I have not had any failure to feed rounds and no failure to extract rounds.
Only fire a couple of mags of this ammo without any misfires or other problems. This is an excellent range round.
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.
We shot 15K of 9mm ammo over 4 months in a handgun training course, including 5K of Winchester 9mm. Remington, S&B, Federal, and a other brands all ran flawlessly in all weapons. We were therefore very surprised when we had consistent problems with Winchester. The issues seems to be depth of the primers. With one Glock 19 (modified to a 4lb tirgger pull with a Pyramid striker spring,) 1 round in 5 failed to fire. The primers would show a dent from the striker pin but would not ignite. The dented rounds could often be reloaded and fired in other weapons (factory standard Glock 17, HK, and Sig) but even there about 1 in 4 of the dented rounds would fail (now showing two firing pin dents in the primer). In other weapons, this Winchester 9mm failed about in 1 round in 50 (roughly one dud ~every 3 magazines). Every shooter had more than one failure, regardless of what weapon they were using (Sig, HK, Glock, S&W, Ruger, etc). Winchester has been one of my preferred brands for years, but after this consistent level of failure I will not purchase Winchester 9mm again. Again, NO OTHER BRAND FAILED TO FIRE in any of the weapons used at this course.
Your have my business! That says it all.
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!
I shot several rounds and didn't have any problems....worked just fine!
very happy with purchase,will buy again.
I have shot just over 300 rounds at the range in my M&P 9C and nothing bad to say. Nice groupings. No failures. Excellent choice!!!
Great value and quality product. Will definitely buy again.
I will definitely buy more
love this ammo go to range ammo
Good deal and very happy with purchase. Bought a Walther creed and wanted to run some rounds thru it. Have fired 500 rounds no issues. Great service received ammo in a couple days
Excellent value, excellent performance and an excellent outlet for ammunition purchases from Ammo.com. 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.
It is an excellent and trustable ammo. Thanks!
Use ammo for target shooting. No jams and afterwards in cleaning the gun, found minimal residue. Would recommend
John S said:
I went through the entire 100 rounds in no time. Good old Remington "white & green box" ammo is well-made, and (so far) 100% reliable. I haven't had a single mechanical issue with this stuff (I've also used it a lot in the past). And the price is right for Practice Ammo!
bought a new khar cw9 ran all 100 rounds through it and had no problems whatso ever
I was having trouble with other brands of 9MMs. The extractor was unable to remove spent cases so the gun would jam. It would jam every 4th or 5th round. I would have to remove the mag, use a small flathead screw driver to pull back the next live round and shake the gun so the spend case would fall out. I tried three different brands before I bought the Fiocchi rounds. I cycled 150 rounds of Fiocchi 9MMs through my gun yesterday WITHOUT a single jam! Could not be more satisfied with the ammo's performance. Thanks.
