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 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 the .45 ACP. 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.

- Bramson Muges said:
"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."

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."

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."

"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."

"I have run thousands of rounds, thru a number of 9mm hand guns. Most recently a Glock 43. I have never had a misfire, jam or any other type of issues using this ammo. I also use Sellier and Bellot for my Sig P320c .45 acp and a Sig .40 S&W and have never had any issues with this manufacturers ammo."

- Noel RN said:
"Purchased 200 rounds from ammo.com, smooth transaction. I used it on my Beretta PX4 for target shooting at the range, no hiccups, 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."

- 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. "

"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. "

"Only fire a couple of mags of this ammo without any misfires or other problems. This is an excellent range round. "
- 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. "

"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."

- Glenn said:
"Out of 2,500 bullets, 3 did not fire. Primers were definitely struck by the firing pin."
- 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."

- 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.com — 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.com 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. "
- 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!"
- charlie said:
"bought a new khar cw9 ran all 100 rounds through it and had no problems whatso ever"

- 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.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. "
- Doug said:
"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. "
- Sid said:
"No more to say. Just wish I had bought before bo blathered about gun control causing prices up due to run on weapons."
- JW102282 said:
"I purchased a small amount (100 rounds) of this ammo strictly to use for personal defense. I wanted a heavier hollow point round in order to get the most stopping power and expansion I can from a 9 mm. I only fired fifty of the one hundred rounds because I wanted to make sure that they feed into my weapon and fire without any problems. Again, I feel that I would want to run at least 200 - 300 of these rounds in order to give a better review. However,the fifty that I did test fire operated from my Glock 26 Gen 4 without any issues. I did notice that with the magazine fully loaded with these rounds opposed to the 124 grain and some of the 115 grain that I was running, the magazine was a little more tough to get it to lock in while loading. Just had to push/hit the mag in a little harder. Operationally though, they ran well."

"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."
- Matt H said:
"The price on this ammo is amazing, but it is dirty. I shot 250 rounds through a Glock 17 and needed to clean my weapon after 150 rounds. My daughter also bought some because I told her about the great deal. She was shooting a Sig P365 9mm, the Sig does not like the flat nose on this ammo. She shot 100 rounds and was having problems feeding before she finished 50 rounds. We cleaned her weapon, and still had the same problem. I had no feed issues with my Glock. I'm not real sure why Federal decided to go flat nose on this round when they have round nose on their 115 & 124 grain rounds. As good of a deal as this was I don't think I'll be purchasing anymore of this ammo."
- Ronjai said:
"Had to use the higher grain bullet in my sub compact auto. The federal 147 grain bullet fed flawlessly and provided very accurate results. "
- 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.COM and I will be buying more ammo from you and telling other people about your website."
- 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. "
- Froggo said:
"I recently purchased 1000 rds of this stuff and have shot half already with ZERO malfunctions. All went bang (w/o a double-strike) . It's lighter, easier to handle and was very affordable when I bought it at $169 for the 1000. And...maybe it's just me... but the recoil from this ammo is almost non-existent. Plus, the box's 100rd capacity makes for great storage & convenience at the range. "
- NJ said:
"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."
- 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."
- Vin said:
"Ruger Security 9- I've recently just got into shooting within the past two years. So I'm still learning but...THESE are the greatest rounds I've ever used. I usually use 115 grain so I'm a little baffled that the 124 which have more power have LESS recoil. I was hitting every target whether it was the silhouettes, cans, bottles, I'm talking aim and pull in consecutive motion. I haven't had this from other brands (not downing they're great as well). Does ammo really make that much of a difference?"
- J Freeman said:

- golfnguns357 said:
"Every ammo I have purchased and used that has the Federal name on it has been the creme de la creme in my book. The 147 grain JHP is no exception. Whether it's for my revolvers, pistols or long guns I have complete confidence when Federal is with me."
- James said:
"I have fired this ammunition through my Glock 19 (G3). In the past, I have used Blazer 115 grain, and decided to try this 147 grain variant. I did not notice any significant difference - perhaps a bit less recoil with the 147 grain. This ammunition fires reliably, as I would expect from this maker. I particularly like Blazer 9mm aluminum casing ammunition because of its lightness, affordability, and the minimal residue it leaves."
- Ed said:
"A good quality LRN round. A little bit of smoke, nothing that will effect your vision. Very accurate. Excellent price!!!"

"Best self defense ammo to carry I have seen. At this point I can't imagine carrying anything else for my own protection. It is pricey but my Life and family are worth every penny for CC."

"Awesome bang for your fed-rsrv notes! These go through my Ruger SRc9 like buddah, no hang, clean firing, pretty accurate even w/out my laser. Ordering a 1000 more now! Thanx Ammo ppl"
- John S said:
"I bought this stuff just to try it, really. I've only fired about 20 of the 50 rounds by now. I will say that I experienced no issues with it (jams, etc.), and it's easy to put on-target from up to 25 yards. It did leave a little extra soot in my Glock 19, and it produces a fairly strong "burnt powder" smell when fired. Not a big issue at all, but it does seem to fire "dirtier" than most ammo I'm used to. I don't have much experience with Frangible ammo, but it seemed to work exactly as advertised."
- AD said:
"Right price, no issues whatsoever. Shot without issues in my Sig X-5 and my wife's Firestar. Recommend it"
- Jeep said:
"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!"
- Gunlaw said:
"We shot a few hundred rounds through several handguns. The only one that had any trouble was my wife's Si P938 (9mm). A few FTF even though the primer cap was dented it wasn't hard enough to set off the primer."

- Dave said:
" Most known name brand ammo does near the FPS as they advertise. When I shoot those other quality name brand ammo out of a 5" barrel, the chrono shows my gun shooting the bullet a little faster than advertised FPS (my gun is shooting the ammo slightly faster than advertised, because most 9mm ammo is rated for a 4" barrel, I'm shooting for a 5" barrel). This ammo as advertised at 1237fps, the best I could get is 1160fps (the lowest was 1105fps, the highest 1160), and again, that result from a 5" barrel, most handgun ammo is rated using 4" barrel. This ammo seems to way overrate the FPS"
- big bob said:
"first time I used this ammo, started out good but then it started jamming, Used 5 different clips but the rounds would not cycle all the way. I had 350 rounds of cci brass, Shot the full 350 with no hang up."
- IMc said:
"Awful! On a Glock 19 experienced a phenomenal about one misfire in ten (primer dented, but not firing). Same round could then be fired (most of the time) in a Glock 17, where the misfire rate was only about 1 in 25. Experienced same (1:25) error rate shooting in both a Sig320 and HK MP5K. This is the ONLY band ammo we have had any problems with, including cheap CHinese stuff. Same guns fired 10K rounds of Remmington in the months prior this purchase and experienced NO misfires. "

"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."
