9mm Ammo

The 9×19mm Parabellum (also known as 9mm Parabellum or 9mm Luger or simply 9mm) is a rimless, tapered firearms cartridge.

Originally designed by Austrian firearm designer Georg Luger in 1901, it is widely considered the most popular handgun and submachine gun cartridge due to its low cost and extensive availability. It is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as in many non-NATO countries.

The round was originally designed to be lethal to 50 meters (160 ft), but is still lethal at longer ranges.

Attempts to improve the cartridge's ballistics came in the early 1990s with the widespread availability of high-pressure loadings of the 9mm cartridge labelled a +P or +P+ for even higher-pressure loadings. Always consult your firearm's owner's manual to make sure if your firearm can handle overpressure ammo.
