9mm Ammo Types and Uses
9×19 ammo is one of the more popular calibers available to American civilian shooters today. 9mm Luger handgunners know there are a ton of bullet types available to them with each having its own specific benefit based on the intended use.
Most shooters planning to punch holes in paper at the range will likely want to rely on FMJ or full metal jacket rounds. These are traditionally the cheapest rounds available to shooters and will provide the best option for training time.
Pistol owners looking to defend their homes and families will want to rely on a good jacketed hollow point or JHP projectile. These rounds are generally more expensive but offer a tip that expands upon impact with the target.
