- Q & A
In 2006 the book “Cartridges of the World” proclaimed the 9mm the “world’s most popular and widely used military handgun cartridge.” It certainly seems to be an accurate statement; the 9mm spent years as the standard issue for law enforcement agencies and many branches of the military and remains perhaps the most popular self-defense choice for civilians all over the country. Newsweek magazine even credits the 9mm with being the reason semi-auto sales finally surpassed revolver sales. Whatever the reason, the 9mm’s stopping power combined with its manageable recoil, accuracy, and affordable cost has made it a favorite for many shooters, and if you’re one of them, you need ammunition.
This ammunition is 115 grain, making it on the light side for the cartridge while still reasonably weighted. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and are capable of massive energy transfer on impact as well as impressive expansion. Their jackets control expansion to such an extent that they mushroom more slowly and penetrate more deeply than the average HP which means they create deeper, more devastating wound tracks, which equals more effective stopping power. This ammunition is meant for self-defense but should also be used for self-defense training. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1160 feet per second and muzzle energy of 344 foot-pounds.
There are 1000 defense rounds in this case. Federal manufactures this ammunition at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, where all ammo undergoes rigorous quality control and extensive testing. Federal was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn, and for almost 100 years they’ve been producing ammunition that not only meets but often exceeds the expectations and needs of shooters just like you. This is good quality, American-made ammunition. With this 1000-round case you can both keep your gun loaded for personal protection and also get some training time in. In the world of firearms, practice really does make perfect, so place your order and get to practicing.
Shockingly good on all fronts!on 2/3/16
Amazing experience all around. Easy to order, received it very quickly in perfect condition, and shoots great. I am a happy customer and will be for the foreseeable future.... Thank you!
This ammunition is neither the Federal Classic 9BP, nor the 9BPLE. It was a contractual over run for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. ( don't call them Mounties they hate that ) The Fedral 9BP is loaded at more or less depending on your barrel type and length 1150 f.p.s and exhibits true match grade accuracy! It's near "ball" shaped ogive allows it to feed flawlessly in even balky guns. The Federal 9BPLE is a +P+ cartridge usually sold only to Law Enforcemnt agencies. It operates at a MUCH higher pressure then even NATO spec ammunition. The up side is that it has garnered a sterling reputation as a fight stopper. This ammunition, the XM9001 is exactly half way between the civilian 9BP and LE 9BPLE! It is a +P loading that out of most Glock polygonal rifled barrels, will do an honest 1200 f.p.s. This is top shelf ammunition and a bargain price! As a law enforcement firearms instructor with 30 years of experience, I can tell you this is great ammunition! Match grade accuracy, a proven bullet that expands in bad guys, higher velocity then the typical Federal Classic line, but not the smoking high +P+ pressures associated with the 9BPLE. This ammunition is a winner for carry, home defense and at this price, for setting aside "in case of". BTW/ this very load was used to stop the jihadist attack on the Canadian parliament by the hero Sergent at Arms of Parliament.
