The 9x18mm Makarov was designed in 1946 and began seeing use in 1951. It’s sometimes also called the 9mm Makarov and 9x18mm PM, and during the second half of the 20th century the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc used it as their standard-issue cartridge. If you’re tempted to call it their version of the United States and NATO’s 9x19mm Parabellum, well, you’d be right. The 9x18mm Makarov is indeed similar to 9x19mm Parabellum, but the two are absolutely not interchangeable. In fact, the Soviet Union specifically designed the round to not work in NATO pistols in case their weapons were seized. If you have a gun chambered in 9x18mm Makarov, you have a firearm with an interesting background.
These 9x18mm Makarov rounds are manufactured by Federal. Each round weighs in at 95 grain, making them somewhat lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight enables these rounds to travel down-range at higher speeds and also helps keep felt recoil manageable. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and do not expand impact. In fact, target rounds such as these are prone to over-penetration, so be sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. This ammunition is great for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition from Federal you get 20 rounds of 50 rounds each for a grand total of 1000 target rounds. With that much ammo you can spend quite a bit of time shooting your pistol, whether you’re focused on mastering the basics of breath control and squeezing the trigger or honing accuracy and speed through advanced drills. Federal was founded in 1922 and has a solid and well-deserved reputation in the industry. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Place your order now and head to the range with your 9x18mm Makarov. Your gun is hungry; feed it!
