Cartridges of the World is considered one of the most comprehensive guides to the various cartridges of the world (of course) and, as of 2012, has published 13 editions. In their 2006 edition, they made an observation about the 9mm that has been true for decades and will most likely continue to be accurate for years to come. It is, they said, “the most popular and widely used military handgun cartridge.” The 9mm was created in 1901 by renowned designer Georg Luger, and in the century since its birth, it’s enjoyed extensive use as the standard issue for law enforcement and the military. In addition, it’s widely used by civilians for sport and self-defense.
If you own a 9mm for self-defense as so many Americans do, you need defense rounds. These are JHP’s, so they deliver massive energy transfer and begin to expand immediately upon impact, and because they are jacketed, their expansion is controlled, allowing for deeper penetration. JHP’s cause massively devastating wound channels, and that is precisely what you want for true one-shot stopping power. These particular rounds are 147, which is a fairly heavy weight for the cartridge, lending it more hitting strength. They have a fantastic muzzle velocity at 984 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 316 foot-pounds. And because they’re made in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, they can be reloaded.
Prvi Partizan manufactures this ammunition at their plant in Uzice, Serbia. They’re the sole suppliers for the Serbian Army and local law enforcement and also supply ammunition to various branches of the military globally. And, of course, since their founding in 1928 they’ve been making ammunition for dedicated shooters just like you. There are 50 defense rounds in this box of Prvi Partizan ammunition, so you can put a few rounds through your 9mm to get a feel for their power and also keep your gun loaded for personal protection. Your 9mm isn’t just any handgun, it’s a part of the most popular handgun caliber in the firearms world, so feed it accordingly.
