The average bullet travels at such great speeds it surpasses the speed of sound, resulting in its creating a supersonic shockwave, which make the loud cracking noise shooters associate with a round being fired. If you’d like a softer sound or own a suppressor for your handgun and would like to utilize it to its fullest, why not try subsonic ammunition? Subsonic rounds travel below the speed of sound in order to be as quiet as possible, but that doesn’t mean they don’t hit hard. In fact subsonic rounds typically use heavier bullets in order to retain the greatest energy possible despite their lower velocity. Due to those heavier bullets some shooters use subsonic rounds entirely to reap the benefits of greater weight and energy; whatever reason you have, look no further than these subsonic rounds from Sellier and Bellot.
Sellier and Bellot was founded in 1825 by Louis Sellier, a German businessman. He got the business started manufacturing percussion caps for the infantry at the request of Francis I, the Emperor of Austria and was later joined by Jean Maria Nicolaus Bellot; together, they were able to make the business flourish. Today Sellier and Bellot is located in Vlasim, Czech Republic, and is a subsidiary of CBC, a massive ammunition company of worldwide renown. They’re an ISO-9001 certified company and have earned a number of awards including the Deutsches Waffen Journal readers vote for ammunition.
There are 50 subsonic rounds in this box of ammunition from Sellier and Bellot. At 140 grain they’re fairly heavy for 9mm, which is standard for subsonic ammunition. These are FMJ rounds and do not expand on impact, making them ideal for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. To get the most out of subsonic rounds they should be used with a suppressor, however, even without a suppressor they’ll still be quieter and have that greater weight behind them. This ammunition has a muzzle velocity of 1001 feet per second and muzzle energy of 312 foot-pounds. Sellier and Bellot produces these rounds in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded. For a quieter shooting experience, feed your gun these 9mm subsonic rounds.
