The 9mm cartridge was created by Georg Luger in 1901 as an advancement of sorts over his earlier 7.65x21mm Parabellum round. It was the demand for a larger handgun caliber from the military that spurred him to this creation, and in 1902, Luger delivered the new cartridge to the British Small Arms Committee; it was 1903 when he presented the US Army with three prototypes, which were tested at the Springfield Arsenal. In 1910, the ogive of the bullet was altered slightly for improved feeding, and by World War I, firearms chambered in 9mmx19 Parabellum – also known as 9mm Luger – had become increasingly common.
In order to practice shot placement, you need TMJ rounds like these. They’re designed for target practice, tactical training, and plinking, and the way the bullet is enclosed at its base drastically reduces how much lead is released into the air when a round is fired. There are 50 rounds in this box, so you can load a few mags and get some range time in. These are medium-weight at 124 grain, so you get the lower recoil expected from a 9mm as well as nice speed. They have a muzzle velocity of 1,090 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 327 foot-pounds.
These rounds are manufactured by Speer. The company was founded by Vernon Speer more than 60 years ago, and if the name sounds extra familiar, that’s because his brother Richard also went into the ammunition manufacturing business. Speer manufactures all its ammunition at their plant in Lewiston, Idaho, to strict standards. These rounds have fresh brass, boxer-primed cases, so they can be reloaded, which makes it a fantastic deal. If you’re looking to spend some time at target practice using American-made rounds from a company with a stellar reputation, these Speer Lawman rounds are the right choice.
