The 9x19mm Parabellum/Luger was designed in 1901 by Georg Luger and began seeing regular use in 1902. It was first used by the German company Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) as the chambering for their new Luger semi-automatic handgun – the fact that the cartridge, the handgun, and the cartridge’s developer all have the same last name wasn’t a coincidence. It didn’t take long for the cartridge to become widely used and popular, though, in fact according to STANAG 4090 the 9x19mm is the standard round for NATO forces. On the civilian market it’s the most popular self-defense caliber of all for semi-autos; if you own a gun chambered in this caliber, odds are it’s intended for personal protection.
These 9mm rounds are a lightweight 115 grain. At this weight they can reach greater speeds while flying towards targets yet still retain enough weight to pack a decent punch on impact. These are Solid Copper Hollow Point (SCHP) rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact, penetrating as they mushroom to create a devastating wound cavity. Being SC rounds means they’re lead-free which keeps the air cleaner during firing and also keeps your gun cleaner. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1065 feet per second and muzzle energy of 290 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense use.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from PNW you get 20 defense rounds. With 20 rounds you can keep your gun loaded and ready for self-defense. Keep in mind, though, defense rounds deliver more power overall than target rounds, meaning greater felt recoil and more muzzle flip. The only way to ensure accurate follow-up shots in a self-defense scenario is through realistic practice, which is why it’s a good idea to order extra boxes of your chosen defense rounds for training purposes. PNW produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can reload spent casings. All ammunition is loaded to a high standard and undergoes strict quality control measures. To keep your gun loaded and ready for the worst-case scenario, get your order in today. Don’t wait another second.
