Details

9x18mm ammunition has always been a hot round for the small framed Makarovs and other guns which prefer it on their platform. Sellier & Bellot has generally been producing rounds that are considered by American shooters to be hot rounds since they started distribution in the United States. The fact that the Makarov and associated firearm platforms are not only capable of handling hot rounds, but thrive on shooting the hottest rounds means this is a match made in heaven for Makarovs everywhere.

The ballistics are superior to the 9x17 (.380 ACP/Auto) and yet, the price is lower, the guns cost less to purchase and the shooter enjoyment is much higher because of the inherent reliability and ease of operation. It’s not a secret that many small framed guns that are chambered in the .380 Auto have finicky performance and spotty reliability until they are well broken-in. They simply don’t like certain rounds sometimes. But when was the last time you remember hearing someone complain about their Makarov pistol from a reliability perspective? Most of the complaints are that they don’t get to shoot more often because they find a lot of enjoyment in the range time they get with their firearms.

This is a 95 grain full metal jacket round in a brass casing with a Boxer Primer that achieves 1017 fps velocity and 216 ft. lbs. energy from the bore.

A: In most cases, 9mm Makarov is comparable to the best that can be expected from a .380 Auto. In a few cases, 9mm Makarov comes close to what would be considered a weak 9mm load. If used properly, 9x18/9mm Mak is suitable for self defense purposes.
