One of the conclusions of the study was if the detective had his 380 loaded with FMJ ammo the ensuing shoot out would have only been with one bank robber. That speaks volumes for the benefits of adequate penetration.

Actually, all 9MM FMJ ammo was developed for the military. That's why they call it 9 MM NATO.

I am not aware of any LE agency, at least in this part of the country that allows it. It does minimum damage with grossly excessive penetration.

Most LE agencies today using 9MM use the Winchester Ranger "T" 127 grain +P+ JHP. That's what I was issued for duty ammo.

But LE needs are totally different from apartment needs. The 9BPLE +P+ 115 grainers will give more than adequate penetration for 99.9 percent of non-LE use. Home defense does not mean shooting through car doors or windshields. That's what the 127 +P+ were designed for.

Light hollow points give a good balance between adequate penetration and excessive penetration for home/personal defense..

Actually NATO is the load specification. NATO loads have more powder than ammo loaded to SAAMI/ANSI specifications. Not quite as much powder a +P load. Be careful don't blow up your gun!

Here is an article that explains NATO specifications much better than I can.
http://gunnuts.net/2009/04/03/9mm-nato-vs-9mm-luger/

Here is the Winchester ranger ammo. Not a bad price I might order 500 rounds.

Not to my knowledge. Rangers have always been their own entity.

How to survive living in an apartment? Camera outside in the hall, Big thick Steel Door with deep Screws, lots of locks, deadbolts and slide-bolts, a steel bar across it and big dogs! City/ Apartment dwelling is like fish living in a barrel just waiting for the cat! Thats just my opinion as a Redneck Country Boy, get out of the cage before its too late!

Any ammo with a cross inside a circle on the head stamp is NATO (STANAG) spec.
