    Hi,

    I'm doing research on a murder case, yet I'm completely in the dark when it comes to weapons and ammunition.

    Anyway, I hope I'm giving you enough information, but would it be possible to use 9mm silvertip hollow points bullets in a Star Firestar M-43? Any specific brands you would use as STHP bullets?

    Thanks in advance!!

    What are you asking? The only "brand" of Silvertip hollowpoint bullet that I am
    aware of is Winchester. They own the Silvertip name.

    9mm Silvertip hollowpoints should work just dandy in any firearm chambered for 9x19,
    9mm Parabellum, 9mm Luger, 9mm NATO etc.--they are all the same cartridge.

    They should work fine in a Star Firestar m-43.

    Thanks BillM,

    as I explained I have little knowledge about ammunition and thought STHP was a generic description. Thanks for helping!
