How are 9mm Browning 115g ammo
Expensive but good quality.
Just picked up 1k. Brand new.
OK- my crystal ball is in the shop for an oil change. WHAT DID YOU BUY?
Did you buy 9mm Parabellum (also called 9mm Luger, 9x21) that was manufactured under the Browning brand name- or did you buy 9mm Browning- which is another name for .380 (prvi partisan still uses that name)
At 115 grains it is likely 9mm Parabellum- most .380 is 95 grain max- but pay attention. There are about a dozen different "9 millimeter" cartridges- and they do not interchange.
My apologies. 9mm Parabellum. And thank you for the advice.
I thought 9mm. Luger or Parabellum was 9X19. 9X21 is a round used in Europe or places a military round is forbidden to use by civilians.
Yes. 9mm Luger also goes by: 9x19, 9mm Parabellum or para, 9mm NATO.
.380 goes by:
.380, 9mm Browning Short, 9mm Kurtz, 9x17mm
then you get into the less common 9mm Makarov (9x18), 9mmUltra, 9mm Largo, 9x21, 9x23, and so on.
9 mm is a popular diameter. But the lengths and casing shapes, along with rim types can make ones head spin a band means folks need to know what they are truly in need of to feed their firearms.
Will plead senility. 9mm Parabellum IS 9x19. 9x21 is the 9mm IMI/ 9mm Italian.
There is also 9x17, 9x18 Ultra, 9x23, 9x25 Dillion, 9mm Makarov, 9mm Federal Rimmed, 9mm Glisenti, the .38 ACP, .38 Super and a 9mm shotgun shell, AND there are others.
And just to make things more interesting 38 SPC and .357 Magnum are also 9mm diameter.
9mm rounds are .355 but I get what you mean
The heavens opened today.
Hornady Critical Defense 186 gr 45 ACP 20 rd box , 18.00 bucks.
Havent seen that round for less than 24 bucks a box in several years . Could only get one box though
9X18 is .365. The Commies didn't want NATO troops to be able to chamber any captured ammo.
Yup, finding components for my makarov has been fun...
That's a start. Next time go for at least 2K if it's available.
The ammo shot amazing everyone. Thank you.
