9mm Luger (other times referred to as 9mm Parabellum or 9x19mm Parabellum) is a rimless, tapered firearms cartridge. It was designed by the now world famous Georg Luger in 1901, and is considered the most popular handgun and submachine gun cartridge on the market. This is attributed to its low cost, availability, and performance in ballistic tests/combat. A study that was conducted in the early 2000’s shows that roughly 60% of firearms used by police are 9mm. The same study also concluded that the 9mm cartridge alone made semiautomatic pistols more popular than revolvers. Nationwide 9mm has been produced by/for over 70 countries and became the standard caliber for NATO.
Performance wise 9mm Luger was only intended to achieve up to 50 yards and still be considered lethal. Advancements made in powders and projectiles over the years has allowed the cartridge to surpass 50 yards and maintain moderate recoil. This allows 9mm Luger to achieve similar performance to other pistol calibers of greater size. 9mm Luger being a smaller cartridge makes it ideal for shooters who factor in magazine capacity without sacrificing performance. This has carried over to the reloading community making 9mm Luger one-of, if not the most popular reloaded cartridges. Since 9mm Luger is still a highly used and sought after cartridge that means there is typically an abundance of once fired brass available on the market.
When taking a look at the numbers, most 9mm Luger loads deliver incredible penetration and expansion when using a premium hollow-point projectile. 9mm Luger bullets come in a huge selection, varying from weights of 90-147 grain (115 grain being the most common). Depending on the bullet and powder used, 9mm Luger can achieve 300-700 foot pounds and can be dialed in for the best use depending on the situation at hand.
