An M1152 spec 9mm cartridge is loaded with a 115 grain full metal jacket. Our military does not use hollow points during international warfare per the Hague Convention of 1899, which is why this round’s FMJ has a flat nose profile: It delivers a more injurious wound channel than a round nose non-expanding bullet. We assume you’re not personally going to conduct international warfare anytime soon, which is why we advise selecting hollow point ammunition for self-defense, but the flat nose FMJ is still great for target shooting since it cuts such a clean hole through paper. Makes it easier to assess how tightly you’re placing your shots!
M1152 ammo is not classified as +P. Regardless, its 1,320 fps muzzle velocity does make this ammo overpressure, so you must take care only to fire it in firearms that are rated for +P. This is new production ammo, not military surplus, loaded in the USA with noncorrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.
