This round’s performance is standard, which is not to suggest it is subpar. It features the 9mm’s middleweight 124 grain bullet, which offers a good balance in terms of recoil energy, muzzle velocity and trajectory. The FMJ is the most popular type of 9mm bullet because it feeds efficiently, mitigates barrel fouling and most importantly costs less to manufacture than the JHP. It won’t expand during penetration like a JHP would have, so you could do a lot better if you are shopping for self-defense ammo, although Armscor’s nonmagnetic bullet makes this ammo a great pick for training at any commercial gun range.
Armscor makes this ammo in the Philippines with new brass cases. They actually sell a lot of their 9mm cases on their own to handloaders, but they’re just a useful after they’ve already been fired. The ISO certified manufacturer only loads their nonmagnetic ammo with non-corrosive primers.
