This is 9mm NATO ammunition. The “NATO” basically means it’s loaded to a higher pressure than the 9mm ammo you’ll typically find on store shelves. You wouldn’t want to run this hotter-than-average ammo through an antique pistol, as it’s pretty comparable to 9mm +P in terms of chamber pressure. Consult your handgun’s manual, but if it was made in the past 40 years it should safely fire this ammo.
This cartridge’s 124 grain bullet is loaded to a muzzle velocity of 1,200 fps. Expect more recoil than what you’re probably used to, but also look forward to a flatter trajectory that ends with the transferral of more energy to the target. Winchester’s FMJ is only designed to feed smoothly and reduce barrel fouling – it surely won’t do any favors to its target, but it won’t expand while penetrating it, either.
Winchester’s American-made ammunition has the brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers that provide reliable functionality, not to mention the option to handload once you return back home. These rounds also have highly consistent propellant charges to promote great accuracy.
