9mm NATO ammo

Postby Nathan » Tue Sep 05, 2017 6:36 pm

This is my preferred practice ammunition, and this is the best price I've found it.

At 24 cents per round including shipping, that's a good price for NATO 9mm. However, I have never paid more than 20 cents for bulk 115 gr FMJ and I like it just fine for range ammo. An extra 4 cents per round really adds up with many thousands over the years.

9mm NATO and Blaser Brass Case, 124 gr. have been supurb in my now favorite 9mm handguns: CZ75B Matte Stainless & CZ85B.

Still going heavy with 147 gr HST for self defense, however which is extremely accurate as well in my smaller CZ RAMI.

Perhaps you can tell I'm now officially a CZ (hammer fired versions) fanboy.
Best regards,

CZ handguns should come with an addiction warning.

Yeah, buddy!

Back to ammo. In addition to a recent buy of the above mentioned favorites, I decided to pick up a case of German manufactured MEM 124gr NATO. On line reviewers said it is lower pressure than NATO, thought NATO was NATO, but I even seen some advertisement for 115gr NATO which just doesn't seem right at all!

Anyway, I've set this MEM aside in wait for an associate from Germany to visit for some range time between work. Love to rub it in that I can mail order German stuff that he can't really touch in his home country.
Best regards,

Tye

NATO standard is NATO standard, but the term "9mm NATO" is often inappropriately used synonymously with 9x19mm. While all 9mm NATO are 9x19mm, not all 9x19mm are 9mm NATO. If they can't even label their ammunition appropriately, I would also question their overall competence in loading it.
