BEST 9MM AMMO FOR TARGET SHOOTING
Round-nose 9mm ammo is great for target shooting, and is the least expensive. The cheapest 9mm ammo usually has a lead, round-nose, and a steel cartridge casing. While an occasional jam at the shooting range may be acceptable using cheap 9mm ammo, be sure to scrub and brush your barrel groves to remove the lead buildup from unjacketed ammo. FMJ means full metal jacket, the coating over the bullet that helps protect your barrel and provides better accuracy.
BEST 9MM AMMO FOR SELF DEFENSE
Self-defense 9mm ammo has a hollow point bullet, usually jacketed in copper, and a brass casing. Hollow point ammo is meant to expand, giving you more stopping power and less pass-through.The most expensive rounds have nickel plated brass casings that eject smoothly. You can also buy 9mm ammo with fragmenting bullets, meant to reduce risk of pass-throughs and ricochets. Heavier rounds, such as 135 grain bullet, have more stopping power, but they also have more recoil. Using a 115 grain projectile helps manage recoil for more accurate shots.
BEST 9MM AMMO WITH A SUPPRESSOR
When trying to reduce noise and muzzle flash, use a heavy, subsonic round with your suppressor. A heavy bullet, pushed by less propellant, means muzzle velocity is below the speed of sound, helping suppress sound even more.
