The 9mm has quite a legion of fans, including the US Army, the Illinois State Police, and the Border Patrol. All of them have one thing in common: they understand the necessity of practice. This ammunition is meant for target practice, tactical training, and plinking; they’re FMC (full metal case) rounds, which are almost identical to FMJ (full metal jacket). At 124 grain, they’re medium weight for the caliber, giving you a little extra oomph. They have a muzzle velocity of 1,109 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 339 foot-pounds. These rounds also have a solid reputation for feeding and ejecting dependably as well as being accurate. That means less frustration for you and more time honing your skills at the range.

Magtech manufactures all its ammunition in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the same plant it’s had since its founding more than 80 years ago. They take the creation of their ammunition seriously, test-firing a mind-blowing 2.5 million rounds a year. Yes, that’s approximately one round every 12.6 seconds. Now that’s dedication. You get 1,000 rounds of ammunition in this box, so you can put your 9mm handgun through its paces time and again. And maybe, if you really put your mind to it, you can try to fire rounds at Magtech’s own impressive rate.
