Mm LUGER

Adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and the German Army in 1908, the 9mm Luger is the world's most widely used military handgun cartridge. In 1985 the United States Armed Forces adopted a Beretta semi-automatic pistol in 9mm to replace the aging Model 1911A1, .45 ACP.

It is used by numerous police and military organizations. Plus many IPSC shooters are currently using it in competition. (Hunting use should be restricted to small game and the use of expanding bullets.)

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the 9mm Luger is 33,000 C.U.P. and 35,000 P.S.I.
