I recieved several boxes of 9mm ammo from a friend some time back, and have questions about it. I’ve fired quite a bit of it, but still have a few boxes left. The head stamp is 9 MM 44. The boxes are plain brown cardboard/paper, holding 64 rounds each. No labels or marking at all. I read one thread here discussing the background of the ammo (and it’s 7.92 counterpart), but it was a few years old.
A friend gave me the ammo because he doesn’t have a 9mm, and I’d just bought mine. My question mainly deals with the ballistics of the round. From my 4.75" barrel (EAA Witness Elite Match) it seems quite hot. I didn’t think a large all steel 9mm would recoil as much as it did. I guess I expected it to be a LOT tamer than my .40 S&W Sig 229, but it wasn’t.
Okay, does anyone know what the MV, etc. are for these? I’m guessing it’s a 124gr bullet, since it’d be NATO spec…or would it?
