I saw an interesting can of 9mm ammo at a gun show yesterday. Sorry, no camera with me but here are the particulars.
The can was a standard .50 cal olive drab GI type stencilled with the same information as the boxes contained inside. Each 50 round buff colored box was marked:
Cal 9mm L (subsonic)
The cartridges were headstamped 9mm L WCC 87
The interesting thing to me was the bullets were all jacketed hollow points, obviously a bit unusual for Military packaged ammo. Was this for Special OPs? Or just military style packaging for a Federal Law Enforcement contract? I also didn’t recognize the significance of the “L” in the designation. Is that related to the subsonic loading or something else?
It was a full can of 1000 rounds but a bit pricey for shooting ammo and I don’t have an MP-5-SD to feed anyway. But I’d like to know more about the ammo. Thanks.
