Press Release for Buffalo Bore 9X18 Makarov +P 95gr. JHP Item # 34A
Our introduction of +P 9X18 Makarov
ammunition is the result of numerous customer requests. With no high quality +P ammunition available for the millions of Makarov pistols that are now in America, the American 9X18 pistol owner has no viable/effective self defense ammo for use in these high quality pistols, until now.I am not a fan of using expanding bullets for self defense in smaller less powerful cartridges like the 9X18 or the 380 auto, as the expansion of these light weight smaller bullets often limits the penetration required to incapacitate the threat, but there are circumstances where the use of expanding ammo is an advantage. For more information on this subject, please read our "technical article" on "The Use of Expanding Bullets in Small Defensive Cartridges" posted under the "Technical Articles" category on our home page.This new 95gr. JHP+P, 9X18 Mak loading,, Item # 34A
, is roughly 200 fps faster than normal ball 95gr. Makarov ammo. This new +P load also features flash suppressed powder as roughly 95% of all civilian shootings in America occur in low light, when the criminal element is active. This ammunition will not blind the shooter in low light situations, which is an important tactical advantage.This ammo was reliable and quite accurate in our test guns. We noted no accelerated wear from the use of +P loads in our test pistols, although common sense suggests that any +P ammo will wear any pistol at a faster rate than weaker ammo. Please note the below real world velocities from our stock over-the-counter test guns
1. 1150 fps—East German Makarov, 4 inch barrel
2. 1192 fps—CZ 82, 4 inch barrel
