9mm ammo has been a runaway favorite among concealed carriers and police agencies. In fact, 9x19 is one of the older handgun cartridges on the market with a history dating all the way back to the early 1900's. The Luger round was used extensively by the Germans in the P08 and P38 handguns. In the U.S., the cartridge can be considered something of a sleeper hit in its early years, only achieving major popularity in the 1980's with the rise of CCW and semiautomatic pistols.
The 9mm Luger ammo you'll find for sale here at Widener's typically features 115, 124, or 147 grain bullets. Heavier bullets offer strong penetration but lower muzzle velocities, with the 147 grain version falling into the subsonic range. 115 or 124 grain jacketed hollow points from Speer, Federal, Winchester, and many other manufacturers produce a muzzle velocity of around 1,100 feet per second and produce relatively mild recoil while still delivering excellent terminal performance. If you like to shoot centerfire ammo in high volumes, the low cost and low recoil of the 9mm makes it your best bet! Generally, you can expect rounds loaded with full metal jacket bullets to be cheaper than the hollow point defensive counterparts with your best buy coming in bulk.
There have been many handguns chambered for the 9mm Luger, but the most popular for concealed carry today are typically compact pistols like the SIG P938, Glock 43, S&W M&P Shield, Springfield XDs, Ruger LC9, and Kahr CW9. Be sure to take a look at our in-stock 9mm ammo below.

We know you’re one tough cookie. You can shovel out your driveway in five minutes using only a tablespoon, and snakes have to go to the hospital after biting you. But however tough you are, you don’t want splash-back bombarding your face with shrapnel while you’re training indoors or on steel targets. That’s why you want Speer’s Lawman Reduced Hazard Training 9mm ammo.
This 9mm round’s bullet is made out of metal copper powder instead of traditional solid lead and copper. When it hits something hard like a wall, rock, or steel gong it simply crumbles away into dust, removing the risk of splash-back and resultant injury virtually altogether. To sweeten the deal this round’s lead-free bullet and lead-free primer work hand in hand to promote a cleaner shooting environment – especially indoors where you could easily wind up breathing in harmful lead vapors!
This round’s bullet doesn’t weigh much at 100 grains, so its muzzle velocity is pretty high at 1,270 fps (out of a 4” test barrel). That’s great when you want a flat trajectory – at 100 yards the bullet should still boast a four digit velocity and only have dropped by about 7.5”.
This is ammo for professionals, but even an amateur can appreciate Speer’s high quality brass case, consistently loaded propellant, and expert loading techniques.
