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.

Tired of pointing your 9mm handgun at things and saying “BANG!” hoping they will fall over? Well, have we ever got the tip of the century for you pal – that piece of hardware is going to work a lot better once you’ve filled its magazine with ammo.
With this 9mm ammo by MAXXTech you’ll never have to say “BANG!” again! This round is loaded with its caliber’s lightest common bullet. At 115 grains it achieves a supersonic muzzle velocity out of a barrel as short as a handgun’s, which it will also spare from accelerated fouling courtesy of its gilding metal jacket. But new shooters take note: Although no one would voluntarily get shot by this round’s bullet, as an FMJ it’s not the best choice for self-defense. For target shooting and plinking it is top notch, though.
MAXXTech ammo is made in Goražde, Bosnia and Herzegovina by Pobjeda Technology. They’re a major manufacturer that adheres to C.I.P. standards (the Euro equivalent of SAAMI) and became ISO 9001 in the year 2000. As such they load consistent, reliable products, such as this brass cased and non-corrosive Boxer primed 9mm training ammo.
Blazer Brass 9mm 147 Grain FMJ – 1000 Rounds$759.85
Manufacturer Blazer Brass Condition New Bullet Weight 147 Grain Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) Use Type plinking at the range Casing Type Brass Quantity 1000 Ammo Caliber 9mm Luger (9x19) Manufacturer SKU 5203 Primer Type Boxer Magnetic No UPC Barcode 50004544650597 Cost Per Round 76.0¢ per round
This 9mm cartridge from Blazer’s Brass line of ammunition features a 147 grain projectile, the heaviest bullet you’re likely to find in store bought ammunition in its caliber and accordingly one that delivers the subsonic muzzle velocity many consider ideal for target practice. This bullet’s base is protected, so hot propellant gasses won’t evaporate the lead in its core upon ignition -- that’s an excellent feature if you train indoors and aren’t enthusiastic about breathing in aerosolized lead every time you fire your weapon.
Blazer’s aluminum cased ammo is great for a lot of reasons, but it’s unsuitability for handloading doesn’t rank among them. This round’s brass casing, which is fresh out of the factory and fitted with a Boxer primer pocket, is perfect if you would never invest in a round that you couldn’t bring back to life after firing it. The primer this cartridge comes with is made by CCI and accordingly non-corrosive, and its propellant is clean burning to save your action from getting devoured by insidious residues.
Good price, great service
Always good service and prices! And a good, quality product for plinking. Thanks

Developed in the German Empire in 1902, the 9mm quickly became one of the most popular rounds in the world. Used all through countless wars and by many different law enforcement agencies, the 9mm has been proven for over a century of extensive use.
Since 1922, Federal has been producing some of America's favorite ammo through their high quality manufacturing and competitive price points. Whether you want something premium for self defense or economical for range training, Federal has the option for you. All of their ammo is loaded in the USA.
These 9mm +P rounds feature 124 grain HST jacketed hollow point projectiles that offer controlled expansion and adequate penetration. Each bullet leaves the barrel around 1,150 feet per second and is pressed into a premium nickel-plated brass casing that is reloadable. These are great rounds for self defense applications.
Great service- Great ammo
The Wideners team are great!
As far as the ammunition, as far as I am concerned there is no better personal defense ammo in any caliber than Federal HST. More and more law enforcement agencies are adopting this format. That in itself is enough to know it performs when needed and possibly a critical point when you are scrutinized when you have to use it. All of my carry weapons are loaded with HST rounds .
When your life depends on it, defend yourself with confidence in HST.

Federal Personal Defense 9mm 147 Grain HST JHP – 20 Rounds$34.50
Manufacturer Federal Condition New Bullet Weight 147 Grain Bullet Type Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Use Type home defense Casing Type Nickel-Plated Brass Quantity 20 Ammo Caliber 9mm Luger (9x19) Manufacturer SKU P9HST2S Primer Type Boxer Magnetic No UPC Barcode 604544621075 Cost Per Round $1.73 per round
Your everyday carry needs to have reliable, knock-down power if it’s going to do you any good when life attacks. That’s why Federal offers this round from their Personal Defense line of ammunition with a 147 grain HST projectile. The HST’s ability to deliver catastrophic terminal performance won’t be hindered by common barriers -- its special nose cavity is designed to prevent itself from becoming clogged up. This bullet expands to extend six sharp petals as it tunnels through its target, and it penetrates to the ideal depth for neutralizing a human-sized target while retaining nearly 100 percent of its weight.
This round’s factory fresh casing is made of brass, and thus perfect for handloading. The casing’s nickel plating poses multiple benefits to its performance: It promotes smooth feeding in a semi-automatic weapon, resists corrosion when confronted with moisture, and makes an on the fly chamber check easier to perform in the dark.
There are a lot of great 9mm loads out there but for me this was EXACTLY what I was looking for...
