9x18 Ammo (Makarov)

The 9mm Makarov, or "mak" as it is often called on the Internet, is a pistol cartridge best described as the Russian counterpart to the 9mm Luger in military usage. It is a much younger cartridge than its Western cousin, having been introduced in the late 1940s to replace the 7.62 Tokarev.

9x18mm Makarov ammunition typically sits between the .380 ACP and the 9mm in power, firing a light 95 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity in the 1,000-1,100 feet per second range. Self-defense loads firing jacketed hollow points are produced by only a few manufacturers but deliver respectable performance in the Makarov PM, the handgun typically used with them.

Due to its Soviet origins, the 9mm Makarov is often found in cost-effective steel-cased varieties such as those from Wolf and Barnaul's Bear series. Reloaders may prefer slightly more expensive but brass-cased alternatives from Prvi Partizan, Sellier & Bellot, or Winchester.
