9x19 Bullets for Reloading

This page is full of products that contain only the bullet portion of ammunition. It's meant for shooters who reload their own ammo. If you wanted rounds ready to fire, please visit our 9mm ammo page here.

The 9mm is where a lot of handloaders start out, if only because the 9mm is in such high demand as America’s favorite pistol cartridge.

As with factory loads, 9mm bullets for reloading usually weigh 115, 124, or 147 grains. The heaviest bullets are typically loaded to subsonic muzzle velocities, while the lightest ones can perform in excess of 1,200 fps. (Extremely lightweight 88 grain bullets can easily be loaded to crack 1,500 fps.) FMJs are of course the target shooter’s go-to, but an abundance of .355 diameter JHP bullets are also available to load self-defense cartridges.

9mm Luger bullets move at relatively high velocities, and slow burning powder achieves that by exerting continually rising pressure against the bullet in the barrel. It is also possible to use fast burning powder to make a light load. Just so long as you stay under SAAMI’s max pressure of 35,000 psi, you can experiment a little with powders to get a round you really like.

Take care that chamber designs can vary significantly across different 9mm handguns. It may take some trial and error to determine the exact overall length your particular handgun prefers.
