The 9mm caliber is quite possibly the most popular caliber of pistol rounds, especially in the United States, because of how cheap and available the ammo is. Known by many names, including 9 mil, 9x19mm, 9mm luger, 9mm NATO, and 9mm Parabellum (Latin for “Prepare for war if you seek peace,”) the 9mm round was first manufactured by the German weapons Manufacturer Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken , or DWM for short, in 1902 and created by George Luger (hence the name 9mm Luger). It began to be used by the German Navy in 1904 and later by their army in 1906.
It was designed to increase the bullet’s ability to penetrate through an enemy soldier’s gear, with an emphasis on completely disabling the enemy combatant, either through wounding or killing them. Surprisingly, when pitching his round to manufacturers, Luger put on emphasis on wounding and not killing. After the first World War, countries all over the world began using this caliber. Now, law enforcement and military agencies, as well civilian shooters, all over the world call this caliber their favorite.
In the modern gun era, the 9mm caliber size has attributed to the rise in the popularity of semi-automatic pistols, hence making the round popular to reload, as well. Since its creation, the 9mm has seen tremendous advancements in bullet technology, with a vast array of bullet options available, from ball rounds to extremely effective hollow-points.
