gi ball is 124 grain- have packed an m9 all over the world and was on a Nat. Guard shooting team- I have no idea why the 115gr keeps popping up as the designated weight in many sources

Thanks for all the help with the 9mm M882 bullet weight issue.

Is their a source for used commercial packaging for 9mm ammo. WRA, R-P, Fed, etc.? I would imagine that some law enforcement training centers must go through a lot of factory ammo, and I wonder how I can get some of the discarded boxes, etc.? Or do they use mostly remanufactured ammo?

Thanks again, Andy

I have a box or two of WCC M882 from mid-90s, and pulled one bullet
a few years back--124 gr.

Shot a lot of M882 in the day for Leg Matches.
124 Gr., FMJ , Nato Spec , Nato circle/cross headstamp, mostly Winchester produced but there was some Federal too

Good Fast Ammo, High Pressure.
Broke some Beretta Locking Blocks over time.

There is no "exact specific weight" needed for NATO Spec 9x19mm ammo. Bullet weights from 105 to 124gr are acceptable. Danish 9mm NATO ball is right around 107grs.

NATOs goal is to have INTERCHANGEABILTY as to ammo function, not exact duplication between nations.

Some of it comes from the DA pam on ammunition. There are quite a few errors in the small arms section, and it lists M882 as 112gr IIRC. "Brought
to you by the guys that changed the M16 powder spec",

Right, and as the thread title says, we're looking at the M882 slug weight, not NATO's stanag on 9x19.

Sorry for my WILD OFF TOPIC post...perhaps I should have quoted post # 8?

Looks like the new USA Govt. 9mm round will be Winchesters XM1152. A flat nosed FMJ.

It weighs 115grs.

What DPS said. To include the broken locking blocks. Had one fail in a leg match once. Didn't completely lock up the pistol, but shot about 10" high. Nice 4-5" group.....in the 2 area of the Fig 11 Crazy Ivan. I was not happy.....

That's why I'm glad they went to the M17. Wish it would have happened before i legged out. I shoot the P320 well. Really like the Army's decision.

Yes, M882 are 124 gr as of this fall and as long as I can remember previous to that.
