Background[edit | edit source]

This section is transcluded from 9mm. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Before the Great War, 9mm was the preferred type of ammunition for small weapons in the Southwest Commonwealth, while the military and the eastern and western seaboards tended to favor 10mm ammunition.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The 9mm is a medium caliber auto-pistol round, suitable for use in handguns and submachine guns.

Variants[edit | edit source]

9mm, hollow point[edit | edit source]

Hollow point bullets mushroom and break up on impact, causing massive trauma on fleshy, unarmored targets. However, this also means they break up when they hit things like armor plate, drastically reducing the weapon's penetrating power.

9mm round, +P[edit | edit source]

These "overpressure" rounds are designed to fire at a higher internal pressure than standard ammunition. This ensures higher projectile velocity and stopping power, and affords a slight armor piercing ability but at the cost of requiring more maintenance than usual. +P ammunition can be bought at most vendors in small quantities, but can be purchased in mass quantities from Bardon at Hoover Dam.

9mm round, JHP hand load[edit | edit source]

A new ammunition added with the add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal, JHP, or jacketed hollow point, uses a metal-clad bullet which retains most of the damage bonus of ordinary hollow point rounds, but with a less severe armor penalty.

Specifically, +P rounds are not included in a vendor list which contains all other non-standard types of bullet ammunition.[verified]
