9x18 Ammunition

Following is a list of ammunitions and sources for the 9x18 Makarov caliber. Ballistics information is from either the manufacturer or a retail source and reflects factory ballistics. Even though there are no Makarovs with 4-inch barrels, most of these ammos were probably tested in a 4-inch barrel, so actual ballistics should be slightly less than listed here. Where no muzzle energy information was given, I calculated it using the formula: V2*W/450240, where V is velocity in feet per second and W is bullet weight in grains. This formula was "borrowed" from another website. Some velocities were given in meters/second and these were first converted to fps with an online conversion website (no thinking involved).

No guarantees here: this information may be wrong for all I know, but probably isn't. If there are any errors here, by all means inform me. If you know of any ammunition I've missed I would like to know about it also. I personally want to get some of the Fiocchi JHPs and am on an email notification with Cheaper Than Dirt so I'll know as soon as they're available.
