About 9mm Bullets
The 9mm bullet, often referred to as the 9mm Luger or 9mm Parabellum, traces its roots back to 1902. Designed by the esteemed Austrian firearms developer, Georg Luger, this new round quickly took the world by storm. Its inception brought about a revolution in ammunition, solidifying it as a staple in the armory of many, from law enforcement to self-defense enthusiasts and target shooters.
The genius behind the 9mm lies in its carefully crafted bullet design. The round nose and moderate bullet diameter contribute to its impressive balance of size, power, and cost. Despite the advent of larger calibers, the 9mm ammunition retains a prominent position due to its exceptional combination of performance and affordability.
These traits, alongside its substantial muzzle velocity and compatibility with a range of firearms from semi-automatic pistols to submachine guns, have contributed the growth of 9mm ammo's popularity globally.
Why Choose 9mm Bullets?
Choosing 9mm bullets for your firearm is not just about their storied history or widespread adoption—it’s about understanding their benefits and versatility. The 9mm Luger is renowned for what it does exceptionally well: offering a balance of power and manageability.
For those focused on self-defense, the 9mm bullet provides a potent yet controllable option. From hollow point designs that offer superior terminal performance to flat point rounds that are perfect for range training, 9mm ammunition fits the bill. These features make the 9mm round a top choice for personal protection, with many police officers, law enforcement agencies, and civilians trusting it for their daily carry.
But it's not all about self-defense. The 9mm is also at home in the world of competitive shooting and plinking. The moderate recoil and substantial muzzle velocity of this caliber bullet lend themselves well to accuracy, making it an ideal choice for target practice and competitive sports.
9mm ammunition can be used in a variety of firearms, from semi-automatic pistols like the renowned S&W Shield to high-capacity submachine guns. Regardless of your specific application, there's likely a 9mm round tailored to your needs.

Our Bullet Making Process
The process of crafting Berry's Bullets' renowned copper-plated bullets is a testament to our precision and commitment to quality. It all begins with a swaged lead core, carefully molded under high pressure. This meticulous procedure ensures an even density across the core, contributing significantly to the bullet's in-flight stability.
Next comes the intricate process of electroplating. Here, the lead core is immersed in a copper sulfate solution. We apply an electric current and a layer of copper is stuck onto the lead core, providing a seamless copper covering with zero lead exposure. This copper plating process provides a few benefits including mitigating barrel fouling and enhancing overall bullet performance.
Once the electroplating process ends, each bullet is then re-struck. In this phase, each bullet passes through a die to meet exact specifications, such as diameter and overall length. Re-striking fortifies the bond between copper and lead core, smoothing out any irregularities that might have formed during electroplating.
Finally, we finish with a comprehensive quality check. Each bullet is closely inspected to ensure we deliver superior accuracy, dependability, and performance across every bullet. Our process embodies the commitment we put into each bullet, making sure our customers receive nothing but the best.
Why Plated Bullets?
Plated bullets offer a range of benefits for shooters of all kinds, from beginners to seasoned professionals.
Firstly, plated bullets can significantly reduce barrel fouling. The copper plating acts as a barrier between the lead core and the barrel, which helps to minimize lead deposits. This results in a cleaner firearm, reducing the time and effort spent on maintenance.
Secondly, they offer excellent performance at a competitive price. Plated bullets are less expensive to produce than jacketed bullets, making them a cost-effective option for shooters who go through large volumes of ammo, such as those involved in regular range training or competitive shooting.
Moreover, the copper plating enhances bullet performance. The layer of copper aids in maintaining bullet shape during flight, promoting greater accuracy compared to a cast bullet.
Finally, the use of plated bullets contributes to a safer shooting environment. By reducing lead exposure, plated bullets decrease potential health risks associated with handling and firing traditional lead bullets.
