    9mm NATO 124gr truncated cone/flat point made years ago?

    Good Day,

    I have a vague memory our military was equipped with 124gr NATO truncated cone/flat point ammo a number of years ago. Does anyone remember that ammo being used? If it existed, is it made now somewhere?

    Cheers

    What time frame? Most all of the stuff I have seen and used was standard ball.

    There was some European manufactured ammo that was loaded to specs hot enough to be reliable in a subgun.

    Somewhere deep in my now-dysfunctional memory is the notion that the original load for the 9mm Parabellum ("Luger") pistol featured a truncated-cone, FMJ bullet.

    I know that some major manufacturer still makes this load, but I just can't remember which one, or even if it's a US company.

    Hornady had a version of this I think.

    You got the truncated cone part down, but "NATO" is a higher velocity ammunition, similar to a +P loading.

    Well, darn. Maybe I need to self enforce a rule that I have to read all posts twice before I reply. I gave it my best, though.
