Federal 9BP at Cheaper Than Dirt
Standard pressure (NON +P or +P+) 9MM 115 grain hollowpoint
There are rumors that some police departments still issue this old load which is somewhat surprising, it goes all the way back to the beginnings of law enforcement transitioning from revolvers to semi-auto pistols. The 9BP earned a reputation as a decent stopper that would feed in finicky pistols. Every time I think that this particular load is forever gone, I find a batch for sale by one of the major suppliers. Since selling all of my finicky 9MM pistols, I haven’t had a real need for this load so I usually take a pass when I see it available; I am well stocked with its successor, the +P+ 9BPLE. Recently I had a hankering to return a small batch of it to the ammo raft so I scored 500 rounds from Cheaper Than Dirt a couple of days ago. As of this moment, 9BP is still listed in stock but the supply probably won’t last too much longer. Grab yourself some.
