In 2019, Blackwater Worldwide re-entered the firearms and ammunition market in the USA and began manufacturing ammunition, tactical blades, and suppressors. Today they are proud to announce the Blackwater Contractor Grade 124 grain 9mm hollow point ammunition.
Introducing Blackwater Contractor Grade 124 grain 9mm
Manufactured in the Blackwater Ammunition facility based in Concord NC, Contractor Grade 9mm is designed to deliver maximum reliability and terminal performance in all weapon platforms. Contractor Grade is a +P 124 grain 9mm, that features a lightweight split case with a nickel alloy top and aluminum base. This type of design lends itself to a much lighter casing when compared to steel or brass but also adds the benefit of being reloadable.
With the case design being reloadable, 30% lighter than a traditional brass casing, and performing perfectly with the higher +P pressures this makes not only for a great defensive round but a versatile one. The powder is clean and temperature stable to support reliable function with high round count maintenance cycles of both suppressed and unsuppressed fire.
The 124 grain 9mm projectiles are precision CNC machined, lead-free, solid copper expanding bullets that meet the FBI penetration requirements while maintaining nearly 100% of its original weight.
