9X18 Makarov +P
(115gr. hard cast flat nose @ 1,000 fps-ME 255 ft. Ibs.)
20 Round Box

(Item 34B)

Our introduction of a "heavy bullet for cartridge" 9X18 Makarov +P loading is the sole result of numerous customer requests.  With millions of these pistols now on American soil and no +P heavy loadings available, this cartridge and the many pistol owners are suffering from the lack of serious fight stopping ammunition.  This load is 20grs. heavier and 100 fps faster than standard 9X18 ammo.

This loading features a flash suppressed powder, so if you need to shoot in low light, you won't be blinded by your own gunfire and this is a useful tactical advantage since around 95% of all civilian shootings in the US happen in low light while the criminal element is out and about.  Our use of a hard cast bullet, with a flat nose, can best be understood if you'll read our technical article on "The Use of Expanding Bullets in Small Defensive Cartridges," posted under the "Technical Articles" category on our Home Page.

Further, please note that the use of hard cast bullets (not lead but, Hard Cast) does NOT cause lead fouling in the polygonal rifling's used in all 9X18 Makarov pistols.  For more information, please see our Technical Articles entitled "Hard Cast Bullets in Polygonal Barrels" and "Dangers of Pure Lead Cowboy Bullets". We found no appreciable leading in any of our Makarov test guns. It should also be noted that all of our test guns functioned and fed flawlessly with this load. We also experienced very well to excellent accuracy in all test guns.

Please note the real world velocities listed below from real world 9X18 Makarov pistols. At Buffalo Bore we always use real, ‘over-the-counter’ firearms for our published velocities, as we feel the use of laboratory test barrels that give false, high velocities does the customer a disservice as each customer needs to know what their carry ammo will really do on-the-street in a real-world situation.

Today I finally made it to the range to try out buffalo bores 115 g and the 94 g jhp 9x18 ammo. Since I am a carpenter I use 2x12's stacked to test penetration. The hard cast 115 grain really shocked me when it shot through 3 at 10 yds . Clean throught 4.5" of framing lumber. The 94g did great also 3" of wood with moderate expansion. Both better than my usual silver bear fmj and hp's. Quite accurate also out of my pa-63. Keep up the good work.

This is my new carry ammo in my PA-63. It feeds flawlessly every time which is not the case with brown bear and silver bear I have used in the past. I was a little skeptical at first of the 115gr load but after shooting through 2 boxes at the range I will be carrying buffalo bore in my CCW PA-63 exclusively from now on! Great product at a reasonable price. Keep up the great work! Side note : the 38 SP and 30-30 rounds are fantastic as well.

When this ammo first came out I had to buy 2 boxes because I knew 1 would not be enough (2 isn't either really). Worked flawlessly in my Mak, CZ 82, PA-63. I now have no doubt about the lethality of the 9mm MAK! The hard cast flat nose really bangs reactive steel discs, WAY COOL!
Blew a hole right through a wet phone book at 10 yards! Great Job Buffalo Bore!

You guys said it would do 1000fps so I had to take it out to range and chronograph the results. Out of my E.German Mak. I avg'd the following:
Low 981
High 1026
Avg'd 1010
ES 45
SD 13
What a sensational round, keep it up guys I know what my carry ammunition is the 115gr

Good stuff. Shoots accurately and feeds reliably from my P64.

Works great in my CZ 82. This is my main CCW gun and I now carry this ammo exclusively. Feeds reliably and is as accurate as I am. I prefer to carry ball ammo as reliability and shot placement are more important than a little expansion you get from HP ammo.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
