Who knows what kind of 9mm ammunition the Army currently uses? My poor google-fu has failed to reveal the answer so far.

124gr ball, supposed to be a little hotter.

According to TM 43-0001-27, M882 NATO ball has a 112.5gr projectile and is loaded with 6gr of HPC 26 powder.

I've always heard it was a 124 gr FMJ

eta: I've got a few rounds of '882, I can pull one later and weigh the bullet if needed.

I'd be interested to see what you find out, since I also thought that it was supposed to be 124gr.

The TM could also be a misprint, since 112.5 could very easily have been 125.

I just looked at a box of 50 at Ft. Huachuca, it is 124grain NATO ball. Made by Winchester.

124g. It's all I ever saw in theater. Same as WWB as mentioned above.
