Learn about common rounds of ammunition types for pistols in this free video featuring a Marine Corps double expert marksman.
Hello! My name is John here with Expert Village. This next segment is going to on common rounds of hand gunning. This first round is a 17, 0.017 inches. A very common round; it’s becoming more popular. Very fast, very inexpensive, easy to shoot. Not a lot of recoil, fun for target shooting. The next round is a 22, your grandfather’s round. Again, very inexpensive about 2 dollars for 100. Very easy to shoot and have been around for quite a long time. The next round is the 22 magnum. This is what’s used in the Olympics in the biathlon. Fairly longer range than the 22, still fun to shoot, fairly inexpensive. The next round is the 9 millimeter used by most police today. The availability is very inexpensive. You can find most of these at any range and they’re going to have a handgun to go with that round. The next one is a 40, 0.40 inches. That’s what we’re going to be shooting today, through the Heckler & Koch 40 USP, which we have right here. My name is John, Expert Village.
