Is the S&B mentioned above the red/green/white box ? S&B also make the Winchester White box. Is this the same ?I've worked on a few killings using the 9x18. I carry the hottest 95-gr FMJ I can find (for me, S&B and AE perform equally well, averaging between 1050 fps and 1100 fps from my Sov military Mak depending on the temp). In the cases I've worked, the ball round has penetrated adequately but not overpenetrated.
I've run S&B and WWB thru the same gun across the same chrono on the same day, and got slightly lower velocities for the S&B (951fps) than for the WWB (982 fps.) The batch of S&B that I had shot thru the same gun but on an earlier day came in at 966 fps.Is the S&B mentioned above the red/green/white box ? S&B also make the Winchester White box.

When I water tested Pow'Rball, it blew up the 1st jugs very decisively. Penetrated into 2 more, but with greatly reduced effect , particularly in the 3rd....If it's already been discussed, sorry for bringing it up again, but what about Cor-Bon Pow'R Ball?
Same here It shoots well and cycles great!I use Hornady XTP. I buy it locally, but you can get it at many online retailers.
There are folks who swear by using FMJ ammo for the 9x18 round, for the understandable reason that guaranteed penetration to organ depth is more important to them than expansion.
I personally believe that 2-3 rounds of either of these will drop an assailant, but don't expect a first-round drop in any case. Practice, and practice more. Aim center of mass, and unload.
