Underwood Ammo’s XTP rounds are notable for their power and accuracy. We utilize Hornady’s eXtreme Terminal Performance (XTP) bullets which are designed for deep terminal penetration, great accuracy and controlled expansion. We combine Hornady’s unparalleled XTP bullets with our own carefully formulated design which results in one lethal round.
As with all of Underwood Ammo’s rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.
Nickel plated casings with our new nickel plating process provides several key benefits, not limited to but including; improved feeding in all actions of firearms, enhanced corrosion resistance over traditional brass, improved cosmetics, and ease of cleanup during reloading. Nickel plated casings will not tarnish like brass during storage or when in contact with foreign materials such as leather, moisture, and other metals.
While taking advantage of our state of the art testing equipment, this high performance ammunition is field tested using popular, real firearms that our customers are most likely to own out in the real world with all the elements you would experience. If for some reason Underwood Ammunition fails to meet performance expectations, we stand by our product 100% and will make sure the customer is satisfied with every purchase.
This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

I fired these through a Polish P 64 Makarov they shoot and cycle great and I plan on buying more they also produce almost no flash in the dark which is a good thing. Very clean burning Accurate and plenty powerful although I can not say they "kick" any more that cheap Blaser or Bear ammo that I have used. I plan on using it as a carry ammo.
Looking for a great 9x18 defensive load.... this is it !

This is my second order of the Underwood 9x18 Makaraov 95 gr XTP+P and I will continue to order this for my 9x18 defensive load.
This product is accurate, very consistent in velocity, and reliable in my Makarovs.
Great job Underwood!
Great option for 9x18 Makarov self defense ammo.

I have been hearing about this load for some time and I was curious how it would perform out if my 1988 made Bulgarian Makarov pistol. This load fed 100% and was consistent in accuracy. I was able to hit a 3/4 and full size pepper poppers at 50 yards consistently and knocking them over!
Overall, I'm completely satisfied with this product and I would buy this again!
Now, I wish they would make a Xtreme Defender/penetrator load to round off the 9x18 line up.
Excellent full power ammo

This ammo is amazingly accurate and I have full confidence in carrying my Bulgarian Makarov with this full power load. I don't even bother with the weak, overpriced ammo that the major manufacturers market as self defense ammo. Thanks for another great product Underwood!
Great Defensive Ammo

Very accurate and hard hitting without any added recoil that I can notice. Highly recommend
You can tell your dealing with TOP NOTCH ammo before you even touch it !

The quality of this ammo was second to none. I ran 3 mags thru my Polish P83 Wanad. All rounds fed great and shot even better. Personal defense 9x19 Makarov ammo isn't that common. Most stuff you find is ball/target or surplus. I could not be happier with my desicion to go with Underwood ! I will be ordering more.
Hard to find in store yet at this price

Good price on good quality ammo that is hard to find in store. Good customer service and fast no hustle shipping. Wish the freight wouldn't take almost the price of another bid. Rather have two boxes instead. Still less than in the store if they have any.

The ammo cycled perfect. You can fill the defense in this ammo over standard 9X18.
Never look any further than Underwood for self defense ammo.

This is excellent self defense ammo using the well known XTP bullet loaded to +P velocities. Recoil in my Bulgarian Makarov with a 19lb recoil spring is very manageable and the ammo is accurate. Underwood has a real winner here! If only they could keep it in stock :-/
Best Self Defense Makarov ammo on the market.

Only one other compared and it's ridiculously expensive. Both by the numbers and value for dollar, nothing else compares. This is the best.
