|“|| This basic 9x19 caliber round with a jacketed bullet has good characteristics while being simple to produce. The round is popular due to the fact that international conventions prohibit the use of expanding ammunition in combat. Ineffective against body armor.|
- Call of Pripyat in-game description
The 9x19mm FMJ is an ammunition type available in all three S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.
Much like the 9x18, it is overall extremely ineffective against armored targets, with the damage severely reduced.
In Call of Pripyat, 9x19 FMJ rounds have unusually high velocity - combined with their low air resistance, their effective range is vastly improved compared to previous games, making them vastly preferable to 9x18mm weapons, and even on par with .45ACP until the player can acquire .45 ACP Hydroshock rounds.
