A long time ago in a nation far, far away the design for the 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge took root. How long? Well, its development goes all the way back to 1898 when Georg Luger began working on the Luger P08, also known as the Parabellum pistol. If you have ever wondered why the 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge is commonly known as the 9mm Luger, it is because Georg Luger also developed the cartridge for use in his pistol. And if you have ever wondered where the name Parabellum comes from, it is derived from the Latin phrase “Si vis pacem, para bellum” – if you seek peace, prepare for war. Want another fun fact? That was the motto used by Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken, the original manufacturer of both the pistol and the cartridge, which was introduced in 1902. It all comes full circle.
Now, over 100 years later, the 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge, or 9mm Luger, is the most popular handgun cartridge in the world.
