    Is anybody making any FMJ Round nose type like the 230gr .45 ball ammo? or 124 FMJ NATO Ball? Why not?

    Overall length, to fit the round in a 9mm sized frame your stuck with that projectile shape and profile, ive seen some round nose lead projectiles but they dont look much like the 9mm or .45's there very short and stubby once again thats due to the overall length.
    Any reason you want them?

    The .40 was designed in the age of jacketed hollowpoints so its overall length and such was designed mainly for these type of bullets with flat noses.
