Making 9mm ammo is a relatively simple process.
All you need is a reloading press, some dies, brass cases, bullets, powder, and primers.
The first step is to resize and deprime the brass cases.
Next, you’ll need to measure out the correct amount of powder for your load.
Finally, you’ll need to seat the bullets and crimp the casings.

One of the  way is using a 9mm Luger die set. This set includes a shell holder, decapping pin, and sizing die. The reloader will need to purchase bullets, powder, and primers to complete the process.

  1. Place the bullet into the case mouth.
  2. Use a funnel to fill the case with powder until it’s level with the top of the bullet.
  3. Seat the primer into the case by hand or with a reloading tool. Be sure not to overfill or underfill the case as this could cause problems when firing.

9mm ammo is made by loading a projectile into a casing and then crimping the case around the projectile. The projectile is typically made of lead, with a copper coating to make it harder.
The powder load is then inserted into the casing, and the primer is placed on top. The whole package is then sealed up and fired from a gun.
The casings used for 9mm ammo are typically made of brass, although aluminum casings are also sometimes used. Brass casings are stronger than aluminum casings and can withstand more pressure, so they are preferable for use in handguns.
