Handgun ammunition is used in weapons that are also referred to as small arms, pistols, revolvers or handguns. Handgun ammunition is usually designed to project force against a relatively close selected target. The nature of handgun ammunition also includes delivery or combat supporting munitions such as hollow point, full metal jacket, expanding jacket, shot shell, non-lethal or pyrotechnic and incendiary compounds. Since the design of the cartridge, the meaning has been transferred to the assembly of a projectile and its propellant in a single package.
