"SUB-X" typically refers to a specific type of bullet designed by Hornady Manufacturing Company, a well-known ammunition manufacturer. The term "SUB-X" stands for "Subsonic Expanding," indicating its intended use and characteristics. Here's more information about Hornady's SUB-X bullet:

Subsonic Ammunition: SUB-X bullets are specifically designed for use in subsonic ammunition. Subsonic ammunition is designed to have a lower velocity, specifically below the speed of sound (approximately 1,125 feet per second at sea level). Subsonic rounds are often used in suppressed firearms to reduce the noise produced by the bullet as it travels through the air.

Expanding Design: The SUB-X bullet is an expanding bullet, meaning that its tip is designed to deform and expand upon impact with the target. This controlled expansion creates a larger wound channel, increasing the stopping power of the bullet.

Ideal for Suppressed Firearms: SUB-X bullets are particularly well-suited for use in suppressed firearms. When used with a suppressor, the combination of subsonic velocity and controlled expansion reduces both the noise and the recoil produced during firing.

Intended Applications: SUB-X bullets are commonly used for self-defense and tactical purposes, especially in situations where reduced noise and increased stopping power are desired.

Calibers and Offerings: Hornady offers SUB-X bullets in various calibers, such as 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, and others, to accommodate different firearms and shooting preferences.

It's worth noting that while SUB-X bullets are optimized for subsonic velocities and are often used with suppressors, they can still be used in standard, non-suppressed firearms. However, their performance may be optimized when fired at subsonic velocities.

As with any ammunition, it's essential to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for proper use and ensure that the ammunition you choose is compatible with your firearm. Always practice safe firearm handling and follow all local laws and regulations regarding the use of ammunition and firearms.
