FEG MADE IN HUNGARY
Another example is the .380 ACP round (9x17mm) which is known is Europe as the 9mm Kurtz (short). Other names you find are 9mm Largo (9x22) and 9mm Makarov (9x18).
Yet another example of a round using the 9mm diameter round .38 special. The 9mm diameter is actually .355 inches. English naming typically uses inch measurements, whereas Europe and others use metric. But some liberties are taken with the exact number used in the name.
You can go on to find a lot of examples, but I'll end with this...9mm Luger, .38 Special, and .357 magnum all have the same diameter. And each are offered in a 115 gr weight bullet round. I'll let you guess which is most powerful of the three.
9 mm Parabellum is a particular 9mm cartridge. In the US it is also and mostly, known as 9 Luger or 9mm Luger. In Europe it is usually called 9 Parabellum or 9x19.
The common round in the US (and the standard NATO handgun round) is the 9x19. This is also called 9mm Luger or 9mm Parabellum, and should be what works in your FEG.
I would recommend that you stay away from the 9mm Luger "+P" ammo (usually sold as self-defense ammo because of its higher velocities), unless you know for sure that your FEG is strong enough to handle the increased pressure.
A 9mm Makarov (9x18mm) will not work and neither will a 9mm Short (9x17mm) aka .380 ACP aka 9mm Browning.
The 9x19mm Parabellum (abbreviated 9x19mm or 9x19) cartridge was designed by George Luger and introduced in 1902 by the German weapons manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) for their Luger semi-automatic pistol. For this reason, it is commonly called the 9mm Luger cartridge, differentiating it from the also-popular 9mm Makarov and 9mm Browning cartridges.
It is generally reported that you should not use ammunition with non-jacketed lead bullets in a Glock with the factory barrel. The belief is that the polygonal rifling in these barrels causes the lead in the bullet to be shaved off and clog the rifling, resulting in potential over-pressure in the barrel. This could cause the barrel to rupture while firing.
Some people argue that this is a myth, but in general it is a good idea to stay away non-jacketed lead bullets in this situation.
The Remington 9mm ammo is all jacketed ammo, so it is completely safe for use in Glocks with factory barrels.

There might be "better" ammo on the market, but all of this ammo is effective for self defense.
Any top-shelf hollow point will serve you well, as long as it feeds reliably, which most any design should in your Taurus.
