Armor Piercing handgun cartridges
Steel core armor piercing rounds in the caliber 9x19mm are not new and where already manufactured during the second world war in Germany. Although the 08 m.E. cartridge was not specially developed to pierce through body armor but rather as result of a shortness on lead to manufacture the lead core bullets, the 08 m.E. cartridge has good identities to penetrate standard soft body armor. There are still large numbers of 08 m.E. surplus ammunition among collectors. Now these days that Jihadis dig up old mines for the Nazi’s and use the components to create crude bombs and IEDs, the law enforcement community is some kind of worry that Jihadis will also collect the old 08 m.E. cartridge to attack police officers. There exists already many variants on the steel core 9x19mm AP ammunitions. Fact is that no any modern army has the old soft lead core ammunition for battle purpose. Every ammunition manufacture has some kind of 9x19mm AP ammunition in production.
The Swedish variant is the 9mm Parabellum m/39B cartridge which haze a high chamber pressure is considered as the standard of the European full caliber 9x19mm AP rounds and is capable to penetrate 50 layers of Kevlar body armor. To have an idea, a standard NIJ-3A Kevlar body armor has around the 32 layers of Kevlar. So, most soft body armor can be defeated by the 39B armor piercing cartridge.  
Today, there exists also a lot of Brass Armor Piercing rounds on the market which are designed to penetrate soft body armor. Basically we can say that the full caliber 9x19mm cartridges all perform at the same level of penetration. With the exception that steel core ammunition has better performances at harder targets like the steel magazines of the AK 47 in front of the soft bullet proof vest.
There exist also full caliber steel core ammunition in different other calibers like the 9x18 mm Makarov and even in the .45 ACP, but these have no bigger drill performance than the 39B cartridge. .
As result of the NATO CRISAT demands witch assumed that future body armor against handgun ammunition should be an equivalent of 1.6 mm Titanium and 20 layers of Kevlar, a lot of sub caliber penetrators and small caliber ammunition for handguns appeared on the market. The most know small caliber ammunition is the caliber 5.7x28mm which is used in the P90 and Fiveseven pistol and  can penetrate more than 80 layers Kevlar but penetrates CRISAT with no deep penetration as rest energy. The 5.7 SS190 bullet dispose about a tumbling effect which limits the drill performance and over penetration. We consider the 5.7x28mm caliber as an Armor Piercing handgun caliber belonging to the category of our level 1 AP Flexible Armor.
Although the stopping power of the SS190 bullet fired out a Fiveseven pistol receives a lot of critic, a lot of armies using already the 5.7x28mm caliber, but still some armies preserve the 9x19mm caliber because of his more reliable stopping power. The 9x19 mm 39B round is still more effective against the bad armed Jihadist wearing no or light body armor.
To fight against a poor armed goat keeper out the Middle-East the 9x19mm 39B round is the best solution, however, when the little green men appear a minimum drill performance will be needed fare beyond the drill performances of the on the 9x19mm 39B round.
Russia haze already sub caliber 9mm ammunition with extensive drill performance, fare beyond the 9x19mm 39B round and which is more adequate against modern military equipment.
Russia has replaced the 9x19 mm Makarov by the new hot 9x19mm round. Some of them using the 7N31 round which is an AP round in the 9x19mm caliber.
Although the 9x19mm caliber is selected as the standard caliber for the Russian army, lot of special forces using the heavier 9x21mm caliber.
Cal. 9x21mm is Is used by the special forces and is considered as very efficient against standard modern military equipment. to stop this 9x21mm round you need a AP Flex  Armor level 2
There exist already many pistols and sub machineguns which can use armor piercing ammunition, fact is if the opponent uses soft body armor, there are already much ammunition solutions which are already been used. Wearing a thick soft Kevlar packet as protection is still easy to defeat by AP bullets which are actually in use.
In the most cases hard body armor plates are used to stop Armor Piercing ammunition, but for concealed carry and driving a car, hard body armor is rather uncomfortable. In this cases a flexible body armor is a better solution.
