If you carry your .40 S&W for personal protection, you probably spend a fair amount of time working on shot placement and accuracy. And although those are very important for self-defense, it’s important to incorporate a few other drills into your training time. One drill you should be doing is a Pressure Drill, which is designed to help mimic the raised heart rate and increased adrenaline of a self-defense situation. Although it’s impossible to precisely replicate that kind of adrenaline rush, there are ways to get as close as possible: exercise. By doing a series of push-ups, sit-ups, or short sprints prior to shooting drills you not only raise your heart rate but increase respirations and cause your muscles to shake, all of which mimics an adrenaline rush. Learning to maintain accuracy despite shaky arms and a racing heart takes practice, and it’s a skill well worth mastering.
Of course, to do Pressure Drills you need a lot of ammunition. These heavyweight 180 grain rounds will produce more recoil than lighter rounds, making your training a bit more realistic and also tearing substantial holes in your stationary targets. These are FMJ rounds specifically meant for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round flies from the barrel of your handgun with a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second and impacts targets with muzzle energy of 441 foot-pounds. And because Aguila produces this ammunition in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so you can burn through this entire box, collect your spent brass, reload it, and get back to doing Pressure Drills.
There are 1000 target rounds in this case of ammunition, so you can focus on your self-defense training without worrying about running out of ammo. It’s made by Aguila, which is a subsidiary of TECNOS, a Mexican company founded in 1961. TECNOS has strict expectations for quality and has a reputation for producing reliable ammunition, and through them Aguila has gained that same dependable reputation. The TECNOS plant was originally set up by Remington, and Remington also trained the original employees at the plant. This ammunition cycles well and performs nicely for target use, so if you want to do some high-volume shooting without emptying your wallet, give Aguila a shot. Your marksmanship skills will thank you.
