- Q & A
The .40 S&W is considered young by ammunition standards having just been designed in 1990. It was technically the result of the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, when the FBI decided they needed more powerful rounds for their agents. During that event a pair of serial bank robbers led a team of FBI agents on a car chase that ended in the streets of Miami. When the cars stopped a firefight ensued, and although both robbers were shot early on they continued to fight for some time. Before succumbing to their wounds they shot all but one agent, killing two.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by Estate. They weigh in at 165 grain making them medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means they are light enough to fly down-range at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts but heavy enough to strike targets with a significant impact. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds tend to over-penetrate, making it even more important to have a reliable backstop in place. This ammunition is great for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition from Estate you get 1000 target rounds: 20 boxes of 50 rounds each. With 1000 target rounds you can get extensive trigger time with your favorite pistol, working on the basics or moving on to advanced drills. Better yet, these rounds are produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second and muzzle energy of 404 foot-pounds. Estate’s headquarters and factory are located in London, and they are also a subsidiary of Federal in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and become a better shot with your .40 S&W.
