- Q & A
All too many gun owners consider self-defense ammunition something they buy in 20 and 50-round boxes. After all, they reason, all that’s necessary is enough ammunition to keep my carry weapon loaded and ready for a potential assailant – and maybe, just maybe, a spare mag or two will be loaded as well. However, one of the most important factors of self-defense shooting is shot-placement, and if you’re ever attacked you’re going to be firing multiple shots. Accurate follow-up shots and rapid target re-acquisition are a life-and-death issue, and if you don’t get enough practice with defense rounds, you could find yourself on the losing end of a firefight.
This ammunition is made by the legendary Federal Cartridge Company for your .40 S&W. At 155 grain these are considered medium-weight rounds, and that means you get a bit of the best of both worlds. These rounds are light enough to move at high speeds yet heavy enough to impact targets with decent force. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and expand on impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullets to penetrate more fully than standard HPs, so they create deeper, more devastating wound cavities. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1140 feet per second and muzzle energy of 404 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense.
When you order this case of ammunition you get 1000 target rounds, and as mentioned above that means you can get much-needed training in. Aside from honing your accuracy and target re-acquisition skills there are a multitude of others to master from shooting from various positions such as kneeling and prone to shooting from concealment. One important drill to master is the Mozambique, which involves two rapid-fire shots to center mass with a follow-up head shot. It’s a technique that’s been around for a long time for a good reason: it works. And since Federal produces this ammunition in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, you can reload your spent casings and get even more range time. Federal manufactures ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Place your order today and be prepared for whatever may come.
