The .40 S&W is considered the sweet spot of the handgun ammunition world by many gun owners. It hasn’t been around long by ammunition standards, having just hit the market in 1990, but it’s amassed quite a following. The round owes its creation to the FBI, which requested a new round be created following the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, during which two agents were killed and several others were wounded. The .40 S&W produces almost identical drift and drop to the 9mm but has power more similar to that of the 10mm, which is its parent cartridge. If you use your .40 S&W for personal protection, make sure your gun is loaded with good quality defense rounds.
These particular rounds are manufactured by Federal for your .40 S&W. Each round weighs in at 155 grain, making them moderately weighted. These rounds are light enough to travel at higher speeds but still heavy enough to strike targets with a solid impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Because they’re jacketed expansion is controlled more than in standard HPs, allowing for greater penetration and a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is meant for self-defense.
When you order this case of ammunition from Federal you get 20 boxes containing 50 rounds each for a total of 1000 defense rounds. If that seems like a large number of defense rounds and you’re thinking you’ll be set for life, think again. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, and that means the only way to ensure accuracy is through training. Take the time to train with your defense rounds, because one day it could save your life. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1140 feet per second and muzzle energy of 445 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures this ammunition at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Order now and train like you may one day be forced to fight.
