- Q & A
In 1986 a pair of serial bank robbers led the FBI on a car chase that ended in a shootout on the streets of Miami. It would become known as the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, and it would affect the course of gun history. On the day in question both robbers sustained gunshot wounds early on but kept on fighting, and they managed to shoot every agent present except one before succumbing to their own wounds. Two agents were also killed, one of whom was a talented sharpshooter but had lost his glasses during the fight. Afterwards the FBI decided they needed to arm their agents with more powerful guns, and in 1990, the .40 S&W was created.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by Federal. Each round weighs in at 155 grain, making these medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means they offer the best of both worlds, remaining light enough to travel at higher speeds but heavy enough to impact targets solidly. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion allowing for deeper penetration and the creation of a larger wound cavity. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. With 50 rounds you can keep your gun and spare magazines loaded and ready for personal protection. If you want to train with your chosen defense rounds, which is recommended, order more than one box. Defense rounds produce more recoil than targets rounds, requiring practice for accuracy and placement. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 1140 feet per second and muzzle energy of 445 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and keep your .40 S&W loaded with these high quality, American-made defense rounds.
