The .40 S&W has only been around since 1990, but even in that times its gathered a vast fan base. It’s literally the sweet spot of the ammunition world, because it has excellent stopping power and less recoil all in one package, while its parent cartridge, the 10mm, has power but is a far hotter round, and the 9mm doesn’t deliver as much strength. With your .40 S&W you’re more than well equipped to handle threats to your safety – and the safety of your loved ones. But if you’re going to carry your favorite handgun for self-defense, you need to make sure it’s loaded with good defense rounds. And if you want not just good but great defense rounds, you want something like Federal’s HydraShoks.

At 180 grain these are good, heavy rounds, so they pack a serious punch. These are Jacketed Hollow Point rounds, so they’re capable of rapid energy transfer and deliver controlled expansion on impact. These rounds create devastatingly deep, broad wound tracks, the kind that stops assailants in their tracks. Their jacketing also makes the bullet stronger overall and also prevents lead fouling in your gun’s barrel. Each round has fantastic speed, flying to your target with a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and meets its target with the power of a muzzle energy of 400 foot-pounds. This is excellent self-defense ammunition; if you carry your .40 S&W for defense purposes, look no further for your chosen carry load.

You only get 20 defense rounds in this box, and while that’s enough to keep your gun loaded, it doesn’t allow for much training. Defense rounds produce more recoil and overall power than target rounds, so it’s wise to train with your chosen ammunition. Buy more than one box so you can load your gun and also fire enough rounds through your weapon to deliver accurate follow-up shots. This ammunition is made by Federal at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. They’ve been making top-of-the-line ammunition since 1922, and all their products undergo rigorous testing and strict quality control. Don’t trust your life to just any defense ammunition, trust Federal.
