It doesn’t get much better than Federal 40 S&W ammo and this box of 50 JHP bullets will give you just enough of a taste to find out why!
In the gun world, the .40 S&W is fairly young having just been designed in 1990. But despite its young age this tough little round as made its mark in the world of firearms, and for some excellent reasons. The .40 S&W came about as a result of the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, where ruthless bank robbers managed to gun down two agents before being killed themselves by other agents. Because of the way the incident played out the FBI decided its agents needed better firepower. They knew they wanted a round like the 10mm, but they didn’t want the recoil of the bigger round, and after some adjustments were made, the .40 S&W was created.
These .40 S&W rounds are fairly heavy at 180 grain. Being heavier weight makes them well-suited as defense rounds because they’re able to pack a heftier punch, but they’re still light enough to reach your target with impressive speed. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and deliver controlled expansion on impact. The jackets allow for more penetration than a standard HP round delivers while also preventing lead fouling in the gun’s barrel. Each of these rounds moves towards your target with a muzzle velocity of 1010 feet per second and impacts with a muzzle energy of 410 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically made for self-defense use.
There are 20 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. Federal has been manufacturing ammunition for almost 100 years, and over that time they’ve fine-tuned the process.
