- Q & A
When the FBI was looking for the perfect ammunition for its agents, they were adamant in their desire to have one-shot stopping power but not intense recoil. Enter the .40 S&W, created by, of course, Smith & Wesson, in 1990. The .40 S&W’s parent case was the 10mm, which, yes, is a bit longer; no, the two are not interchangeable. The closest you’re going to get to interchangeability is with Smith & Wesson’s double-action revolver that’s capable of firing both with the use of moon clips. Why would you want to fire both, though, when the .40 S&W is in a special category all its own? This powerhouse is capable of delivering nice, solid knockdown power without the startling recoil of the 10mm; what more do you need to know?
At 180 grain these are pretty heavy rounds, so they’re going to give you the stopping power you’re looking for while moving at a nice speed as well. Each round flies from the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second and impacts your target with a muzzle energy of 399 foot-pounds. These are Fiocchi’s XTPJHP round: they have Hornady’s state-of-the-art XTP bullets in them and as JHP’s they begin to mushroom immediately upon impact, but thanks to their jacketing that expansion is controlled, so a deeper wound track is created. Fiocchi produces these defense rounds in new-production, non-corrosive brass cases with boxer primer, meaning you can reload them.
There are 50 defense rounds in this box. When Fiocchi was founded in 1876, their headquarters and main plant were founded in Lecco, Italy, however, they eventually realized they needed an American plant, too. Today they have a plant in Ozark, Missouri, that handles orders within the U.S. They’re known for exceptional quality, and these defense rounds in particular are a fantastic choice. With 50 rounds you can keep your gun loaded for personal protection purposes and have some left over for training, because defense rounds don’t behave like target rounds. Get your order in today to ensure your .40 S&W is loaded with defense rounds you can depend on.
