The 40 S&W could easily be described as the sweet spot of the handgun world. It was designed in 1990 after 4 years of testing and research following the infamous 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, but despite its youth in the ammunition world it’s quite popular. The .40 S&W produces drift and drop almost identical to that of the 9mm while also producing greater power overall, but with less felt recoil than its parent cartridge, the 10mm. If you carry a .40 S&W for personal protection you need to train accordingly and keep it loaded with the right ammunition.
This particular ammunition is manufactured by Hornady for your .40 S&W. It weighs in at 175 grain, making it relatively heavy for the cartridge size. Being heavier means it hits harder, which is just what you want from a defense round. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and expand on impact. Because they’re jacketed they expand more slowly than standard HPs, penetrating more deeply and creating a larger wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1010 feet per second and muzzle energy of 396 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 500 defense rounds. With 500 rounds you can dedicate serious time to training with your daily carry handgun and have plenty left over to keep the gun and spare magazines loaded and ready. Training with defense ammo is a must because it is the only way to ensure accuracy given its greater recoil and muzzle rise. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska, according to strict standards of quality and performance. Order now and get ready to train with your .40 S&W.
