- Q & A
As World War II came to a close the market was flooded with leftover ammunition, but it didn’t seem to be good quality. No matter how good the shooter was the rounds were not performing well, and after seeing it happen time and again Joyce Hornady decided to do something about it. Although he could have made ammo only for himself Joyce decided to manufacture it on a much larger scale, and Hornady was born. That was more than fifty years ago and today Hornady has a stellar reputation for making some of the greatest quality ammunition in the industry.
These rounds are manufactured by Hornady for your .40 S&W. They weigh in at 180 grain, making them relatively heavyweight for the cartridge size. Being heavier enables them to strike targets with greater force which is just what you want from a defense round. These are Hornady’s XTP, eXtreme Terminal Performance, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they mushroom they also decelerate, creating a devastating wound cavity and slowing to prevent over-penetration. This ammunition is designed specifically for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 200 defense rounds: 20 boxes of 20 rounds each. With 200 rounds you can keep your carry gun and spare magazines loaded and ready for protection purposes with enough left for training. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds so the only way to ensure accuracy is to practice with your chosen ammunition. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and muzzle energy of 361 foot-pounds. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska according to exacting standards for quality and performance. Hornady takes self-defense seriously, and so should you. Order now to be prepared.
