The .40 S&W was created in 1990 after the 1986 FBI Miami shootout. In the incident, agents were chasing known bank robbers – who they knew were heavily armed and dangerous – and when they finally caught up to them in the center of town, a firefight immediately ensued. One of the agents who was killed was an incredibly talented marksman whose glasses were broken in the fight, and when the dust settled the FBI felt their agents needed better ammunition. The 10mm was considered too hot because it was more difficult to get back on target, fast, and in the end it was Smith and Wesson that made the .40 S&W for them. In no time the cartridge was being used in law enforcement and had become a favorite in the civilian world as well.

At 155 grain these are medium-weight .40 S&W rounds. Their lighter weight helps them attain greater speeds, and they’re still heavy enough to make a serious impact. As JHP’s they begin to mushroom the moment they hit their target, and their jacketing controls that expansion so the wound channel is deeper. A deeper, more devastating wound channel is going to halt your assailant all the faster, so that kind of power is just what you want. These defense rounds are Magtech’s Guardian Gold, which are precision manufactured to offer you exceptional protection. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1205 feet per second and muzzle energy of 500 foot-pounds.

When you place your order you get 20 defense rounds. That way you can keep your handgun loaded for self-defense and still fire a couple rounds to see how they feel. Since defense rounds have more power than target rounds it’s a very good idea to train with them instead of only training with target rounds, so it’s also a good idea to buy a box or two for training purposes alone. Magtech manufactures this ammunition at their plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil; all ammunition meets SAAMI or CIP specifications. Be ready for whatever may come by keeping your .40 S&W loaded with quality defense ammunition. Order now.
