By ammunition standards the .40 S&W is a young round having just hit the market in 1990. It was the result of four years of handloading and customization following the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout and quickly built a dedicated fan base. During the shootout a pair of serial bank robbers led a team of FBI agents on a car chase that ended in a shootout in the streets of Miami. Although both robbers were shot early on they kept fighting long enough to shoot all but one agent, killing two. In the aftermath the FBI decided their agents needed more powerful rounds, but without the recoil of a 10mm, and in 1990 the .40 S&W was their answer.
This particular .40 S&W is manufactured by PMC (Precision Made Cartridge). Each round weighs in at 165 grain making these medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means these rounds are light enough to travel down-range at higher speeds but still heavy enough to impact targets solidly. These are Enclosed Metal Jacket-Non-Toxic, EMJ-NT, rounds and do not expand on impact. The bullet is fully enclosed so these fire cleanly and keep the air around you cleaner as well. This ammunition is designed for target practice and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from PMC. This box is just the right size for tossing in your range bag or stacking on the shelf of your gun safe for later use, although we’re sure it won’t be much later. These rounds are produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 989 feet per second and muzzle energy of 358 foot-pounds. PMC manufactures ammunition at their longtime factories in Angang and South Dongrae, Korea according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. Order now and hit the range with your .40 S&W.
