- Q & A
The 1986 FBI Miami Shootout affected not only the FBI the future of guns in general. On the day in question a pair of serial bank robbers led a team of eight FBI agents on a car chase that ended with a firefight in the streets of Miami. Although both robbers were shot early on they continued to fight, shooting every agent but one before finally succumbing to their own wounds. Two agents were killed, one of whom was a skilled marksman. In the aftermath the FBI decided their agents needed more powerful weapons, but without the greater recoil of the 10mm. In 1990 the .40 S&W was created.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by Remington. Each round weighs in at 155 grain which makes these medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means they’re light enough to zip towards targets at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts while remaining heavy enough to strike targets with greater force. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, slowing it to allow for greater penetration than standard HPs and creating a devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Remington you get 50 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and spare magazines loaded and ready for personal protection. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds do, so you’ll need to practice to ensure accuracy and placement. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 1205 feet per second and muzzle energy of 500 foot-pounds. Remington manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas according to high standards. Order now to protect yourself and your loved ones.
